When Medicaid and NC Health Choice changes in 2021, we will participate with NC Medicaid Direct, Wellcare and Carolina Complete Health/Centene. See our info page.
Unfortunately, we do not participate with Tricare Prime. We have attempted to arrange this for years but have been unable to come to an agreement with their contractor. If you would like Sandhills Pediatrics to be part of the Tricare Prime network, please call the (800) 444-5445 number listed on your insurance card and let the representative know you want Sandhills Pediatrics of NC to become part of Tricare Prime.
We are a Non-Network Participating Provider with Tricare Select (formerly Tricare Standard) which means all Well visits will be covered at 100% however Sick visits could be applied towards your
out of network Deductible and Cost Share.
If we do not participate with your insurance carrier, we will file your claim, but you will be expected to pay the charges in full or show us that you have satisfied your deductible for the calendar year.
