Tips that will help reduce insurance and billing difficulties

  • Review your family’s health insurance policy and become familiar with the co-pays, services, tests and treatments covered and the steps required to get referrals.
  • If your insurance company requires a referral for testing or future visits, you must contact your primary care physician (PCP) to get the required referral and make sure it is processed before your appointment.
  • Remember that referral fees and co-pays are your responsibility.
  • Families receiving Medicaid should monitor all changes in their coverage.
  • Check your coverage every 6 months to make sure your provider is still accepted by Texas Children’s Hospital.
  • Here is a list of insurance plans accepted by Texas Children’s Hospital.
