"Natural health care is a system of natural medicine based on the healing power of nature. It is a holistic natural medicine system that strives to find the cause of disease by understanding the patient as a totality of body, mind, and spirit. Finding a Holistic Doctor that accepts insurance can be tricky because accepting insurance limits the ability to fully help patients. Over the years we have found that insurance mandates overflows of patients, limited time with the patient, and restrictive treatments that stifle healthcare. So, we boldly decided to drop insurance at the beginning of healthcare reform in pursuit of provided quality healthcare. I am often asked the question, are Naturopathic Doctors covered by Health Insurance, and the answer is yes, if the provider agrees. The provider must be willing to comply with the insurance company mandates, therefore restricting their healthcare service. See my video on the role of health insurance. Looking for Holistic Doctors near me that take insurance? We believe that everyone should be able to afford natural health care, so we have became a concierge practice to accommodate the growing need for affordable natural health care options. Our concierge practice charges a flat annual case for all services provided to you. Each program is custom designed exclusively for you. We believe it is important to give people incentive for their long-term commitment to living naturally. Therefore, the longer program time that you choose, the more affordable your natural health care is for you. The role of a naturopathic doctor is to educate you on how the body works and how to heal the body step by step. As you learn, follow directions, and heal you need our practice less and less so you pay less and less. If you are looking for a holistic near me that takes insurance look forward to long wait times, spending 2-3 hours in the waiting room as many times providers have to double book to manage the insurance billing. Look forward to the insurance companies not paying your provider their worth, and your provider being over worked and unpaid. Not to mention the insurance mandates 15 mins doctors appointments. We simply do not see that it is within the health of the provider and the practice member. We choose to value ourselves and choose to support, and care about our practice members and guests. If the deciding factor to try our practice is mainly based on looking for holistic doctors near me that takes insurance we may not be a good fit because we choose to put people over insurance billing. We found that billing insurance costed the practice members more than paying out of pocket. The lack of transparency in insurance billing challenged the core values of our practice which includes responsibility and integrity just to name a couple. If you are looking to see if there are Naturopathic Doctors covered by health insurance it is highly unlikely that the provider fully understands the role of health insurance. Health insurance was originally designed for catastrophic measures, such as surgery, etc. things that would provide a great burden on the person financially. It is not an option to manage chronic disease or even prevent disease. Much like your car insurance, you are still responsible for routine maintenance, upgrades to the car, as well as repairs. The body is no different, so health insurance is designed the same way. It is designed for accidents and those healthcare items that require large expenses such as having a baby or diagnostic tests. We do accept PPO insurances for labs and many of our Advanced Functional Medicine diagnostic tests."
