Below you will find the details about appointment pricing. Additional health care costs to consider when working with an ND are supplements, labs, and other forms of treatment. You will find some general pricing for some of those items below. At the Trial Appointment, I take the time to give you the best quote I can for labs and supplements so that you have a clear idea of what you will be paying in total.
Health Empowerment Program
Down payment: $200
Monthly payment: $300
At the Initial Evaluation, you will owe $200. You will then have 6 monthly payments of $300 that start 30 days after your Initial Evaluation.
Price includes appointments, email support, virtual visits, online resources, supplement discount, and all case management (prescription refills, medical records request, coordinating care, research, etc.). Price does NOT include labs and supplements.
If your case is more complex or intensive, you may require additional follow up visits during your first 6 months (rarely happens). Additional follow up visits are $200 per appointment during your first 6 months.
If your case requires more time, I offer a 6 month extension for $1200, paid in 6 monthly installments of $200. This includes 3 follow up visits and all additional support for 6 months.
A perk of the Health Empowerment Program is discounts on additional services:
35% off supplements through my online dispensary (I pass on my profit to you so you get the best discount)
Discounted or at cost vitamin injections (prices vary based on availability and pharmacy pricing)
CranioSacral Therapy $50 per session
Coaching $50 per session
I am an out-of-network provider, so services will be covered at your plan's out-of-network rate. To learn more about your coverage:
Call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card.
Ask if you have out-of-network coverage.
Find out if you have a deductible for out-of-network coverage and what percentage they will cover for out-of-network costs.
Find out if they will cover wellness visits, evaluation & management visits or both (this is important for me to know!).
Find out if they will cover labs ordered by out-of-network providers, if you have to meet a deductible, and what percentage they will cover.
For labs, ask if they have a preferred out-of-network lab.
Ask how you can submit your claim, making sure to get the correct forms and mailing address (they may tell you to have the doctor submit the claim, but you need to, so be sure to get all the info you need).
If they ask what a naturopathic doctor is, tell them a naturopathic doctor is a licensed primary care provider in the state of California.
You may also be able to use your HSA or FSA to pay for services. Contact your insurance company to learn more about how to use your money to pay for appointments, labs, and even prescribed supplements.
If you have out-of-network coverage, I will bill you at the time of service so you can maximize your reimbursement. You will be provided with a superbill with the necessary insurance codes and an invoice to submit to your insurance company. If your insurance company has additional forms, please bring those to the appointment. Make sure that the insurance company directs reimbursement to you and not to me.
You can cancel at anytime and just pay for services rendered. It’s that simple. Payment is determined by which appointments you have used and how much time has elapsed in your program.
You are responsible for paying the full cost of labs. I work very hard to provide you with the cheapest possible pricing for labs. Laboratory pricing varies significantly by lab and I take the time to compare so we get you the best price. Most doctors just use whatever lab is convenient to them and don’t consider the cost to their patient. I am willing to work with you, your insurance coverage, and your in-network doctor to get you the best pricing. Here are some of things I will do:
Provide you with access to labs at up to 90% off the retail pricing.
Write a letter to your in-network doctor to request labs for best coverage.
Provide you with codes so you can check insurance coverage.
Provide you insurance codes to submit to your insurance company to get reimbursed for cash labs.
At the Trial Appointment, I will give you a complete break down of pricing for the labs you may need.
Supplements typically cost $50-$150 a month for the first few months of treatment. Unlike many other health care professionals, I use supplements strategically with an understanding of physiology. What this means for you is that we can use fewer supplements for shorter duration and with greater results. I do my best to keep the expense for supplement as low as possible while still achieving therapeutic affect. And while I offer discounted access to physician-grade supplements, you are not required to buy your supplements through me.
