Our Financial Policy
Beginning June 1, 2020 visits at Balance Integrative Health & Wellness will considered ‘out of network’, meaning we are no longer contracted with insurance providers and no longer accepting insurance. Visits will be paid by the patient and the patient will have the opportunity to submit a claim to their insurance, if desired.
Some common considerations to think about as you pursue integrative healthcare:
- Most people have a high deductible insurance plan and have to pay out of pocket until their deductible is met.
- If you have an HSA or Flex spending account, you can use this money on healthcare visits, IV therapy and more.
- There’s no copay. You pay for the visit on the day of your scheduled appointment.
- Any blood work, which is typically ran through your insurance covered lab, will continue to be the same cost.
- For prescription refills, patients must be seen within the past 6 months.
