Please supply the correct answer.
When you contact the Epidermolysis Bullosa Center, a staff member will mail you a packet of information. Included will be forms to fill out so that we can be familiar with your child and his other medical history before the clinic visit.
You will receive a set of forms to complete and return before an official appointment can be scheduled. Please fill out all of the forms and return them as soon as
possible. The forms can be sent to the Epidermolysis Bullosa Center by mail or
email. Visit our Contact Us page for complete mailing
information. An official appointment cannot be scheduled until all forms are returned to
us. Once we have received the forms, we will contact you to confirm your
appointment date and time.
One of the benefits of the EB Center is that your child will be seen by several specialists in a single visit. While the schedule of visits will be more convenient for your family, the referral process and co-payments will not change. For example, if your insurance provider requires you to pay a $10 co-pay per physician visit, and your child is seen by three specialists, the total amount owed would be $30.
We advise you to contact your insurance company to verify your benefits and coverage. There may be charges your insurance company will not cover, such as co-payments, deductibles or out-of-pocket expenses. In addition, you may need to obtain referrals for each physician. Pre-approval for a visit does not guarantee your claim will be paid. Please check with your insurance company.
Co-payments are due when services are provided to your child. We will not know the number of physicians examining your child until the time of the visit, so be prepared to pay as many as six co-payments.
Contact your health insurance provider to obtain prior authorization before your first visit with the Epidermolysis Bullosa Center.
