Frequently Asked Questions

Does your pediatric doctor near me accept insurance for newborns?

Yes! At Beittel-Becker Pediatric Associates, we accept most major insurance plans for newborns, including Medicaid. View our full list of accepted providers here.

If I have Medicaid, will my baby automatically be insured?

Yes, newborns are covered for at least 60 days after birth on Medicaid. However, it’s important to know that Medicaid requires new parents to select a PCP in order for them to pay for claims. If you haven’t done this prior to the baby’s birth, your child may be assigned the same provider that their mother sees rather than the pediatrician you’ve selected. 

This can become an issue for new parents beginning care at Beittel-Becker, as we don’t always receive this information during the scheduling process. If you haven’t selected us as your baby’s PCP before their appointment, the claim for your visit may be denied, and these claims can be difficult to have paid retroactively.

What do I need to do before scheduling an appointment for my baby?

It’s recommended to establish your baby’s primary pediatrician even before birth – preferably during the second trimester of pregnancy. Before scheduling an appointment with us, be sure to check your insurance plan to make sure we are within your network. 

If you have Medicaid, be sure to select us as your baby’s PCP as soon as possible to avoid any issues with your coverage.

How can I get started with the best newborn specialist near me?
