Telemedicine offers many benefits for both the patient and the provider, including convenient access to efficient and high-quality care, flexible scheduling, and significant cost savings on overhead costs, transportation and time away from work. 

A secure HIPAA-compliant telehealth service is used to conduct virtual video consultations.

Recommended functional lab testing and supplements are prescribed online through Rupa Health & Fullscript, HIPAA-compliant companies that make online ordering easy and convenient.

Recommended prescriptions are sent electronically to your pharmacy of choice.

Patients have access to an online HIPAA-compliant patient portal for messaging, if needed, in between scheduled visits.
You can book appointments for ongoing care online anytime at your convenience.

Unfortunately, insurance companies do not favor holistic and integrative medicine or wellness services. 

However, patients may use HSA or FSA to pay for applicable services and treatments. Also, a superbill claim can be generated for patients to submit to their private insurance companies for potential reimbursement. Patients will need to contact their insurance company to determine if their services are eligible for reimbursement. Superbills may only be used with private insurance companies and are not to be used with medicare or medicaid.
