MEDICARE AND INSURANCE COVERAGE

The Institute for Progressive Medicine is currently a contracted provider for any private medical insurance and we cannot bill Medicare for services received at IPM.

Most of our laboratory testing, is run by an outside laboratory that is contracted with almost all major medical insurance companies and Medicare, so labs will generally be covered by your insurance company.

If you have private PPO insurance coverage, we will be happy to provide you with a superbill that you may submit to your insurance company to seek reimbursement for services received at IPM.

SPECIAL SENIOR DISCOUNT

Beginning January 1, 2019 we will offer a special 20% senior discount for some covered services that would normally be covered by Medicare. This discount will be offered to all patients over the age of 65, regardless of insurance status and includes 20% off the regular price for new patient visits and return patient visits with a medical doctor. Please contact reception for more information.

OTHER PAYMENT OPTIONS

We have partnered with Parasail and CareCredit to offer payment plans for medical services. Unlike credit cards, Parasail offers fixed interest rate loans based on your financial information with no fees. CareCredit is used by over 10 million card holders and offers special financing options to patients.

Once test results are received, a doctor will review your results and make recommendations. The Institute for Progressive Medicine does not fax laboratory results directly to patients. If it has been less than 2 weeks since your labs were drawn, please be patient—we will send your results as soon as they are reviewed by your doctor.

Fees And Billing All outside laboratory testing is payable directly to the company performing the test. Fees vary depending on specific tests ordered by your doctor. Labs are generally contracted with all major medical insurance companies.
