What Type of Diagnostic Testing will Students Receive?
Tests include EKGs and echocardiograms to detect heart abnormalities that can cause sudden cardiac arrest and non-invasive vascular ultrasound to identify vascular conditions common to athletes (such as blood clots). Qualified sonographers (techs) perform the tests professionally and maintain the privacy of each student. Board certified reading cardiologists, pediatric cardiologists, and radiologists interpret test results and report detailed findings.
What is the Cost of the Testing?
There are no upfront costs for the testing. Wimbledon Health Partners will bill your health insurance for the services provided, accepting what your carrier deems usual and customary (we do not balance bill!). As required by law, WHP will bill for the deductible or co-insurance, if applicable. If a balance is due, WHP can offer a payment plan or can eliminate the balance entirely for those in genuine hardship situations. There are a number of circumstances that qualify you for a waiver, including saving for college. Click Here for a Waiver of Financial Responsibility
Please be aware that if you have a Health Savings Account (HSA), Flexible Spending Account (FSA), or Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), funds may be deducted automatically if a balance is due, even if a waiver has been submitted. Please check with your insurance carrier, as each policy is different.
We encourage you to call WHP Customer Relations at (855) 200-8262 to verify your health benefits prior to testing. If you do not have health insurance, please call us to discuss options. Our priority is the health and safety of your child!
