Health Insurance Plans We Accept
Billing & Financial Assistance
At Phoenix Children’s, we accept many health plans through health insurance and provider networks. However, each health plan is different. We want to make sure you have the coverage you need before you receive care. Please check with your health insurance company directly for any questions about what they cover at Phoenix Children’s or Phoenix Children’s Medical Group.
Make sure Phoenix Children’s contracts with your insurance plan. Ask your insurance provider if Phoenix Children’s is in-network or out-of-network. Know that just because we accept your insurance plan doesn’t mean your insurance will pay all your medical expenses.

Cost Share Plans and Healthcare Sharing Plans
A cost share or healthcare sharing plan means an organization’s members “share” medical costs. Those with a cost share or healthcare share plan do not have health insurance. Therefore, we consider any patient who is enrolled in a sharing plan as “self-pay” or “uninsured,” when seeking care at Phoenix Children’s.
If you participate in a cost share plan, you will get a statement for the services received. It will show the appropriate self-pay discount. You may forward your statement to your cost share group for review and reimbursement. However, you are responsible for payment regardless of whether your cost share group reimburses you or not. We don’t send claims or statements to cost share groups directly. It’s your family’s responsibility to submit to your cost share group.
Note: This cost share policy currently is effective for new patients. For existing patients with cost share plans, the policy is effective January 1, 2024.
