  • Quiz: Child well-being and immunizations

Checking in: Questions to ask at your child's well visits

Welcoming a new child is exciting. But caring for a baby can also leave you with a lot of unanswered questions. Your baby’s care provider can help. From giving immunizations to offering you feeding tips, care providers help your baby grow up healthy. That includes making sure you have the answers and support you need.

A note about immunizations at child well visits

Your child’s care provider will give your baby immunizations during most visits. Immunizations work better and reduce the risk of infection by working with the body's natural defenses to help safely develop immunity to disease. Keeping your baby on schedule is also key, so don’t forget to schedule visits on time.

Learn what to ask at your child's well visits

Preparation is key for a stress-free appointment. Your baby should go to at least 8 child well visits before they are 15 months old. Knowing what will happen at each of these appointments can help you get ready. Knowing what to pack for your visit and questions you might ask when you get there can make your life easier. Watch the videos and view the questions below to get ready for each early child well visit.

Dr. Mike Frostad

Meet Dr. Mike

Dr. Katie Hryniewicz

If your child is experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

During the well-child checks, our pediatricians will evaluate your child’s development, behavior and general well-being. Palouse Pediatrics uses CHADIS, an online system that delivers questionnaires that determine if your child is developing on schedule and without health risks. Our receptionist will send your child’s questionnaire a week before the appointment to fill out. If you forget to fill out the questionnaire please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out your questionnaire upon check-in. Using CHADIS before the visit will help your pediatrician take better care of your child.

We also will address safety in the home, optimal nutrition, toilet training, and environmental concerns.  Our pediatricians will also determine if any vaccinations are recommended during your visit with our office. During these visits our pediatricians encourage parents to ask questions about any concerns that they are noticing in their child.

Here is our recommended schedule of well child visits:

  • 3 years and up we recommend a well check every year

Palouse Pediatrics is dedicated to the well-being of all children, adolescents and young adults. Vaccinations are the cornerstones of health and wellness.

Depending on the type of lab testing your child will be getting done, it may be necessary for your child to plan ahead to ensure that they are able to fast if necessary. Fasting for the purpose of a lab draw means that your child does not eat or drink anything but water 12 hours prior to their blood draw.

We have an on-call pediatrician available 24/7. If your child is experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

For established Palouse Pediatrics patients who need to speak with the on-call pediatrician, please call our main office number and listen to the message to find out how to be connected. The on-call pediatrician should not be called for scheduling needs or prescription refill requests. Please call back during our normal business hours to put in these requests through our reception staff.

Unfortunately, if your child is not an established patient at Palouse Pediatrics, we are unable to provide medical advice over the phone. We recommend you contact your child's primary care provider.

We understand that there are many questions when it comes to dealing with insurance companies and medical bills.

We hope this Health Insurance 101 will be helpful information, however if you have any questions do not hesitate to call our billing department at 509-332-6139.

Please bring your most current insurance card at the time of service as this information needs to be updated to provide you with the most efficient billing service. If your insurance has a co-pay then we will collect that upon check in. Palouse Pediatrics is a preferred provider for the following insurance companies:

  • Blue Cross of Idaho
  • Idaho & Washington Medicaid plans
  • First Choice Health Network (FCHN)
  • GEHA (Aetna)
  • Kaiser Health Insurance
  • Health Net Federal Services (HNFS)
  • L&I/Crime Victims
  • Medicare WA
  • Regence of ID
  • RR Medicare
  • TriWest VAPC3
  • United Health Care

Below we have listed the answers to most commonly asked questions. If you need further assistance, please contact our billing office 509-332-6139.

Q:   What if my child is covered under an insurance company that is NOT listed. Can they still be seen?

A: YES! We are willing to bill any insurance for you. However we are not contracted with all of the insurance companies. This means that you may be responsible for more of your bill. We do expect $75 dollars upon check in and the remaining at the end of the visit.

Q:   Do you offer a discount for patients who pay in full at time of service?

A: YES! We offer 20% discount for patients who   do not   have health insurance coverage and pay their bill at time of service. We do expect $75 dollars upon check in and the remaining at the end of the visit. Payments are available if you are unable to pay in full, however the discount will   not   be applied.

Q:   Why was I charged for another office visit when my child was in for a wellness check?

A: There may be times when a child needs a service that is not considered preventative on the same day as well child visit. If a child is not well or a problem is found or needs to be addressed during the checkup, the physician may need to provide an additional office visit service (called a sick visit) to care for the child. This is a different service and is billed to your health plan in addition to the preventative services provided that day. If you have a co-payment for the office visits or coinsurance or deductible amounts that you must pay before your health plan pays for these services, our office will charge you these amounts.

Q:   How do I know for sure if our doctors are covered under my insurance plan?

A: The best way to know for sure is to call your insurance and ask them directly. We are contracted with many insurance companies so there should be no problem. However, there are times we may choose not to renew our contracts with an insurance company.

Q:   I received a statement from you showing that my insurance company has not been billed. Why is that?

A: Most often it is because we did not receive your current insurance information while you were in the office. If you did give us a copy of your card and you’re still receiving a bill, it may be because we failed to link your information to the visit properly. Either way, if you let us know, we can easily correct the problem.

Q:   Both parents carry insurance for their child, which policy is the primary?

A: All insurance companies follow the birthday rule. The parent whose birthday falls first in the year will be considered the primary insured. We are happy to bill both your primary and secondary insurance.

Glossary of Billing and Insurance Terms:

  • Applied to deductible:   a portion of your bill, as defined by your insurance company, that you owe your provider
  • Co-insurance:   the amount you must pay after your insurance has paid its portion, according to your Benefit contract. In many health plans, patients must pay for a portion of the allowed amount. For instance, if the plan pays 70% of he allowed amount, the patient pays the remaining 30%. If your plan is a preferred provider organization or other narrow network type of product, your co-insurance costs may be lower if you use the services of an in-network provider on the plan’s preferred provider list.
  • Co-Payment (co-pay):   A predetermined, fixed fee that you pay at the time of service. Copayment amounts vary by service and may vary depending on which provider (in-network, out-of-network, or provider type) you use. The amounts also may vary based on the type of service you are receiving (for instance, primary care vs. specialty care).
  • Deductibles : The amount a patient pays before the insurance plan pays anything. In most cases, deductibles apply per person per calendar year. With preferred provider organizations (PPOs), deductibles usually apply to all services, including lab tests, hospital stays and clinic or doctor’s office visits.
  • Health maintenance organization (HMO):   Health maintenance organization (HMO) (refers to health insurance)—these health insurance plans require enrolled patients to receive call their care from a specific group of providers (except for some emergency care). The plan may require your primary care doctor to make a referral before you can receive specialty care. An HMO may require you to live or work in its service area to be eligible for coverage. HMO’s often provide integrated care and focus on prevention and wellness.
  • In-network:   A group of doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers preferred and contracted with your insurance company. You will receive maximum benefits if you receive care from in-network providers. Depending on your insurance plan, your benefits may be reduced or not covered at all if your receive services from providers who are not in network.

Thank you for choosing Palouse Pediatrics for your healthcare needs. You have entrusted us with your most valuable asset, your child’s health. We strive to provide quality care in accordance with your wishes.

As a new patient, we ask that you contact our office first, so that our reception staff is able to build your child a profile. Before you place a call to our office, be sure to have your child’s health insurance card in front of you as we will need the policy number, group number and any copay amount in order to complete the profile.  If you don’t have health insurance or your child has not been added to a health plan yet, no problem, just mention that to the reception staff and they will help you.

Our office is contracted with all the Medicaid plans offered by Idaho and Washington State. In order to start seeing our practice, we will need to be listed as the primary care provider on the card.

To pay your bill online please visit our Financial Services webpage .

We ask that you give us five business days to process your child’s prescription refill request. This allows the physician who prescribed the medication to review your child’s record and call if there are any questions. In order to expedite your request, please contact your pharmacy to have them fax us a request.

All controlled substance prescriptions do need to be called in each month.  Please give the physician five business days to process your child’s refill request. These prescriptions are not available to pick up in the office, they will be electronically sent to your pharmacy.

kaiser well baby visits schedule

Ages & Stages

1st week checkup checklist: 3 to 5 days old.

Congratulations on the birth of your new baby! For many parents, the first visit to the pediatrician is also their newborn's first trip away from home. Don't worry—we've got you covered with what questions to ask, what paperwork to remember, and what to expect at your baby's first checkup.

✅ What to bring

Hospital paperwork—including information about your baby's discharge weight or complications during pregnancy or birth.

✅ Immunizations

Your baby will receive the Hepatitis B (HBV) vaccine if they did not receive it in the hospital. (The AAP recommends newborns receive their first dose of vaccine within the first 24 hours of birth.)

✅ Screenings

Your pediatrician will review the results of two screenings that all babies receive in the hospital for hearing and blood . Based on the results, your pediatrician may rescreen or recommend a referral to a specialist.

✅Development & feeding

Your doctor will measure and weigh your baby to make sure their growth is on track, observe their development and behavior, and perform a physical exam.

Questions your pediatrician may ask

Does your baby receive breast milk , iron-fortified formula, or a combination of the two?

If breastfeeding, do you have support from a lactation consultant? The first few weeks of breastfeeding can be an adjustment, but try to stick with it ! (The AAP recommends breastfeeding as the sole source of nutrition for your baby for about 6 months. When you add solid foods to your baby's diet, continue to breastfeed as long as you and your baby desire, for 2 years or beyond.

Is your breastfed baby getting a vitamin D supplement ? (The AAP recommends 400 IU of supplemental vitamin D daily, beginning in the first few days of life.)

Questions you may have

How many diapers should I be changing?

How long is formula good after making it?

How long is breast milk good after pumping it?

How well can my baby see ?

❓ Did you know

Your baby can see you best if you are face-to-face about 6 to 10 inches away. Learn more about newborn eyesight.

How are you feeling? If you are having postpartum issues with breastfeeding, anxiety, or sadness , or anything else, please feel free to discuss it with your baby's pediatrician.

Where does your baby sleep? Here are great tips from the AAP on keeping your sleeping baby safe .

Are my baby's umbilical cord and/or circumcision healing as expected?

Am I preparing bottles safely?

When is it safe to bathe my baby?

What should I do if my baby has a fever ? Can you show me how to safely use a rectal thermometer to take my baby's temperature?

✅ Communication

Never hesitate to call your pediatrician's office with any questions or concerns—even if you know the office is closed. If your pediatrician is unable to see you but believes your baby should be examined, they will advise you on the most appropriate place for your baby to receive care and how quickly your baby should be seen.
