Health forms are completed based on information abstracted by staff from your child’s chart. All forms are reviewed by a physician for completeness and accuracy. In some cases, forms mandate that only the physician may complete them. Insurance companies do not reimburse for form completion. Forms are completed on the basis of examinations conducted by physicians of The Children’s Medical Group (CMG)
It is the policy of CMG that our patient has a physical examination within the past 12 months in order to complete a form. If a physical examination has not occurred within the past 12 months, an appointment for a physical examination may be scheduled, at which time the form will be completed.
We do not charge a fee for forms attached to well baby checkups (under 36 months of age). It is necessary to charge for Non-CMG forms, which include but are not limited to college, camps, sports and the reproduction of our Physical/Immunization forms. At each yearly physical exam (3 years of age and above) you will receive a Physical/Immunization form from our office. This form may be accepted by schools, and other organizations. Please make a copy of this form for future use.
Turnaround time for form completion is 24 to 48 hours. Please be sure to fill out the patient’s name and date of birth to expedite this process. Remember that each of these forms has to be carefully reviewed by a physician before it is released.
Note – There is no longer a fee for the online form requests.AGREE
