Payment is due in full at the end of your appointment.
- Cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted. Flex Spending or Health Savings Accounts are other payment options that you may use.
- Insurance Coverage: We are NOT in-network for any health insurance plans at this time. If you have out-of-network coverage, please let us know and we will give you a superbill that you can submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. Payment is still due in full at the time of your visit.
- Health Savings Accounts (HSA): If you have an HSA, Naturopathic consultations and prescribed supplements are allowable, tax-free expenditures. HSAs are a new option for health insurance and they have two parts. The first part is a health insurance policy that covers large hospital bills. The second part of the HSA is an investment account or retirement account from which you can withdraw money tax-free for medical care. Unused money accumulates with tax-free interest until retirement, when you can withdraw for any purpose and pay normal income taxes. We strongly urge you to look into an HSA as an alternative insurance choice. To find out more, please go to www.hsainsider.com.
- Flex Spending Accounts: Flexible Spending programs also allow for Naturopathic health care deductions. Check with your plan administrators. We recommend that everyone asks their insurance providers to allow coverage for natural healthcare expenses.

Note: When deciding to use natural medicine and nutrition to change your health for the better, having your naturopathic doctor support you along the way is essential and will assure that you receive the care and attention needed for optimal health. Most patients are advised to have regular follow-up visits every 4-6 weeks for the first 6-12 months of naturopathic treatment to allow the doctor to monitor progress, review lab results, and provide more elaborate recommendations according to patients' specific needs.
