New year, new benefits? Important Insurance Plan Update

Great Kids Pediatrics continues to participate with as many commercial health plans as possible. However, we are not currently contracted with Aetna QHP, unless it is under Memorial Hermann, Cigna Local Plus or Cigna HMO Connect, or United Healthcare Compass EPO.  We are contracted on other commercial Aetna, Cigna, and United Healthcare plans. We are a Tier II provider for Aetna Smart Care.  (we continue to participate with regular Cigna HMO, United HMO, and Aetna HMO plans)

We are unable to accept any more patients under the Blue Cross Blue Shield Advantage HMO – BAV. (we continue to participate with regular HMO Blue). If you have been assigned to one of our providers after 11/18/15 under the HMO Advantage plan, please contact BCBS because we will be unable to accept your child under that insurance. EFFECTIVE 1/1/2017 WE WILL NO LONGER BE PROVIDERS ON THE BCBS ADVANTAGE HMO PLAN.

Beginning April 1, 2016, we will participate in the Cigna SureFit plan, but only through Memorial Hermann. 

If you have had a change in your insurance coverage, please contact your health insurance company to verify that our doctors are contracted with your plan.
