Payment Options

 

INSURANCE

Dr. Schecter is IN-NETWORK with the following insurance plans. IN-NETWORK claims will be submitted directly on your behalf.

  • AETNA (excluding Aetna Better Health/Aetna Medicaid plans)

Please note that Breastfeeding Medicine consultations and tongue tie consultations involve both the breastfeeding parent and baby. One claim will be submitted for the parent, and a separate claim will be submitted for the child.

  • If parent and child are covered by different insurance policies, please inform the office so that we submit your claims properly.

  • If only the baby is covered by an in-network insurance plan, there will be a separate lactation fee for the parent. An insurance claim will be provided to submit for reimbursement.

 

Payment is collected at the time of service for any anticipated member responsibility (copay, co-insurance, deductible).

If your insurance plan requires referrals, you will need to request separate referrals for both parent and baby in advance of the visit.
