Latest news & updates
January 13, 2021
Longwood Pediatrics would like to update you on recent changes to federal billing guidelines. Effective January 1, 2021, the medical coding laws have changed. The new coding regulations outline a format for billing based on factors including medical decision making, complexity, and tests ordered.
For some medical problems, such as ear infections, you may find that this new coding system increases, decreases, or does not change at all the cost of the visit. We do not choose how much to charge for each visit; we are required to follow the new billing guidelines.
These changes to billing will also apply for any medical problems that are encountered and managed during the course of a well visit. For example, if your child’s asthma is reviewed at their well visit, there may be an additional charge associated with that visit.
Depending on your insurance, there may also be a copayment related to the charges for the medical problem.
Well visits continue to have no associated copayment, but there may be a copayment added to your bill if medical problems are managed during the course of a well visit.
Please ask our billing department if you have any questions about your bill at 617-277-1703.
Flu vaccine update
August 21, 2020
On 8/19/2020, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health announced that flu shots will now be required in MA for all students (6 months & up) who are attending any school or childcare. Students must receive the flu vaccine by Dec 31, 2020 for the 2020-2021 flu season. Pediatric offices like ours receive their vaccines from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Currently we do not yet have the flu vaccine and do not know exactly when the vaccine will arrive. When we do receive the vaccine, we will send out a message to all our patients and will update our website and social media. We will make every effort to distribute vaccines quickly and safely.
If your child receives the flu vaccine elsewhere, please send us a MyChart message so that we can update our records. We appreciate your continued support and patience.
