Additionally, patients are required to be seen in person at least once per year.
Being present in person allows us to accurately measure vital signs and conduct a comprehensive health assessment. This is particularly important for patients taking prescription medications, as it helps us confirm the ongoing suitability and safety of treatment.
Please note that temporary provisions and protections that enabled increased access to telemedicine during the COVID pandemic have now been lifted. As a result, we may now require in-person visits to ensure the highest quality of care and comprehensive assessment for our patients. This transition reflects our commitment to maintaining the standards of safety, accuracy, and personalized healthcare that are best achieved through face-to-face consultations.
At this time we do not contract with insurance. We are better able to provide the services patients require with shorter wait times and longer, more meaningful visits.
While we are not “in-network” with any insurance plans, you may be able to receive reimbursement directly from the insurance company. In addition, many patients choose to use HSA (Health Savings Account) cards to pay for their appointments. Please check with your insurance company in order to determine what they require. Many insurance companies will also cover much of the lab work our provider may order.
