The Major Medical Insurance industry is based on a “sickness” model of care, and many of our services differ from that model radically. Allowing a failing system with different values to dictate the actions of our clinic, and effectively tie our hands when it comes to providing appropriate and complete patient care is not an option. Simply put, if you want different care, you have to play by different rules.
To that end, our office does not directly submit any insurance claims for Functional Medicine services. We can, however, provide you with the most appropriate codes available, which you can submit to your own insurance carrier for potential reimbursement for your expenses. Note: the codes available are general wellness and nutrition codes, and are not “Functional Medicine” specific. Our office can not guarantee reimbursement of any kind; please contact your insurance carrier for further information on reimbursement. Also, our Doctors and staff are ready to provide service directly to our patients; however, other than providing the appropriately coded invoices, they do not get involved with any other insurance processing.
If you would like our office to provide you with a “coded” invoice, please notify the front desk BEFORE your session begins. Once your daily paperwork is processed, it can not be changed.
