Do you accept insurance?
We believe in empowering you to have the freedom of choice to determine the best treatment options for your medical needs and avoid treatment constraints placed by insurance companies. We are an “Insurance Free” practice and do not participate with any health insurance plans. However, we want to help you receive any insurance benefits you may be entitled to. After each visit, our office staff will provide you with a “superbill” with the appropriate diagnostic and procedure codes. The “superbill” enables you to submit a reimbursement claim to your insurance company for reimbursements. Our physicians at Rose Wellness are considered “out of network.” Most insurance companies offer some degree of reimbursement; however, you are encouraged to check with your insurance company about reimbursement prior to your appointment. Furthermore, if your insurance company needs further information, feel free to contact our office and our helpful staff will try to assist you.
Do you accept Medicare Insurance?
No, our doctors have opted out of Medicare. Please note that if you are a Medicare beneficiary, you will not be entitled to any reimbursement from Medicare. All costs for services rendered will be your sole responsibility. Prescriptions written and laboratory tests ordered will not be covered by Medicare.
What should I expect at the first visit?
For your initial visit with your integrative practitioner, plan on spending 1 to 2 hours. About 45-90 minutes of this time will be devoted to a thorough consultation. The other time will be used for checking in and out and any lab tests that may be ordered. During the consultation, your practitioner will review all of your medical records and discuss any previous diagnoses, treatments and medications you currently take. All of the information on the intake forms will be discussed in great detail and diagnostic testing may be ordered to help identify the root cause of your condition. Then, the practitioner will develop an individualized treatment plan based on the findings using a functional medicine approach. A significant portion of your visit will consist of patient education. Your practitioner will address and answer all of your health questions.
Should I bring my medical records to the first visit?
Pertinent previous records are helpful in preventing unnecessary testing and for a more productive medical visit. You may either -
- Scan and upload all your records through our secure patient portal
- Fax them to our office prior to your first visit
- Mail or drop copies of your records off to our center prior to your first visit. Please call us if you need any help with this. There may be an associated admin fee if we need to scan your records for you (above 5 pages).
What’s included in the cost for the first visit?
The visit fee covers the medical consultation, physical exam, and an in-depth review of intake forms and past records. Any additional testing and/or supplements are separate fees.
What other service fees should I know about?
Any recommended supplements and/or specialized tests ordered are additional fees. Many (but not all) of these tests are covered by insurance. (These tests include saliva hormone tests, stool tests for gut function, nutritional tests, food allergy/intolerance tests, based on individual need)
How often would I have follow up visits after the initial visit?
This depends on the individualized program the practitioner has planned with you and will be discussed with you by your practitioner.
