Omega Pediatrics is a leading pediatric primary care practice in Roswell-Alpharetta Georgia. We provide the most accessible care with hours of service up to 9 pm on weekdays as well as telemedicine access for the convenience of busy families. Below is a synopsis of what Amerigroup is providing for families across the state.
Amerigroup – Georgia Families
Amerigroup community care is one of the plans currently offered for Georgia Families and has been offered in the entire state of Georgia since 2012. If you’re currently a member of Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids, the Department of Community Health services are supplemented by one of the healthcare plans in your region, such as Amerigroup. One of the added benefits of Amerigroup is free preapproved over-the-counter medicines as well as free membership to Boys & Girls Club for kids 6 to 18. You can also have access to educational programs that would help you manage any health conditions. If your PCP is already a member of the Amerigroup network, then your doctor will be advised of the changes to your plan.
Adoption and Amerigroup
Amerigroup is the only plan that serves children in foster care as well as children receiving adoption assistance in the state of Georgia. This has been the case since March 2014 when Amerigroup was selected as George’s single care management organization. Here at Omega Pediatrics, you will find pediatricians that work with families in difficult situations, children, and parents in transition as well as foster care children.
Great Healthcare Benefits
Members of Amerigroup benefit from a large network of primary care providers to choose from for vision and dental care for children and adults, free round-trip rides, wellness visits and shots, low and no-cost medicines, specialist services and hospital stays, all with copays that range from $0.50 to $12.50. In addition, plan members receive extra benefits such as dental exam and cleaning every six months, vision care, 24-hour nurse helpline, case management services, free flu shots and a free weight management program. For pharmacy and prescription drugs, Amerigroup works with Express Scripts to get you the medicines you need, covering a wide range of prescriptions and many over-the-counter medicines.
Omega Pediatrics ensures that your access to your primary care provider is seamless, unhindered and sensitive to the needs of the family. Our doctor is one phone call away and that in itself is priceless. We also have some tools that help keep messages flowing between the doctor and the family such as patient portal and JamboDoc.
Healthcare Referrals With Amerigroup
For specialist care, your Primary Care Provider – PCP (your main doctor) can send you through a referral and set up a visit with that specialist. Female plan members don’t have to see the PCP for referrals to see an Obstetrician or Gynecologist. Also, the PCP does not have to be consulted before seeing a behavioral health provider for mental health, alcohol abuse or substance abuse services. A detailed member handbook is available and updated online in both English and Spanish and provides all the information needed for plan members in most situations. A toll-free number is also available for member services to provide answers to any question. These can be found on the Amerigroup website.
Personalized Healthcare With Amerigroup
Members of Planing for Healthy Babies receive more personalized care from Amerigroup with an initial exam as well as annual exams, pap smears and pelvic exams, pelvic exam, birth-control services, lab tests, emergency and urgent care, multivitamins as well as folic acid. Interpregnancy care members also receive certain dental services and medicines. Resource mother outreach members receive case management and referral services for an emergency situation as well as some education classes for mothers with low weight babies.
P4HB is a plan for uninsured women who are eligible for Medicaid or CHIP and have a family income within 200% of the federal poverty level. Interpregnancy care is for mothers that have given birth to a very low weight baby on or after January 1, 2011.
We remain the only clinic in Georgia that is open routinely for primary care up to 9 pm on all week days. We also are providing telemedicine facilities to blend into the DNA and culture of the City.
WE ACCEPT ALL INSURANCES
Omega Pediatrics Difference: At Omega Pediatrics in Roswell we understand the challenges that parents face when their children develop symptoms late in the day or after hours. Many pediatric offices rarely see patients after 4 pm however we are open every weekday up to 9 pm for both appointments and walk-ins. We also have telemedicine via evisits for our known patients. Our clinic is one of the easily accessible pediatric primary care clinics in Roswell and Alpharetta. We provide pediatric primary care to families in the North Fulton area and beyond, serving families that live in Milton, Sandy Springs, Johns Creek, Duluth, Cumming, Woodstock-Canton and beyond.
Immunizations and checkups after-hours: One advantage of switching to Omega Pediatrics for your child’s primary care is that you can bring your child in for immunization or annual checkup after regular business hours. We provide this service because we have passion for what we do and we want to be a comfortable and convenient service, not the ordinary pediatric doctor’s office.
