                          The staff of Children’s understands that parents’ first
                   concern is the health and well-being of their children, and
                   when necessary, the hospital will assist families in securing
                   the resources needed to meet their financial obligations to the
                   hospital. Parents should be prepared to provide the name,
                   address and phone number of their insurance company. The
                   Financial Information Center will assist families in making

                   the medical record, the referring physician must submit a
                   written request to the director of Health Information
                   Management, along with a signed authorization for release
                   of information from the patient’s parent or legal guardian.

Referrals and Admissions
       Any physician, health professional, or healthcare agency
may refer a patient to Children’s. Patients are admitted to
Children’s through the ambulatory clinics, the Emergency
Department, or by direct referral. Referring physicians have
complete access to the clinical progress of their patients and
are encouraged to visit their patients during their hospital stay.
       Children’s also has a Hospitalist Medicine Program.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in caring for inpa-
tients, regardless of who is their referring physician. Under a
more traditional model of patient care, physicians maintain
their private practices and follow their own patients who are
admitted to the hospital. By specializing in inpatient care,
hospitalists can become more skilled and efficient in acute care,
which ultimately leads to improved care for Children’s patients.
       Inquiries about admitting a patient should be directed
to the full-time staff physician responsible for the patient’s
care or to the medical or surgical residents who are on duty
24 hours a day. Referring physicians may, at any time, call
Children’s emergency referral phone number, 202-476-LIFE.
       At Children’s, we believe services should be accessible to
all persons regardless of handicaps or disabilities. Sign and
foreign language interpreters, TTY phones, and handicap
parking spaces on level P-1 are some of the services provided.
Physicians are asked to call in advance if their patients require
assistance in coming to the hospital.

Social Work
       Clinical social workers are specially trained and licensed
to counsel families coping with illness or injury, assess patient
and family psychosocial needs, provide crisis and therapeutic
counseling, assist with transitioning to home, and educate and
link families to community resources.
                                                    202-476-3070

CHILD HEALTH ADVOCACY INSTITUTE

There are three core groups within Children’s that assist the
CHAI in the stewardship of advocacy:
      • Committee on Advocacy and Public Policy—a multi-
         disciplinary body, composed of community leaders
         and change agents, who guides strategic public policy
         positions, and links the CHAI to Children’s governance
         structure.
      • Child Health Center Board—a longstanding board
         charged with improving health care for children in
         the District through fundraising and volunteerism;
         founding sponsor of the future Child Health Data Lab.
      • CHAI Campaign Leadership Council—board and
         community leaders who have committed to support
         the growth of the CHAI through philanthropic plan-
         ning and donor recruitment.

GASTROENTEROLOGY, HEPATOLOGY, & NUTRITION
Services:
Members of the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology,
and Nutrition integrate their activities with other physicians,
nurses, dietitians, and pharmacists to ensure the full spectrum
of GI consultations, procedures, and nutrition support for
inpatients and outpatients. Investigations include those of
intestinal function and structure, employing biochemical,
endoscopic and manometric techniques.

The intestinal liver failure program is designed to provide
management including evaluation and transplant to be done
in conjunction with our colleagues at Georgetown University
Hospital.

Nutrition support services is responsible for monitoring
the care of children who require enteral tube feeding and
intravenous nutrition. A multidisciplinary infant feeding
disorders team uses a family-centered approach to assess
and manage toddlers with feeding difficulties.

Parents are welcome to call for appointments; however,
referring physicians may wish to directly contact a GI
attending regarding emergency cases. Previous X-rays
and growth charts are extremely helpful in completion
of an initial consultation.

HEMATOLOGY
The Division of Hematology provides specialized inpatient and
outpatient care for pediatric patients with a wide variety of
bone marrow failure syndromes and bleeding, histiocyte,
platelet, red blood cell, and thrombotic disorders. A multi-
disciplinary team of physicians, nurses, physician assistants,
nurse practitioners, psychologists, social workers, and physical
therapists provides the best care for children with blood
disorders.

Patients with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, and other
bleeding and clotting disorders are followed through the
Comprehensive Hemophilia and Thrombosis Diagnosis
Treatment Center.

The Sickle Cell Disease Program follows more than 1,000
children, making it one of the largest pediatric sickle cell
programs in the country. Through blood transfusions and new
drug treatments, Children’s specialists ease the disease’s effects
and have even cured the disease through hematopoietic stem
cell transplantation (HSCT).

The Division of Hematology is dedicated to finding new and
more effective therapies by participating in several clinical
trials sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.

As part of the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders,
hematology patients have access to the Patient and Family
Support Program, which provides comprehensive mental
health and psychosocial services and helpful resources for
all patients treated by the center, as well as patients’ parents
and siblings.

Comprehensive Spine Program
The Division of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine at
Children’s National Medical Center has made continuous strides
to provide outstanding care through its Comprehensive Spine
Program. Four pediatric orthopaedic surgeons and three pediatric
neurosurgeons provide diagnostic and treatment services for children
and teens with conditions including idiopathic scoliosis, congenital
spine deformities, spinal trauma, and spinal tumors. Since 2004, we
have doubled the number of spine surgeries performed at Children’s.

Our surgeons are backed by an experienced team including physician
assistants, nurses, a social worker, and a surgery coordinator who
walks our families through the process of planning surgery and
handling insurance approvals.

Children’s is a leader in the use of the art tools such as intraoperative
MRI and CT imaging to assist surgeons during complex procedures,
as well as research aimed at improving the care of children with
spinal disorders.

Children’s Sports Medicine Program includes the area’s
only board-certified sports medicine pediatrician, an orthopaedic
surgeon and an athletic trainer. Children’s cares for the athletes at
George Washington University and local high schools in MD, DC
and VA. The Sports Medicine program at Children’s can diagnose
and treat the following types of injuries:
      • Acute musculoskeletal injuries (knee, shoulder, ankle, back,
        neck, foot, hand injuries/sprains)
      • Overuse injuries (tendonitis, Little League elbow or
        shoulder, etc.)
      • ACL or ligament injuries
      • Stress fractures
      • Concussions
      • Burners/Stingers

                 MANAGED CARE PLANS CONTRACTING WITH
                 CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL AND SPECIALISTS
                 Children’s is contracted with the managed care plans noted
                 below. Generally these contracts provide for Children’s
                 participation for the full scope of services offered by the
                 Hospital and Children’s physicians. In some cases, however,
                 managed care plans have implemented separate networks of
                 providers to deliver particular types of services, such as
                 behavioral. Under this type of arrangement, referred to as a
                 “carve-out,” not all providers who are affiliated with Children’s
                 are participating providers in the carve-out network. The
                 following pages identify by department the carve-out
                 arrangements used by specific managed care plans.
                 Information is provided on whether Children’s is currently
                 a participating provider in the particular arrangement.

                 Please note that such carve-out arrangements are often
                 limited to particular products offered by the managed care
                 organization, such as the HMO. Referring physicians and plan
                 enrollees are encouraged to discuss the scope of the carve-out
                 with the plans’ provider and member services representatives
                 if there are questions about whether a carve-out applies to a
                 particular member. In cases where Children’s is not
                 participating in a particular carve-out network, it may be
                 possible to obtain special authorization for services if a
                 member’s needs cannot be accommodated within that
                 network. While every effort has been made to present
                 comprehensive information on the specialized arrangements,
                 these types of arrangements are subject to change.

MANAGED CARE PLANS CONTRACTING WITH CHILDREN’S
AND SPECIALISTS

Plans for which Children’s is not a designated participating provider may authorize services
at Children’s on an exception basis when specialized pediatric expertise is not available within their
network of contracted providers.
In addition, members enrolled in PPO or Point of Service products generally have the option
to access benefits through non-participating providers with greater out-of-pocket expense.
The following pages identify by department the carve-out arrangements used by specific
managed care plans. The third column, entitled Children’s Status, identifies whether Children’s is
currently a participating provider under carve-out arrangements.


Plan                             Carve-Out                             Children’s Status
Laboratory Medicine
Note: Many HMOs have carve-out arrangements for outpatient laboratory services.
The hospital and all Children’s Outpatient Centers except Frederick are drawing stations
and stat sites for Lab Corp. The Hospital is a drawing site for Quest.

Ophthalmology
Cigna                              Advantica EyeCare (Allied)                 Participating
Note: The carve-out arrangements noted above are for medical services. Many managed
care plans have designated providers for routine eye care, such as vision testing and
refractions. These are not noted as Children’s does not provide routine eye care. Refer to
plan directories for information on routine vision services.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Medicine
Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy are coordinated through this
department. The following carve-outs apply for these therapy services.

*CareFirst
*Note: Children’s does not have a separate professional services agreement with CareFirst
for therapy services. Therapy services provided at Children’s for individuals covered by the
Federal Employee Plan are processed under provisions for hospital benefits. Children’s is
not considered a participating provider for Blue Choice.

CHILDREN’S RESEARCH INSTITUTE

                                      The Children’s Research Institute (CRI), the research arm of
                                      Children’s National Medical Center, was established in 1989.
                                      Research has been a part of Children’s mission since 1947.
                                      The Institute was founded on the belief that diseases that
                                      affect children pose biological puzzles that can be solved
                                      when enough information becomes available. Such advances
                                      occur most often when basic and clinical research interact.
                                      This is the focus of CRI — to bring the laboratory and bedside
                                      closer together.
