Why Is A Medicaid Pediatrician Is Important?
A pediatrician is an integral part of your child’s life. Practically within days after birth, your newborn will begin a long-term relationship with their pediatrician. From physical exams and vaccinations to routine screenings and monitoring developmental milestones, choosing a pediatrician that you trust to provide your little one with care is perhaps one of the most important decisions a parent can make.
Of course, we also understand that some families are facing financial hardships, which may make it more difficult to afford certain treatments or medical care. Here at Peekaboo Pediatrics, our team of pediatricians and caring staff believe that every child should be able to get the medical care they need when they need it to lead healthy, happy lives. This is why we accept all children and teens covered under Medicaid insurance.
Medicaid, or more specifically CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program), provides extensive coverage for your child including,
- Routine checkups
- Pediatrician visits (to treat illnesses)
- Immunizations and screenings
This plan also covers emergency services, inpatient and outpatient hospitalization and any laboratory and imaging services, as well as access to mental health professionals and medical specialists (if needed). To learn more about how CHIP works in Texas, click here.
Peekaboo Pediatrics prides itself on providing comprehensive medical care to children and teens living in and around the Houston area. From breastfeeding and newborn checkups to physicals and treating childhood diseases such as asthma, our mother-daughter pediatric team offers the perfect combination of knowledge and compassion.
Worrying about whether or not you can afford to get your child the health care they need can be stressful, but it’s comforting to know that Medicaid can cover a lot of the routine checkups and care that your baby or child needs until they reach adulthood. If you still have questions about Medicaid coverage and the pediatric services it covers, don’t hesitate to contact our front desk to learn more. After all, every child should be able to get the preventive medical care they need, and Peekaboo Pediatrics wants to make that possible. We also accept most health insurance plans.
