Payment for Services Our policy is to receive payment at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
We are not in-network with any insurance plans.
The health insurance environment has recently become cumbersome and time-consuming, with relentless requests for out-of-network physicians to write medical necessity letters and provide reasoning behind the recommendations of natural treatment vs pharmaceutical drug treatment. We no longer honor those requests. We will provide a receipt for the office visit upon request, with the understanding that insurance denials are becoming standard. The receipt is useful for a Flex Spending Account, Health Savings Account or for your income tax records.
As a courtesy, our office will provide the CPT procedure codes and your ICD-10 diagnosis codes for lab testing on your lab requisition forms. We do not write letters of medical necessity for lab testing. In general, insurance coverage from PPO plans remains excellent.
We do not bill Medicare, and Medicare will not provide reimbursement to patients because we have chosen to "opt-out" of the Medicare program.
Scheduled appointment cancellations
Appointments cancelled within 72 hours of the scheduled appointment time are charged a fee of $150.
Important note: We require all messages to be brief and concise. Generally, we monitor emails Monday through Friday, noon to 3 PM. We do everything possible to respond within 48 hours. The use of email to communicate with your doctor is not meant for serious/urgent problems or emergencies. If your problem is urgent or could be an emergency, go to the nearest emergency room or call 911. If you need medical attention but are not in an emergency situation, contact your Primary Care Physician.
The intelligent blend of conventional and natural approaches to wellness.
