  • Fracture Clinic

    We offer a walk-in fracture clinic for children with acute musculoskeletal injuries every Monday from 12:30pm-5pm at our Dayton Children's office and every Friday from 1pm-4pm at our Miami Valley South office.

     

    No appointment necessary!  If your child arrives before 5pm, he or she will be seen and treated that day.

     

    This is a first-come, first-serve clinic so wait times will vary anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours.

     

    As an alternative you can always call the office ahead of time for the next available scheduled appointment with a provider, usually within the next 24-48 hours.

  • Before your visit (Medical Forms)

    Provided to the right are various forms that require completion prior to your visit and/or surgery. Please download the appropriate form as directed by your physician and/or staff by clicking on the name of the form. Please bring the completed form(s) with you to your scheduled visit. This will help expedite the registration process. Thank you.

     

  • Billing Information

    Your insurance company requires that we bill our services using a coding system known as CPT (current Procedural Terminology). The codes used to describe the services we did for you are found in the "surgery" section of the CPT code book. This does not mean we are implying that you had an operation. This is merely the way the CPT book is organized for ease of use by both your insurance company and physicians.

     

    According to CPT guidelines, fracture care is billed as a "packaged or global" service. This means that at the time of initial care, a bill is generated that includes:

       1.  The first cast or splint application

       2.  Usually 90 days of normal, uncomplicated follow-up care. (This may vary with different insurance companies/policies).

     

    What is not included in the package. (There will be a separate charge):

       1.  Physician evaluation of the fracture

       2.  X-rays

       3.  All casting supplies (fiberglass, gortex, ace wraps, slings, cast shoes, etc).

       4.  Any replacement cast application.

       5.  The evaluation and management of any additional problems or injuries.

       6.  The treatment of complications.

     

    If you have any questions about fracture billing, please contact our office.

    Appointments

    Please call the office to make an appointment in advance. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please call us as far in advance as possible so we may use that time to see another patient in need of care and to avoid a $25 no-show charge. We make a sincere effort to adhere to our appointment schedule and appreciate your patience if we are late due to emergencies or hospital surgery.

     

    Fees & Payments

    We make every effort to decrease the cost of your medical care. Therefore, we request payment arrangements for all office services at the time they are rendered unless prior arrangements have been made. We accept all major credit cards as well as cash and checks for your convenience. If we are a participating provider of your insurance company, we will bill them. However, payment is the patient's responsibility. We will help in any way we can to assist you in handling claims.

    Please request all prescriptions and authorizations for renewals between 9:00am – 4:00pm, Monday to Friday, when our full records are available. Refills requested at other times will be filled only for extreme or emergent circumstances.
