28April JOIN Our Practice ~ Info You Will Need

SVPAM is proud that we have never closed our practice to any insurance panel including Medicaid, however we still recommend that you check with your particular insurance company prior to selecting our group to make sure that your individual plan includes us (that may be out of our control based on your benefit package).

If you are required to select a PCP, you must make sure that appointments with SVPAM are scheduled for dates on or AFTER your effective date with our group or you may be asked to reschedule until the insurance transfer is resolved.

For Parents of Newborns joining the practice:  We make rounds and see newborns at the Heritage Valley Health System Sewickley and Beaver Campuses.  If you deliver at either of those facilities, your nurse will notify us upon the birth of your new little one & depending on the time of delivery, as long as everything is going well with the baby, we will be in to see/meet you both during morning or evening rounds.  If there is an emergency with your baby at any point, the delivery/nursery staff will notify us immediately to come to the hospital.   If you deliver at another facility, their attending pediatricians will see/examine your child while in the hospital.  We will see you in our office 1-3 days after discharge.  Regardless of where you deliver, please contact our office upon discharge from the hospital to schedule the Newborn Weight Check appointment with one of our providers.  The MD who discharges the baby from the hospital will let you know when they would like to see you & the baby.  You will register with us over the phone with one of our Front Office Customer Service Specialists.  They will advise you of any necessary items to bring with you to the appointment.  Please request that the hospital nursery forward a copy of your infant's birth & discharge records to our office immediately prior to the weight check appointment. If you can not keep your scheduled appointment, please make sure you give our office at least 24 hours notice or else a no show fee may be charged.

For Parents of Older Children joining the practice:  You are required to request your child's medical records, including a complete immunization record, from the previous physician and submit to our office prior to your child's first appointment.  At a minimum, if you can not obtain the records prior to the introductory appointment, we do require that immunization records be submitted at the first visit for the safety of your child and other children/staff in the practice who may not yet be immunized.  Please see the FORMS & BILLING section of this website to print a copy of the Authorization to Release Records form if your previous practice doesn't provide you with one.  You will register with us over the phone with one of our Front Office Customer Service Specialists.  They will advise you of any necessary items to bring with you to the appointment.  If you can not keep your scheduled appointment, please make sure you give our office at least 24 hours notice or else a no show fee may be charged.

SVPAM Front Office Customer Care Specialists are available during office hours to answer any questions you have about transferring to our practice and becoming a part of the SVPAM family!  Remember, SVPAM is here for all your pediatric healthcare needs.  Thank you for your trust in us and WELCOME!!
