Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take insurance?

No. Functional and Natural approaches to health is generally considered elective care and therefore falls into the fee for service category and must be paid at the time of visit. This is due to the fact that insurance companies operate under a disease management model and do not cover health and wellness. It is important to note the following:

1. We do not fulfill an insurance company’s requirement for an in network primary care physician and we are not in-network with any insurance plan.

2. We are not available for same-day emergency appointments.

3. We do not have a 24-hour answering service and do not take calls on weekends. If you need to be seen urgently or have a medical emergency you would need to visit an ER or urgent care center.

4. We are not primary care providers.
