Administration Fee

There are many services that we perform in the workday that we do not individually bill for. Instead, as opposed to some practices that do charge for these services separately, we have opted to charge an annual comprehensive fee that covers these items.

These services include:

  • Access to a Board Certified pediatrician for telephone consultation 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • Same-day appointments for emergent care
  • Saturday office hours, Sunday and holiday availability
  • Pharmacy call-ins for refills and new prescriptions
  • Camp, school and sport participation form completion and submission
  • Prenatal interviews. Expectant moms and partners can come meet with preferred physician and tour the office

Our Administration Fee allows us the liberty to provide the kind of care that our patients have come to appreciate without individually charging for the services we (happily) provide.

Fees are:

  • 1 child $325/year
  • 2 children $375/year
  • 3 children $425/year

The annual administration fee is a non-contractual fee that your insurance company will not cover.

For any questions regarding our office policies, please call our office at (310) 264-2104.
