Covid Public Health Emergency
The federal government confirmed May 11, 2023 as the end of the Covid Public Health Emergency (PHE). Over the last three years, per PHE mandates, most insurance companies waived the cost share (copay, coinsurance or deductible) for covid testing and office visits that were ‘covid in nature’. Beginning May 12, 2023 most insurance companies have made it known that they will no longer waive cost-share for covid testing and covid in nature office visits. All covid testing and covid in nature visits will be paid in accordance with the patient’s standard medical benefits. » Read more about: Covid Public Health Emergency »

We want to acknowledge that availability of both well-child and sick visit appointments has been unusually low. We have been balancing transition existing LPG families to their new LPG primary care provider, which adds additional time spent building relationships and learning patient health history. Already we are experiencing a high volume of sick patients; which is unusual this early in the season. We ask for you patience and understanding when interacting with our committed team. They come to work each day with out patients and their families in mind. » Read more about: Important Message »

Formula Shortage Info
We know that some families are having difficulties finding their infant’s usual formula right now due to nationwide formula shortages. No store brands were involved in the recall. Most babies will tolerate a switch between formula ‘types’ with minimal difficulty or only a few days of some mild GI discomfort as they get used to a different type. Of course if your baby has medical reasons to be on a specific formula it’s important to talk with your doctor before doing something different, » Read more about: Formula Shortage Info »
