(1) Do you accept health insurance?
A: I do not. But, if you have HSA/FSA accounts or a wellness stipend through your workplace, in most cases, you can submit Troy Naturopathic’s receipt for reimbursement. Naturopathic doctors in the State of Michigan have yet to be recognized as healthcare professionals. Until the state licenses Naturopathic Doctors, it cannot be covered under insurance. Efforts by the Michigan Association of Naturopathic Physicians are under way to license Naturopathic Physicians in the state of Michigan.
FAQ related to my practice:
(2) Are you accepting new patients?
A: Yes. However, I am no longer accepting new patients in 2017. If you'd like to become a new patient, you can book your initial consult for January 2018.
(3) If I see you, do I need to see my MD or DO?
A. Yes. The state of Michigan doesn’t recognize Naturopathic Doctors as licensed health professionals. I am unable at this time to perform physical exams, order routine labwork, and diagnose disease. Therefore, additional care under a GP/PCP is highly recommended.
(4) Do you work collaboratively with other healthcare providers?
Yes. I work well alongside many different healthcare providers (specialists, GP/PCPs, OT, PT, LMT etc). However, how closely I work with your other providers is completely up to you.
(5) What is concierge medicine?
Concierge medicine at Troy Naturopathic allows the flexibility for you to see me whenever you need to. For one flat fee paid in full after the initial consultation, you can see me an unlimited number of times over the course of 1 year. The one year term begins during the initial consultation & ends exactly in one year. Please note that concierge medicine fees do not include the cost of supplements.
