RE: NEED URGENT ACTION--Need your help!
Dear parents and caregivers,
It is a privilege to provide care for your children, especially in these stressful times. As your child’s *medical home*, we thank you for trusting us with your family’s health care, and bringing your child for a well-visit this year (AHCCCS 10/01/19-09/30/20).
If you have received this text, your child (or at least one of your children) is NOT assigned as “PCP” (primary care providers) to one of our Callie Pediatrics providers. It is essential that your AHCCCS plan ( United Healthcare Community, Banner-University Family Plan, or Arizona Complete Health) know that you have chosen Callie Pediatrics as your PCP/medical home and that s/he be assigned to one of our providers: Albert A. Callie, MD, Erin Cowan, CPNP, or Michelle Foth, MD (at this time, during COVID-19, Dr. Callie, Sr is not seeing patients at the office).
