Before your baby is born

Check your insurance. Your baby is typically covered by the mother's insurance for the first 30 days of life. However, your insurance may have some differences. It's best to check and find out about your insurance's newborn policy.
Once Your Baby Is Born
Schedule an appointment Schedule to have your baby be seen within 2-3 days after discharge from the hospital
Review important information and prepare for the first visit Please take a look at our vaccine, FAQ, and New Patient pages to be better educated on important health information.
Enroll your baby with your insurance Your baby is typically covered by the mother's insurance within the first 30 days of life. However, it may take some processing time for your baby to be added to your insurance properly, so it is important to start that process as soon as possible.
For HMO members only
Please remember to pick Dr. Qing Dong (MD) as your baby’s Primary Care Physician (PCP) during the enrollment process.
If you belong to a medical group other than Brown & Toland Medical Group (such as Hill Physician Medical Group or Integrated Medical Group) and wish to enroll your baby with us (Brown & Toland Medical Group), please retroactively enroll your baby with Brown & Toland from date of birth and not 30 days after.
If you belong to Brown & Toland Medical Group (BTMG) but choose to enroll your baby with another medical group (such as Hill Physician Medical Group or Integrated Medical Group), please make the effective date with the new medical group after the last date of service from our office. DO NOT retroactively enroll your baby with the non-BTMG medical group to the baby’s date of birth.
If you fail to enroll your baby with a correct Primary Care Physician or a correct Medical Group, you will be responsible for payment of our services.
