Nemours Children's Services at Collaborating Hospitals

Servicios de Nemours en hospitales que colaboran


Nemours Services at Your Local Hospital

Nemours providers care for children in many settings, including collaborating hospitals. If your child is seen at a hospital that collaborates with Nemours in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware or Florida, they may be cared for by a Nemours provider.

Understanding Billing

After your child’s care, Nemours will bill your insurance if you have coverage. We may contact you to check your current insurance information. Depending on your coverage and how much your insurance pays, you may also receive a bill directly from Nemours.

Did you get a bill? Bills for care provided at collaborating hospitals are mailed from Nemours Children’s Health, P.O. Box 530253, Atlanta, GA.


New Baby? Add Them to Your Health Insurance

  • Contact your insurance as soon as possible. Call within the first 2 weeks of birth. Your insurance company will not automatically enroll your newborn on your plan to pay for care.
  • You don’t need to wait for your baby’s social security card or official birth certificate to add your newborn to your insurance or Medicaid.
  • Confirm the spelling of your child’s legal name on all documents — very important.
  • Ask about exclusions. State guidelines vary on coverage for a newborn’s first 30 days so confirm with your insurance what is needed for your newborn. Note: a grandparent’s insurance may not cover a grandchild (if the baby’s mother is on her parent’s insurance) so you may need other options.
  • Insurance through your workplace? Contact both your employer’s Human Resource department and insurance company(s) to get benefits for your newborn.

How to Enroll Your Child in Medicaid

Medicaid offers medical coverage for eligible children and families. Each state sets its own eligibility requirements and benefits.

Contact your state’s services office for more information:

Updates to Medicaid and CHIP

Over the next 12 months, states will be reviewing whether families still qualify for health insurance through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). If your child is covered by Medicaid or CHIP, update your personal information by calling your state’s Medicaid office, visiting online, or filling out a renewal form that is mailed to you.


Contact the Nemours Family Financial Advocates Program

If you can’t afford private health insurance, and you don’t qualify for state or federal government health care programs, you might be eligible for Nemours-funded financial support.

Contact our team to find if you qualify.

No Surprises Act

"Surprise billing" is an unexpected balance bill. This can happen when you can’t control who is involved in your care or your child’s care — such as when you or your child have an emergency, or when you schedule a visit at an in-network facility but are unexpectedly treated by an out-of-network provider.

Improving Children’s Health for Good

Nemours Children’s is one of the largest integrated pediatric health systems in the country. Everything we do — our medical care, research, education, and prevention and advocacy efforts — is focused on kids.

Our goal is to help children, everywhere, grow into healthy adults. To do this, we think of health as more than just medicine. Good health involves education, food, housing, family stability, emotional well-being, equity, justice and more. That’s why we go outside of our walls to reach kids where they live, learn and play. We’re here, beyond medicine.

We aim to give families the tools and confidence to make the best health choices.

Here's what you'll find on

  • Doctor-reviewed advice on hundreds of physical, emotional and behavioral topics — from before birth through the teen years.
  • Separate sections for parents, kids and teens, each created with your questions in mind.
  • Easy-to-follow articles, slideshows, videos and health tools designed to help families learn, grow and be their best.

A Guide for First Time Parents

You've gone through pregnancy, labor and delivery, and now you're ready to go home and begin life with your baby. Once home, though, you might feel like you have no idea what you're doing!

These tips can help even the most nervous first-time parents feel confident about caring for a newborn in no time.

Feeding Your Baby

Choosing whether to breastfeed or formula feed their baby is one of the biggest decisions expectant and new parents will make.

Health experts believe breast milk is the best nutritional choice for infants. But breastfeeding may not be possible for all women. For many, the decision to breastfeed or formula feed is based on their comfort level, lifestyle and specific medical situations.

Newborn Safety

Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden and unexplained death of a baby younger than 1 year old. Most SIDS deaths are associated with sleep, which is why it's sometimes still called "crib death."

I love my new baby, so why am I sad?

In the first few weeks of caring for a newborn, most new moms feel anxious, sad, frustrated, tired and overwhelmed. Sometimes known as the "baby blues," these feelings get better within a few weeks. But for some women, they are very strong or don't get better. Postpartum depression is when these feelings don't go away after about 2 weeks or make it hard for a woman to take care of her baby.
