Fees and Services

published by Dr. Marcantel on March 23rd, 2019 Print this page

Full payment for services is due at the time the services are rendered.

Insurance: As with almost all naturopathic doctors, we are not in any insurance networks. Because naturopaths often approach care in a different way from allopathic doctors traditional health insurance plans often don’t cover our services (although some do–it’s always good to check with your health insurance carrier about out-of-network coverage). The positive side for those who are willing to pay out-of-pocket (or use a health savings account–another great option for those with high deductible plans) is that it allows us the freedom to offer the treatments we think our patients need, rather than be restricted to only those treatments that an insurance provider deems appropriate.
 If you wish to submit a claim to your insurance provider a superbill will be provided for you at your request to send in to your insurance company for possible out-of-network reimbursement.

New patient initial visit:  $275

Your initial visit will be approximately one hour long. Dr. Marcantel will cover a thorough health history from you including past medical problems, family health history, any pertinent lab results you have brought in, current medications or supplements you may be taking, the nature of any current health complaints, and she will do a physical exam. The purpose of this visit is to admit you to Dr. Marcantel’s health care program and to determine an appropriate next step toward achieving your health goals.

PLEASE NOTE: Because we do not double-book our appointment times, this 1-hour slot is reserved specifically for you. If for any reason you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please give a minimum of 48 hours notice to our office.

Established patient visits

The first follow-up appointment after admission to our services is typically a phone consultation. This allows you to speak with Dr. Marcantel from the comfort of your own home or office without having to make a trip to our clinic. A 30-45 minute appointment is usually recommended for patients who are making their first return appointment after admission. This time is needed for going over any diagnostic lab tests that may have been done and to cover the recommended protocol for care that Dr. Marcantel will discuss with you.

After the first return appointment, a typical follow-up appointment lasts from 15 – 30 minutes, depending on what needs to be addressed. Most follow-up appointments to review lab results, to discuss symptoms and treatment protocols, or make medication changes can be done through phone consultations. Phone consultations are a convenient way of having an appointment with Dr. Marcantel without having to leave your home or work.

Longer visits may also be appropriate for established  patients who have extensive lab results to cover or for patients who have not seen Dr. Marcantel for some time or have particularly challenging cases.

 

Office visits (excluding procedures such as IV therapy) and phone consultations are billed at the same rate, as follows:

50-60 minute appt:  $220

35-45-minute appt:  $170

20-30-minute appt:  $120

10-15-minute appt:  $65

The length of time required for follow-up visits is dependent on the time necessary to provide the best possible ongoing treatment for the patient. (If you are unsure of the appropriate length of visit to schedule, please email us.)

Procedures

IV (intravenous) therapy:  Prices vary depending on the treatment. For example, an Adrenal Push for adrenal fatigue is $175. IV treatments generally take 15 minutes to administer. Please consult with our staff to find the exact price of your suggested treatment before scheduling your appointment.

B12 injection:  $20

Acupuncture:  $220 for a 1-hour treatment

Please inquire about the cost for other procedures offered before scheduling your appointment.

Common laboratory tests

ZRT Saliva Test

Hormone Profile I:  $175

The Hormone Profile I tests for estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA-S, and cortisol levels. This is an excellent test to provide information necessary for determining hormonal imbalances that can be the root cause of many health issues. This will help Dr. Marcantel develop a proper treatment protocol. (This is the hormone test most often recommended by Dr. Marcantel.)

Food Sensitivity Panel: A basic 100 Food Panel is $300.

Used for testing for food sensitivities that may be causing a variety of troublesome symptoms such as sinus problems, gut problems, aching joints, and skin rashes. This is different from food allergy testing because a sensitivity can be more subtle and insidious than an allergy and can be the underlying cause for a variety of health problems.

Blood tests: Blood testing is done through LabCorp and Sonora Quest Laboratories. 

Dr. Marcantel offers a wide variety of screening tests. She will discuss with you any tests that she feels may be appropriate for your health care needs. Please feel free to inquire about any testing you may be interested in.
