The cost of an initial patient consultation is $500.00. This fee includes an initial interview, a comprehensive history and physical examination along with a state-of-the-art electro-diagnostic screening. Laboratory tests will be ordered by your attending physician at that time. These lab tests will incur fees over and above the initial patient consultation fee and may cost from $200.00 to $2,500.00. After the initial in-depth consultation is completed and the laboratory results have come back and have been reviewed by your physician, an individual treatment program will be developed and discussed with you by one of our lab technicians or a medical assistant. The approximate length of treatment and cost will be outlined at that time.
Some recommended treatments and services may be covered by your health insurance. However, Sierra Integrative Medical Center is not a provider for any insurance companies at this time. Currently, most of our treatments are considered "alternative and preventative" and are not covered by insurance. Fees for the initial evaluation and lab tests are due at the end of the first day. Fees for treatment are due every Friday during the treatment phase. For any services covered by your insurance, you may submit your SIMC receipt for reimbursement to your insurance company. These receipts contain all information required for reimbursement.
Additionally if any other materials are needed by your insurance company SIMC will be happy to provide any assistance as needed.
Please note: SIMC has formally opted out of the Medicare program by the insistence of Medicare. SIMC is a fee-for-service medical center and does not accept any insurance as a form of payment.
