Naturopathic Doctor Fees & Policies in Michigan
Lansing, Michigan Office Appointments
Virtual or telemedicine consultations are utilized in place of in office visits for patients who live long distances from our office in Lansing, Michigan. If you are a new patient and are planning to schedule a telephone or Skype consultation with Dr. Nicholas Morgan, the following is required for your appointment. All medical records pertinent to the patient’s diagnosis or disorder are required to be sent to our offices via fax or mail. The Consent for Naturopathic Treatment must be read thoroughly, signed and mailed or faxed back to our offices with the patient’s medical records. Fees for a new patient telephone consultation are billed at the rate of $40.00 per 15 minute increment of time.
Option A – Pay as you go
With option A you pay as you go. The rate is $40 for every 15 minutes. The first appointment is usually 1-1.5 hours and averages $200. Follow up appointments are 15-45 minutes and average about $80. This works well for patients that do not need frequent visits. Usually they come in 2-3 times a year and spend less than $500 dollars a year.
Option B – Wellness Recovery Member
Option B is new and was created for patients that need more frequent visits. Patients become a Wellness Recovery Member. The first visit is $170, then you pay a monthly fee of $70 dollars which allows for up to 2 short visits a month to discuss everything from medical visits to progress with lifestyle changes.
Insurance and Billing
Because Michigan does not license Naturopathic Doctors insurance providers are not obligated to cover our services. Fortunately if your employer offers Health Saving Accounts (HSA) or Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA), we can use those as forms of payment. Also, some insurances reach out to Dr. Morgan because they want to provide naturopathic medicine to their clients. Dr. Morgan is in network with NOVA Pathfinder.
