  • Followup with labs and review in 3 months

  • Cost: Fee for Service or a bundled option with a $1500 maximum out of pocket offset by 3rd party payment for covered services. We estimate that 50% or more of these costs will be covered by insurance.

Payment of at least 50% of the fee is requested at the time services are scheduled to encourage completion of the entire planned assessment and followup.

Once the evaluation is finished, an ongoing treatment plan is offered as part of an affordable, bundled payment plan.
