Insurance Information

Choosing naturopathic care means that you have chosen to step out of the restrictions of the conventional medical system to find the type of health care you are seeking. It also means that you have made the decision to invest in yourself by assuming financial responsibility for your wellness goals. Still, it may be possible to receive reimbursement from your health insurance provider for some of the services we offer.


Full payment for services is due at the time the services are rendered, including services that may be covered by insurance.

As a service to our patients, Dr. Marcantel’s staff will submit billing claims for reimbursement to most insurance companies. We do NOT submit to United Healthcare. Submission of a claim does not guarantee reimbursement and is subject to your individual health plan benefits. There is no extra charge for this service. Please read all of the information below to better understand the limitations of insurance coverage for our services.

Many of the lab tests offered through our office are covered by insurance. The type of test and limits of coverage depend greatly on your individual policy. In some cases, it may be possible to pay a co-pay at time of service in the office and then have the participating lab bill your insurance company for the balance. Before purchasing any lab services, please ask our staff about the possibility of coverage.

Most insurance plans do not list Naturopathic Physicians as providers. However, reimbursement for many of our services may be possible under the Out-of-Network benefits provision in your plan.

Medicare, Medicaid (AHCCCS), TRICARE, and other government insurance policies do not cover Naturopathic Physicians. Our office does not submit to these agencies.

Our office does not submit to United HealthCare. 

Dr. Marcantel’s office does not offer prequalification of coverage for patients. Please contact your insurance provider directly with questions about covered services.

Most of the services offered by Dr. Marcantel should qualify under your Health Savings Account (HSA) plan.

If you would like to submit for reimbursement on your own, a superbill providing a summary of the services rendered, diagnoses, and charges applied will be provided for you to send to your insurance company.
