What About Insurance?
Dr. Hubbard is a participating provider for LLUAHSC Risk Management. We will file your acupuncture claims to LLUAHSC Risk Management. However, LLUAHSC Risk Management does not provide coverage for Functional Medicine.
We are considered out-off-network physician by most insurance carriers, and benefits are generally paid directly to the patient by the insurance company. Therefore, it is up to each individual to determine whether their insurance plan provides coverage for consultations, treatments, and lab tests. Most insurance companies will not reimburse for supplements. We will provide you an encounter form (aka superbill) that lists the diagnosis (ICD-9) and procedure (CPT) codes, which you may submit to your insurance company. Please note that we cannot guarantee reimbursement. For more information on this topic ...
Based on your health status and health goals, Dr. Hubbard may recommend conventional and/or Functional Medicine testing. We will provide you a lab requisition for conventional tests. Most of those tests are covered by major PPO insurance plans. However, all HMO policies require diagnostic tests to be ordered only by the primary care provider (PCP). Therefore, we recommend that you take our laboratory requisition to your PCP and request that he/she order those tests for you.
When necessary, Dr. Hubbard may recommend specific Functional Medicine tests, for which we will provide you a test kit that can be done in our office or at a nearby lab. Some tests kits may be taken home for saliva, urine, stool, or hair collection. Each kit comes with its own pre-paid mailer, which you drop off at the appropriate carrier or call for pick-up at your home.
We have negotiated wholesale prices for many tests for those who do not have insurance coverage or have a large deductible.
The results of your lab tests will be sent to Dr. Hubbard 2 to 4 weeks after the tests were performed and/or mailed to the lab. Dr. Hubbard will evaluate your results. After evaluation, we will contact you to schedule a follow-up appointment.
Please allow 3-4 working day for your refills. Specific orders may be dropped shipped to you. For this purpose, a valid credit card must be kept in file.
Pre-approval is required on all returns! No supplement returns will be accepted after 30 days on all regularly stocked items. Special orders cannot be returned. Refrigerated items cannot be returned.Prepaid tests can be returned for credit up to 3 months from the date of the purchase. A 5% fee will be applied to all returned items that were paid buy credit to cover the processing fees for the initial sale as well as for processing your refund.
