Please review the information below to learn more about the insurances we accept. If you have questions, please call our government-trained insurance counselors at 312.227.1230.

Important Information About the Plans Below

Determining healthcare coverage can be complicated for all involved. Please understand that this information is provided to assist you in understanding the broad set of insurance we accept. However, it does not replace the full policy information provided by your insurance company. This information does not represent a guarantee of coverage or applicability of copays, coinsurance and deductibles. The applicability of benefits for your child will be based on the exact benefits you have, subject to:

  • Eligibility determination on the date of service by the health plan
  • Medical necessity determination by the health plan
  • Prior authorization from the health plan, if any is required
  • Specific copay, coinsurance and deductibles as provided for in your specific benefit plan

For some subspecialty services such as mental health, rehabilitative services, ophthalmology and dental work, please call your insurance provider to make sure Lurie Children's is included in your network before making your appointment. While your general medical insurance plan may be listed below, Lurie Children's may not be part of your subspecialty services such as mental health, physical therapy, ophthalmology and dental work network.

We will do our best to help you understand the specific benefits you have, however, your cost will be based on how your insurer actually processes the claim for the services provided. We highly recommend that you check your specific benefit coverage before a visit.

Please note: Lurie Children's Primary Care - Town & Country Pediatrics may not be in all of the same plans listed on this web page. Please visit for the plans they participate in. 

Counselors Available to Help Answer Insurance Questions

We have certified application counselors available who are trained to provide fair, impartial and accurate information to help you select an insurance product and answer questions about your current plan. If you would like to talk with a counselor about your family’s healthcare insurance, please call 312.227.1230.
