Does your office take insurance for Root Cause & Functional Medicine Services?
We do not accept insurance or Medicare for our consulting services. Your case requires special attention, educational resources, communication, and time that is not covered by insurance companies.
However, we will provide you with a Superbill that you can submit to your insurance provider for out-of-network benefit reimbursement. You may also use your HSA or FSA account. Please check your with your insurance provider or Human Resources Department to find out.
Can I use my HSA or FSA account?
Are labs and supplements included?
We offer direct lab pricing which means that you pay the lab directly and get the best prices on recommended lab tests. The labs we work with offer insurance coverage for PPO plans as well as cash discounts.
Supplements are provided at a 25% discount through our online retailers and in-house medicinary.
How much should I budget for Functional Lab Tests?
On average, you should budget between $500-$1000 for functional lab tests.
Is the Essentials Program and Functional Lab Testing covered by insurance?
Upon request we will provide a Superbill for your appointments that you can submit to your insurance provider to receive out-of-network benefit reimbursement if that is a part of your plan. We do not guarantee reimbursement.
The functional lab tests we use are often covered by PPO insurance plans or can be purchased directly from the lab.
How does the lab testing work?
Functional labs tests are typically done at home with a kit and clear instructions we provide you with. Payment is made directly to the lab to ensure access to the lowest price possible.
PPO Insurance Plans, HSA, and FSA benefits may be used to cover labs costs depending on your program’s contract with the lab.
