ABOUT SIGNATURE PEDIATRICS

 

Signature Pediatrics is the premier concierge pediatric practice in the Carolinas. We know how important it is for you to find the best pediatrician for your child; one with a personal connection with you, too.

 

Our goal is to provide a true medical home, with ultimate accessibility and convenience while delivering the highest quality comprehensive, compassionate pediatric care. This personalized healthcare model means that your pediatrician not only knows you and your child, but is also just a call away in an emergency. Our parents find that their membership investment provides significant benefits in wellness and convenience for the entire family, and thus, peace of mind.

 

Advantages of Concierge Medicine:

  • Minimal to no wait time with every appointment.
  • Low patient-to-doctor ratio.
  • 24/7 access, same day appointments and “Virtual Visits” via the internet or phone.
  • A thorough and unhurried approach–more time with the doctor to discuss all aspects of your child’s healthcare from infancy through adolescence and young adulthood, with a focus on prevention and wellness.
  • Comprehensive in-office services such as X-ray, IV medications and fluids, labs, and travel medicine.
  • Extra services such as ear piercing, simple suturing, and newborn circumcisions.
  • All after hours calls are directly answered by the doctor without going through an answering service or nurse triage system.
  • Our office features a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere for you and your child.

 

HOW MEMBERSHIP WORKS

 

Signature Pediatrics differs from other practices because our pediatricians care for fewer than 10 percent of the number of patients most pediatricians treat, allowing for unhurried appointments and unlimited availability.

 

We are able to do this by charging an annual membership fee. Membership ranges between $1,800 and $2,500 per child, depending on their age, and number of other family members who are members of Signature Healthcare and Signature Pediatrics. The fee can be paid annually or monthly. This fee is in addition to the regular medical fees that are billed in standard fashion to your child’s insurance. The membership fee is generally not covered by insurance, but will return significant benefits to your child and your family. Your tax advisor can clarify whether the membership fee qualifies for a tax deduction.

HOW SIGNATURE WORKS WITH YOUR INSURANCE

 

Signature Pediatrics accepts most medical insurance. All costs associated with medical services are billed in the standard fashion to your insurance company. Members pay designated co-payments just as they would at another practice (as required by Federal law).

*Be aware that if you purchase your insurance through the Marketplace or individually, BCBS of NC has introduced two new plans, "Blue Value" and "Blue Local". Unlike previous plans, we– as well as other independent physicians– are not allowed to participate. We have reached out to BCBS to become part of these networks without success.

 

Therefore, we will be out-of-network with these plans for all of 2017 at a minimum. Signature Pediatrics is dedicated in serving our valued patients and helping you meet the challenges of a difficult insurance climate. Call us at 704-944-8388 and we will be happy to discuss available options with you
