Coastal Pediatric Orthopedics accepts most insurances. We are happy to contact your insurance company on your behalf to check your benefits, whether they be in-network or out-of-network. We know unexpected accidents can happen – we never balance bill our patients for any amount your insurance company does not cover. Beyond primary insurance, we also offer self-pay rates, as well as accept secondary insurance plans through athletic and school programs.

Please call us so we can review the details of your plan and answer any questions to help you decide the best option for your family. We will provide an accurate estimate of any out-of-pocket costs prior to scheduling an appointment.
