We are considered an out of network provider. New patient visits for functional medicine are usually an hour and follow up visits are 20-45 minutes. Insurance tends to restrict the patient’s time with the doctor and limit average time spent to 15 minutes or less. We do not take this approach and are able to spend the time necessary with the patient to properly diagnose and treat patients.
We are a self-pay practice and currently do not accept insurance. We are considered an out-of-network provider. However, a super bill can be provided and given to the patient within 48 hours of the appointment. Depending on the insurance, they may do full or partial reimbursements for the appointments and labs. We can not guarantee any reimbursement from insurance.
Please note that as an out of network provider, we do not perform insurance prior authorizations. There are certain compounded medications that might not be covered. Always check with us for self-pay rates if you have a high deductible or uncovered services to help save you money.
