Unfortunately health insurance is not designed for health & wellness care. It is designed for disease management. As a consequence, functional medicine often does not fit the insurance model. Insurance plans are inconsistent with covering wellness services.
Insurance reimbursement is usually limited; often it’s not enough to cover a doctor’s expenses for running a clinic. Insurance billing is also a very time consuming process. We prefer to focus our time on helping our clients reach their health goals.
We provide transparent upfront pricing so you are informed about costs and do not receive surprise bills if your insurance does not cover a service.
When any practice or clinic accepts insurance, insurance then becomes your doctor by dictating your care based on what they decide to cover. We want to be thorough in our assessment and have the ability to run whatever tests are necessary to properly evaluate your condition.
Being out-of-network with insurance plans also makes it possible to offer extended visits, tele-health, advanced testing services and provide individualized recommendations because we are able to take the time to understand your unique situation.
Our services are FSA/HSA eligible.
