Please note: Not all physicians providing services at Dayton Children’s accept the same insurance plans as Dayton Children's and could bill separately for services provided. Some physicians who may provide professional services to patients at Dayton Children's are independent contractors. Since they are professional practitioners and not employees or agents of the hospital, they may not always participate in the same plans as the hospital. The groups could bill separately for their services and authorization would be needed for payment to be made directly to such providers. Please check with physicians' offices to be sure a particular plan is accepted.
