Insurance and Billing FAQs

The Carithers Pediatric Group physicians participate in most major insurance companies.

Please check with your insurance company to assure the following:

  • Our doctors are participating providers in your specific plan type
  • If your insurance plan requires a primary care physician (PCP) to be assigned
  • Verify your benefits based on your specific coverage

Our office does not file secondary insurance. Many plans require that you make a co-payment at the time of your visit. To make it as easy as possible for you, we accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards and Apple Pay.

Our practice participates with the plans listed below. If you do not see your exact plan listed, please call our billing office at (904) 387-9505 with your policy information, as some of the smaller insurance companies are affiliated with those listed.
