How much will a visit cost?
At the time of service, we will verify your insurance and estimate your URGENT CARE patient responsibility. This may be the form of a copay, towards your deductible or co-insurance. We will collect this estimate at check-in. The remainder of the charges are submitted to your insurance. The remainder of the charges are submitted to your insurance. Benefits are subject to all contract limitations and the member’s status on the date of service. Every effort is made to collect member’s copay and deductibles based on urgent care benefits. Accumulated amounts may chance as claims are processed by your insurance.
For uninsured patients, payment is due at time of service. A substantial discount will be offered to Self Pay Patients.

Will my pediatrician know about this visit?
A summary of the evaluation, diagnosis and care provided is faxed to your pediatrician’s office immediately after your visit. If your child’s condition requires a call to the pediatrician for consultation or follow up, then we will call while your child is in the office.
What if my child needs to be admitted to the hospital?
Night Lite Pediatrics will call your physician and arrange for your child to be admitted to the hospital through our hospitalist group CFPICS (Central Florida Pediatric Intensive Care Specialists).
Do I need a referral from my doctor’s office?
Because we are an urgent care facility, no referral is necessary to be seen in the clinic.
