CHADIS? Is this spam? If your child has had a well exam in the past month, you’ve probably received an email from CHADIS and have wondered if it’s spam…. It is not. CHADIS is an online library of age-appropriate screenings. These screenings are a standard of care and are recommended by the AAP and most insurance companies. The screenings help your doctor to diagnose and manage health, behavioral, developmental, and emotional issues. CHADIS enables parents to fully express their concerns and “visit priorities” prior to the visit. This allows for more quality time during the well-child visit as it ensures these issues are appropriately addressed. In some cases, CHADIS may help detect issues early before the signs are present. This is an invaluable tool, please make sure you complete it
Is CHADIS billed to insurance?
Yes, any and all CHADIS screenings will be billed to your insurance company. If they are not a covered service under your insurance plan you will only be billed for the value of one screening even if, based on age, multiple screenings are completed. The maximum you would be billed is $25.00.
How does CHADIS work?
The parent will be given a user name. The user name is the email that we have on file*. Each child in the family will be attached to that user name. The day before a scheduled visit, you will receive an email, from CHADIS, letting you know that there are screenings ready for you to complete. Depending on the child’s age, it may only be the visit priorities. You will also receive a text message from us, reminding you to complete CHADIS before the visit.

* In some cases, a different user name will be needed. Your user name, if different than email, will be communicated to you.

The Big picture and the Small Details
The economy and society are opening up, and it can be very confusing to know what we should and should not be doing to keep ourselves safe right now. The good news is that we are in a much better place regarding COVID 19 than we were in March. We have managed to decrease the numbers of COVID infections effectively. The “not so good news” is that we only managed to be so successful due to social distancing. [Read more…] about The Do’s and Don’ts of Social Distancing
Our very own Dr Agoglia and her daughter Becca Cohen, a college freshman, have been busy writing a fun, educational story about a girl and her Teddy bear and their learning experience during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
It’s the first book they have written and they are excited to share it with you! We would love for you to read it and let us know how you like it.
Hope you enjoy it!
Towards the end of the month, CT will slowly start a staged reopening. Before each new stage is
realized, the state will have to reach certain standards in regards to the COVID virus. Some individuals
are overjoyed that they will soon be able to sit in a restaurant or enter a retail store. Other individuals
are filled with a sense of anxiety and dread as this new phase starts. It is easier to adhere to certain
guidelines when rules are very black and white. The staged opening presents a gray area for many
people as to how they should act and what they should be thinking. [Read more…] about What should your plan be as society slowly reopens?
