We are in network with the following insurances:
Congress enacted a “No Surprises Act” which went into effect 1/1/2022. This applies to private pay (out of pocket) clients, those who are not using insurance to cover our services.
If you are using insurance to see us (Blue Cross Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim, Aetna, Cigna, United, Allways, or Tufts) this Act doesn’t apply to you. We will confirm your insurance coverage before our first appointment, whenever possible.
If you are a private pay client who is not using insurance and paying out of pocket to see us, this Act applies to you.
The act is described as “new federal protections against surprise medical bills that take effect in 2022.’ Surprise medical bills arise when insured consumers inadvertently receive care from “out-of-network hospitals, doctors, or other providers they did not choose” Surprise medical bills can arise in an emergency when the patient has no ability to select the emergency room, treating physicians, or ambulance providers. Surprise bills can also arise when a patient receives planned care. For example, a patient could go to an in-network facility (e.g., a hospital or ambulatory surgery center), but later find out that a provider treating her (e.g., an anesthesiologist or radiologist) does not participate in her health plan’s network. The patient then will receive a “surprise bill” after the fact. To protect you, Congress created this Act. You are entitled to a “good faith estimate” of the cost of care. (see all the way at the end of this page for an official notice of the Act)
It is highly unlikely this could affect our work together. There will be no situation in which you would “inadvertently” receive care from us or with no choice or foreknowledge. Any appointments are scheduled by you or during appointment with your sole input. Additionally, optional testing and supplements are always discussed beforehand and entirely your choice whether to purchase or not. There will never, under any circumstances, be ‘surprise’ costs.
Below are our rates and some further information.
Our rates for services:
Initial intake appointment (60 minutes): $250
Follow up Nutrition appointment (45 minutes): $150
Follow up Nutrition appointment (30 minutes) $100
How many appointments you might have is dependent on your case and your needs. Most people are seen every other week. Others are seen more frequently or less frequently than that. Some people are seen ongoing for years, others are only seen a couple times. It varies greatly.
Rest assured that we will be as transparent with you about the costs of the services we agree on together. You will have “no surprises” here. As always, you may certainly ask us about any costs about which you may be unsure, and you will be provided clear information. Please feel free to contact us if you have any related questions.
