Q. What insurance do you accept?
It is important that each patient inquire with their insurance provider to learn about covered services. In general, insurance contracted through employers based in the state of Vermont will cover naturopathic care. This includes BCBS, MVP, Cigna and medicaid if they are Vermont based plans . Many out of state insurance companies do not cover naturopathic medicine, but calling to ask is worthwhile.
Acupuncture is a covered service with some, but not all, insurance companies. If you are receiving Acupuncture treatment, please call your insurance company to determine if services are covered. State of Vermont, Federal Blue Cross Blue Shield, University of Vermont Medical Center, and Middlebury College are major local employers who have included Acupuncture in their benefits package.
Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover naturopathic or acupuncture services.
Q. How long is a visit?
New patient visits are approximately 60 minutes long. Follow up visits are scheduled for 30 minutes. These estimates do not include the time the doctor spends in preparation for your visit or coordinating care with your other providers.
