Transfer Care

How to Transfer Medical Records

Please fax or mail a letter with your child's name, date of birth and name of practice transferring records to or log onto the Patient Portal and complete a Record Release Form.  Please include a telephone number where the office will call when the records are ready to advise you of the service fee. Once payment is received you can pick up the records directly from our office.

Transition to Adult Care

As you transition your care from Meadowbrook Pediatrics, P.C. to adult medicine, we recommend the following:

  • Make sure you are up to date with your wellness visit.

  • If you require ongoing prescriptions or specialty care, plan ahead so you will not risk running out of medication and you will maintain the best possible health during this transition time.  If you are moving or going away to college, we recommend you identify pharmacies in advance.

  • If you need assistance finding an adult doctor, call your insurance company for a list of participating providers in your area.  You can ask our doctors for a recommendation. 

  • Create your own account on our new patient portal and download your medical history and immunizations.  If you prefer, we will prepare your complete medical record for you to take to your new doctor.  To do this, please sign a release form.  In addition, for our patients who have complex medical needs, we will call your new doctor to facilitate the transition.

  • If you are 18 or older and wish for our office to be able to discuss your health information with your parents, please complete our HIPAA Authorization form

Understanding your insurance coverage:

  • Find out what type of insurance policy you have.

  • Will the insurance you have had in the past work if you go away to school in another state?  Is there an age limit on your coverage?

  • Can you go to a doctor of your choice?

  • What out-of-pocket expenses (not paid by your insurance) will there be?

  • Is there a health care facility nearby or on campus, such as a student health clinic?  Do you know their hours?  (Are they open in the evening, weekends, or holidays?)  What do you do if you are sick or injured and cannot wait until they are open?

  • What hospital in the area is on your insurance plan (in case of an emergency)?

We see patients up to the age of 18, so it is very important for you to find a primary care doctor in your area for your health care needs. In order to make this transition easier, we recommend that you find a health care provider who participates with your insurance plan and can meet your medical needs.  We thank you for your trust in us and wish you the best in your future.
