After Hours Care
For non-life-threatening emergencies, the Pediatric Group is pleased to offer extended availability, after normal operating hours, through our telephonic on-call system. This service is intended for non-life-threatening emergencies and not for general advice or for services otherwise available during normal operating hours. Please call 410.721.2273 to schedule an appointment or to reach the on-call provider. Our call center hours are Monday-Thursday 6am – 8pm, Friday 6am – 6pm and Saturday 7am – 1pm. After hours, our on-call provider can be reached for non-life-threatening emergencies at 443-481-3125.
Services provided after normal operating hours will incur a standard fee of $25.00. This will not be billed to insurance and will be considered a patient responsibility. From time-to-time calls will be more complex and require a level of professional consultation and care planning that we feel should be compensated above our standard on-call service fee. Additional fees will be assessed for phone care when a significant clinical decision and plan are made that did not require an office visit. Billing codes are available for this service; However, most insurance carriers do not pay for these services. In this case we will consider these charges a patient responsibility.
While the Providers of the Pediatric Group are always available to provide the care you need, we do encourage you to contact our office during normal business hours for non-urgent matters.
