Insurance & Fees

We believe health care should be affordable. We’re one of the few integrative & functional practices to accept Medicare, NC-Medicaid, and other major insurances. Our mission is to help patients find affordable care options to recover and heal from complex chronic illnesses.

Insurance

We’re one of the few Integrative and/or Functional practices in the WNC area that accepts NC Medicaid, Medicare, NC Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Humana and Cigna. All other insurance companies are out of network Prior to your first office visit, please email or fax us a copy of your insurance card. This will allow us to provide an accurate estimate of your total financial responsibility at your intial visit.

Financing Available

Regardless of Insurance status, you are ultimately responsible for your bill and any expenses uncovered by your insurance. We’re happy to discuss these expenses during your first visit.  Financing options are available through Care Credit to help covered expenses for unmet deductibles or services that aren’t covered by your insurance.

Making your Initial Appointment and Cancelation of any Appointment

If you are making your initial appointment please call the office and the staff will let you know what forms to fill out so they can create a chart and then they can make your appointment. All cancelations must have 2 business day prior notice for a no-charge for the cancelation.

Patient Fees

In-Network 3rd Party Payers set their own fees for specific services.  We are contractually bound to follow those compensation rates for our services. There will be some services that are not covered by insurance. The rates for these are not always covered by insurance but, in some cases, we can work with insurers to extend coverage options. If you’re interested in these services please ask us during your next appointment.
