A first time in-person visit costs $289. This includes your initial visit with the practitioner, testing, and first month’s written prescription that you’ll take to your pharmacy. It does not include the actual bottle of medication.
A medication refill costs $149. You are not required to come into the office whenever a refill is needed. Instead, we connect with our patients remotely using telemedicine, so that you can simply text, email, or call us — replacing travel with efficient treatment and secure communication. Then, we send your prescription digitally to the pharmacy of your choice.
Please note: the fee paid for a telemedicine refill encounter (a.k.a. a follow-up visit) covers the doctor’s time and staff’s time, as the same amount of work and several steps are required to process a refill for a controlled substance medication. However, although we don’t require patients to be seen in person when they need a refill, patients are welcome to come in and be seen for the same fee.
The video below explains in depth why we do not accept insurance but how we help you get reimbursed if you do have insurance. But if you feel like reading instead: not accepting insurance directly allows us to spend more time with our patients, and, we are under no obligation to share your medical information with any third party. It also allows us to offer a more personalized level of care without insurance companies seeking to control the course of treatment.
Therefore, we do require payment via cash or credit/debit card at the time of your visit. However, if you do have insurance, we will submit your insurance claim for you. Your insurer will then reimburse you directly the amount they would have paid us; the average reimbursement averages 63% of your visit cost. We're happy to take care of the paperwork for you.
The following information will provide you with some clarity on the subject of insurance reimbursements:
Will my insurance reimburse me for the money I pay you?
If your insurance is a PPO (which simply means you can see any physician without first having to get a referral from your primary care doctor), all medical service fees you pay us can be submitted to your insurance for reimbursement (we do this for you). This includes your first appointment, and refills/follow-up visits.
What do I need to do to get reimbursed?
As a courtesy to our patients, we submit the claims to your insurance company for you. If you have provided us your insurance card, there is nothing for you to do.
How much will my insurance reimburse?
If you’d like to find out exactly how much your insurance will reimburse for your visits, simply call the Benefits Department on the back of your insurance card and give them the following three pieces of information:
1. Amount you were charged, or will be charged: New Visit: $289.00; Follow-Up Visits: $149.00
2. Diagnosis Code: F90.0 -- Adult Attention Deficit Disorder
3. Visit/Procedure Codes: New Visit -- 99205 / Follow-Up Visit -- 99214
By providing the above information, your insurance company can tell you the exact amount they will reimburse directly to you.
Insurance companies we can submit claims for reimbursement:
Any commercial PPO insurance:
Blue Cross/Blue Shield
Insurance companies we cannot submit claims for reimbursement:
Any HMO insurance
* An HMO is a managed health care plan. As such, it requires members to only be seen by physicians within their managed health care network. We are not contracted with any HMOs. Consequently, HMOs will not reimburse you for any fees you pay to us.
