Limited or no Insurance for Naturopathic Care
Unfortunately there is currently limited coverage of naturopathic medicine by most insurance carriers in Arizona. However, more insurance companies are starting to add naturopathic insurance coverage and some other carriers consider naturopathic doctors as “out-of-network providers”. Cigna, Great Western, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and United Health Care have offered full or partial reimbursement to some policy holders in the past. At this time, Medicare and Medicaid do not cover naturopathic physicians. If you have a flexible savings plan or a health savings plan, some or all of the costs may be covered.
Most PPO insurance plans will cover most lab work and diagnostic imaging that is ordered.
For these reasons, payment is due at the time of service. For individuals with insurance coverage, it is your responsibility to check for any coverage requirements of each visit. We cannot guarantee insurance coverage, nor do we bill any insurance carrier directly. However, we are happy to prepare a summary of the treatment billing codes and charges, on the standard insurance paperwork, for your submission to your insurance carrier.
