Precise Health is contracted with major insurance companies locally and nationally on your behalf. We work to manage your out-of-pocket costs as responsibly as possible. For example, the expense of one visit at a similar “cash only” practice ranges from $500-1500 for a single visit. This is likely the same amount as 12-24 copayments through insurance. On the other hand, after deductibles are met, copayments are often $10-20 each which hopefully makes our plan and process within reach for you. HSA’s and FSA’s can also help offset overall cost.
We currently work with the following insurance companies:
- BCBS of IL commercial PPO Plans
- United Healthcare
- VA Community Care – 49 states Hawaii pending
Please verify your insurance benefits and coverage for medical, nutrition counseling and diagnostic testing with your insurance company. If your insurance company requires you to have a prior authorization or a letter of medical necessity for any in-office services, laboratory testing or prescriptions, we are here to support you. To expedite and get the best results, our staff will provide information needed for you to complete any documents after you have contacted your insurance company. You are responsible for copayments at the time of service to meet your deductible and copayments per the terms of your insurance coverage. Patients using a high deductible plan and working toward meeting their deductible will be assessed a $150 consultation charge per visit until the deductible has been met. The client is responsible for any balance above $150.
Possible Insurance codes to ask about during pre-authorization include:
- Carla Heiser 1578741013
- Dr. Spahr 1235195991
- 97802 or 97803
99203, 99204, 99205
99213, 99214, 99215
Late Arrival – If you arrive late to your appointment, the appointment’s end time remains the same. This is out of respect to other scheduled clients. This includes Telemed visits.
No-Show – a full payment charge will be due
Cancellation – please call to cancel and reschedule within 24 hours of your appointment. You will be considered a no-show if the appointment is not cancelled.
Returned Checks: A $45 fee will be charged for any check that has been returned due to insufficient funds. The $45 fee plus the check amount is due within 10 days to avoid further action being taken. If your account is in arrears for more than 60 days, we will turn your account over to a third-party collection agency.
Financial arrangements made by you with your attorneys, insurance companies or other third-party payers will not be considered in the collection of your account.
Step 2: Panels
Lab Testing & Care Plan Review
All lab results will be reviewed during a scheduled appointment only.
Medical Nutritional and Lifestyle Education
Lab testing is an important aspect of your metabolic nutrition plan. One lab test result will be reviewed per visit and reevaluated according to your personalized plan.
Typical lab work includes:
GI Stool Effects –
Our comprehensive stool profile identifies the underlying causes of common gastrointestinal symptoms such as gas, bloating, indigestion, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and constipation.
Urine Comp/Toxic Elements & Heavy Metals –
This test provides a comprehensive assessment of toxins which affects our neurological and other systems adversely.
Hormone and Neurotransmitters –
Identifies imbalances causing issues with sleep, anxiety, sugar cravings, depression, irritability, poor memory, fatigue, energy levels and sex drive, etc.
NutrEval FMV –
Nutra Eval evaluates over 125 biomarkers and assesses the body’s functional need for 40 antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, digestive support, and other select nutrients to determine what needs to be added or eliminated to achieve optimal health.
Celiac/Food Allergy –
This test identifies foods causing inflammation to help direct your nutritional plan.
The results of your lab tests may be accessed through your Cerbo patient account after you have seen your practitioner. Please upload a copy of lab results or other diagnostic reports from your other health providers to your Cerbo patient account in advance – please do this at least one week prior to your appointment. T Additional lab work at regular intervals will allow us to monitor your progress and direct revisions as needed. We will call you regarding test results when emergency values or immediate action are required.
Step 3: Personalized Plan
Once you have completed the Step 1 Partner and Step 2 Panel, we will work with you on the Step 3 Personalized Plan based on your test results and your feedback.
How often will I be seen for appointments?
Your appointment frequency is based on agreement with your personalized approach. A unique plan that fits your needs will be created.
Your appointments, as described in Step 1 Partner, will lead to in-home test kits and possible in office labs. After your in-home test kit instruction appointment, we ask that you complete your test kits and lab work within 8 – 10 weeks.
After initial testing, your practitioners may request additional lab tests before each appointment to monitor progress and direct revisions as needed.
We process labs through HealthLab, a Northwestern Medical affiliate, which results in significant cost savings to our clients. Please see the HealthLab letter on our patient portal for further details. Our policy is to review one test result per appointment due to the volume of information covered in each specialized test. These tests are much more in-depth than customary bloodwork.
Your personalized care will focus on one or more of the following:
- Removal of contaminants
- GI Strengthening
- Nutritional Rebalance
- Hormone optimization
- Monitoring ongoing medical issues
The nutritional and metabolic medical attention we provide is similar to a marathon, not a sprint. We anticipate that as imbalances are removed, symptoms lessen or go away, conditions improve, and your health strengthens.
Behind the scenes – Coordination with hospital and specialty laboratories, diagnostic centers, formulating personalized medication plans, particularly for sublingual immunotherapy, IV nutrition (enteral parenteral formulations), cooperating with local and compounding pharmacies/pharmacists, collaborative physicians and healthcare providers may require behind the scenes time.
