How long does a home visit last and what does it include?
Home visits typically last 1.5 hours. This allows time for collection of a thorough history, observation of at least one feeding, and discussion of the agreed upon plan of care. In addition, we include completion of thorough notes which can be shared with your child's pediatrician; any necessary communication between us and both your pediatrician and OB, and 2 weeks of follow-up communications between us and you, the client.
Can a home or office visit be billed to a health insurance policy?
Unfortunately, consultations cannot currently be billed through insurance unless they take place in the office of one of our pediatric partners. We can, however, provide you with documentation to supply to your insurance carrier to request a reimbursement of the amount paid.
Which pediatric offices do you partner with?
We are currently proudly serving patients of Dr Ramon Ramos (in the SAVANNAH office) on Tuesday and Friday each week and the patients of SouthCoast Pediatrics (in the RICHMOND HILL office) on Monday and Thursday each week. To schedule please call the desired office directly as Latch does not have access to those scheduling systems.
