Dr. Carver is an Integrative Medicine specialist and does not maintain hospital privileges or operate as a PCP. We recommend that you maintain your relationship with a PCP who accepts your insurance, provides same-day service, and can be on-board with your specialized care here at Wellness By Design.
As an Integrative Medicine Practice we do not participate with any insurance programs, nor are we listed on any insurer’s preferred provider list. Integrative Medicine is still considered “alternative” medicine and does not fall under the restrictive practices that insurance companies dictate. We are considered “out of network” so look at your policy under ‘out of network’ provisions to see what they may cover. Most likely you have a separate deductible, and the insurance company may pay a percentage of the portion that is actually covered. We are happy to provide you with a form containing all of the diagnostic codes and receipts for procedures your insurance carrier may reimburse for. There is a $25 charge for each form prepared.
WBD accepts all forms of Medical Spending Accounts.
Many Lab tests can be billed to Medicare so long as there is a valid diagnosis that requires the test. Patients must sign an agreement not to bill Medicare for services received at Wellness By Design, since we have “opted out” of Medicare.
