Visits at Riverstone Naturopathic Health will be billed at the following fee schedule:
90 minutes: (Initial visits only) $350
60 minutes: (follow-up) $250
45 minutes: (follow-up) $225
30 minutes: (follow-up) $150
15 minute infection focus (new patient) $60
15 minute infection focus (existing patient) $40
Initial visits require 90 minutes. Follow up visit time is based on complexity. Please schedule the amount of time that feels reasonable. Visits will be billed by the amount of time spent, as determined at check out at the end of the visit. Time management is critical in this setting to avoid unexpected costs. At the end of each visit, patients will be provided a HCFA form which can be submitted to insurance for reimbursement if the insurance carrier covers naturopathic care.
Infection focus visits are available to both NEW and EXISTING patients. This visit does not require the 90 minute initial visit. These visits are 15 minutes and are intended to focus on infection symptoms or prevention. This visit cannot be used to discuss past treatment plans or other health issues.
After billing to insurance for 10 years in practice I have decided to no longer participate in an insurance-based practice. The evolution of our insurance-based healthcare system is leaving doctors and patients victimized by rules, regulations and costs. While I appreciate the benefits of medical insurance, I am working to find a more sustainable way to practice that supports longevity for both the patient and the doctor in medicine.
