10/14/2021– COVID-19 UPDATE

Hello- Here at Village Pediatrics we are all well and hope that you and your families are too! The VP providers and staff are here to help care for your children ages 0-22. We are seeing scheduled patients in our Southern Village office from 8am to 5pm. 

 

We’re also able to treat many problems as Virtual Visits using internet video connection via Face Time or secure Zoom.  If you have a concern that you’ve been meaning to discuss with your child’s doctor, this is an ideal time to call!

 

To keep your family healthy, we recommend scheduling the following types of appointments:

  • Newborns and babies under 2 years of age will be seen in the office for regular checkups (birth and 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 24 months). These visits are so important to your infants health! At each wellness visit:
  • Your baby Is weighed and measured to monitor growth parameters
  • Your baby has a hands on physical exam to screen for serious illness
  • You have time ask questions and we provide anticipatory guidance
  • Your baby receives necessary vaccines (a resurgence in measles or whooping cough would be terrible right now!)
  • Sick visits are by appointment only, please call for same day appointment
    • Fevers, sore throats, coughs, stomach aches can all be evaluated including any necessary testing
  • Virtual visits using Face Time or Zoom technology-
    • Routine medication follow- up visits for ADHD or mood
    • New onset concerns for ADHD, anxiety, OCD, depression
    • Behavioral concerns such as sleep challenges, picky eating, potty struggles, toddler tantrums, and setting limits with your teen
    • Chronic medical problems

 


 

 

 

 

 

The Beginning of the End

Due to the recent 53% cut to vaccine administration reimbursement and the ever increasing barriers to care created by the program, Village Pediatrics has decided to end our relationship with NC Medicaid.

We are no longer enrolling new Medicaid patients, but if we are currently serving your family, we intend to honor our commitment and continue to serve you. Additionally, new babies with a sibling in the practice will be accepted. Patients with commercial insurance that transition to Medicaid due to financial hardship will also be served. Unfortunately, we will not accept any new families with primary or secondary Medicaid.

This was easily the most difficult decision we have ever made as a practice. With no increase in reimbursement since 2008 and fees only 83.7% of what Medicare pays a family practitioner for the exact same service, we feel this step was necessary to maintain our high standard of care. We’ve made considerable investments of time and capital to improve quality and accountability, and unfortunately, that style of practice is no longer compatible with NC Medicaid.
