Insurances we do accept are BCBS (all plans except Blue Value and Blue Local), Aetna (except for the Limited Network of Wake Health, Duke Health, Cone Health), Cigna, Medcost (except for the Limited Network of Wake Exclusive Network), and Coventry.
We have opted out of Medicare and we do not accept Medicaid or certain Tricare policies. We have elected to not have the government dictate how we should care for patients and therefore are unable to accept these policies.
We are out of Network with United Health Care which means you would pay all costs out of pocket and then you can file with UHC insurance directly.
For patients who are not covered by insurance or as a result of the above policies, we offer a private contract for a fee of $360 per hour or $6 per minute. The average charge for the first visit is $600-$960. This is NOT reimbursable by Medicare or Medicaid.
We are problem focused so will not be taking over your primary care. We suggest that you maintain your PCP for routine medical care and sick visits. Due to demand, we are unable to take on every patient with interest in our practice. We take on cases that include symptoms, diseases and challenges that we feel we can most effectively treat based upon our strengths and are unable to take on new patients who are primarily seeking wellness or primary care with an integrative approach.
All patients are required to join our patient portal for $60 a year and the payment for that is due on your first visit. The charge will recur every year on the anniversary of your first visit.
Every patient is required to keep a credit or debit card on file. Our credit card processor is nested in a banking center, so its security greatly exceeds a typical medical office. Outstanding balances will be automatically charged to the card on file at 90 days. Integrative care, such as ours is uncommon and most integrative practices are cash only.
We are a hybrid practice, accepting insurances but also acknowledging that there are out of pocket expenses. We are happy to discuss expenses with you prior to treatment. If you have a high deductible plan, you can utilize our cash prices for our labs run through LabCorp, otherwise the labs will be filed through Insurance. There are many different tests, that are not available at your PCP's office and not covered by Insurance. We consider them medically necessary for optimal treatment of our patients, but Insurance often does not. These tests do qualify for coverage for HSA's and FSA's, however.
There is a $7.50 Form Fee and a $36 Return Check Fee.
