What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine is personalized clinical care that deals with root cause of disease, instead of just treating symptoms. As a functional medicine provider, Kathy will search for underlying triggers that are contributing to your illness through cutting-edge lab testing, and tailor the intervention to your specific needs as an individual. She may use diet, supplements, lifestyle changes, or medication to treat your illness, but will seek the most gentle way to help your body restore balance along with the least invasive treatment possible. She seeks to promote wellness and create hope, health and healing by working with you!
Will my insurance cover the cost of treatment and labs?
For the most part, yes. Occasionally specialty testing may be recommended that will require an out-of-pocket fee. Any of these types of expense can still be submitted to your insurance company for consideration of reimbursement, or you may use your HSA if that is applicable.
What about the cost of supplements?
Typically, this is an out-of-pocket expense. You may purchase your supplements from our online store. A discount is offered for all purchases. These purchases are eligible for reimbursement using your HSA.
