Are supplements and labs included in the program?
Supplements and lab testing will be additional costs. The supplement protocols are personalized for your individual need and based on your lab test results and there is no way for us to know beforehand what you will need for your protocol. And, many of our patients continue with some core maintenance supplements on an ongoing basis.
Lab testing it’s not included because some people do not need to retest and others only need to retest certain markers. This actually saves you money.
What does the program cost?
We offer personalized care and protocols so you pay for just what you need, and nothing that you don’t. Your first appointment is a comprehensive wellness evaluation and the cost is $350. Follow-up appointments are $189. If it is determined that it is a good fit for you, we have treatment packages Available. These include a group of prepaid appointments at a discount, a 10% discount on supplements, additional support from your practitioner and staff.
Conventional insurance-based medicine is built around the concept of labeling you with a reimbursable diagnostic code (diagnosis) and then finding the medications or a procedure to match.
Why are Functional Medicine practices and testing not covered by insurance?
A functional medicine model of care works to address the root cause of imbalances/disease (DIS-EASE), considering the connection of all the various body systems, as well as the mind, lifestyle, and diet. The core of functional medicine is finding the what and the why, therefore simply operating in a diagnosis to medication model doesn’t fit with insurance-based practices.
In addition, if your practitioner is spending enough time with you (both in-person and afterward researching your unique case) to get to the root of your issue, using advanced testing that takes more time and knowledge to interpret, and then personalizing your treatment plan to include natural therapies and a customized diet plan, then it’s not covered by insurance.
This can be a good thing because this offers advanced testing and personalized care.
Yes, functional lab testing is an investment, but not an expense. Working to transform your lifestyle and health will continue to reward you over your lifetime and give you back more time and energy (and often money) in the long run.
