Do you take insurance?
We are not contracted with any insurance provider, and therefore require payment at time of service. However, we do provide an itemized invoice, or superbill, which patients can submit to their insurance company for reimbursement.
Will my insurance reimburse me?
If you have a PPO plan that provides out-of-network benefits, you will likely receive partial reimbursement according to the terms of your contract, usually ranging between 60-80% once your deductible has been met. HMOs typically do not reimburse for services by out-of-network providers. Since we are not a Medicare provider, you cannot submit your bill to Medicare for reimbursement.
Office visits do not include the cost of any recommended anthroposophic medicines, which generally range from $18-60 each. Many medicines are stocked in the office, but some will need to be special ordered or compounded by a pharmacy.
Sliding scale discounts of 20% are available on a limited basis. The discounts should be requested when the cost of a normal visit is not financially accessible and based on your level of income. These sliding scale discounts are available for new patient visits and for select follow-up visits, (but not for injections, packages, or extended visits) as well as for some IV infusion therapies. We offer these in a spirit of trust and communal well-being. The amount of discount being requested should be indicated as part of the “comments” entered when an appointment is scheduled on the practice website.
If you are not able to make your previously scheduled appointment, please let us know 48 hours in advance. If you fail to notify us in time we will charge you for the missed visit.
The federal Physician Payments Sunshine Act requires that detailed information about payment and other payments of value worth over ten dollars ($10) from manufacturers of drugs, medical devices, and biologics to physicians and teaching hospitals be made available to the public.
