Billing Questions for Lab Work

Lab _drawIMPORTANT: We use numerous, specialty labs to process the samples that we draw in our office.

While some standard lab tests can be sent to LabCorp or Quest, please note that many of the functional medicine lab testing will be sent to Genova, Vibrant America or CPL.

We cannot guarantee that these companies are in-network with your insurance company.

For this reason, we have provided our direct representatives contact information below, who can explain to you the pricing and billing structure for the suggested tests your child will be having.

You will be billed by the lab company directly, and all billing questions should be directed to them using the information below.

Our office will not handle billing questions regarding lab bills received in the mail; therefore we strongly suggest that you keep this information and have your questions answered prior to scheduling your appointment.

1. Genova - Cathy Hauptstueck at (214) 537-9270 or email: chauptstueck@gdx.net

2. Vibrant - Cesar Lopez at (817) 914-2159 or email: clopez@vibrantamerica.com

Telehealth Appointments at Healthy Kids Pediatrics, Frisco

We are excited to announce that beginning in February, 2018, Healthy Kids Pediatrics will be offering telehealth appointments to all our patients.

These appointments can be done from your office, on the go or from the comfort of your own home.

Telehealth appointments will be for:

Telehealth Photo

  • Lab reviews
  • Follow up appointments
  • Medication discussions & any advice required
  • Chronic conditions and concerns

In the past we have utilized a triage nurse to answer patient questions. However going forward, we will no longer be answering questions via phone call but with an actual live video appointment with one of our providers.

Please note that this includes emails sent to the office. You may of course send an email with questions to the office and a telehealth appointment will be scheduled for you.

Please contact your insurance companies to see if telehealth is a covered benefit with your insurance plan. This is not something we can check for you, you will have to look into your benefits via phone call or online.

Telehealth appointments will be billed to your insurance.

If you are a self-pay patient, you will be able to pay for the appointment online through our epayments section of our patient portal. (epayments will be available in February).

Dr. Bain and our other providers will NOT be conducting sick or well child appointments via telehealth. At HKP we believe that we need to physically be able to see, assess and examine your children if they are not feeling well, as they may require further testing. They will, however answer any questions you may have regarding medications or advice needed via telehealth.

You must have signed up for our patient portal to be able to have a tele-health appointment. You can download the Healow app to your phone or can access Healow through the patient portal when it is time for your appointment.

Please note your child must also have been seen within the last 6 months in our office to be able to conduct a telehealth appointment.
