Insurance & Fees
We strive to stay in the forefront of medical care by taking the best from western medicine and integrating alternative forms of treatment into our service plan. Please refer to the information below regarding our insurance and fee policies.
As with other specialty treatment, the cost of a visit at our institute is dependent on the comprehensive nature of the examination and complexity of the problem that are evaluated.
The fee is a combination of the evaluation and management service by the physician, the time spent for laboratory evaluation, the medical decision-making and the time spent developing the individualized treatment program.
Fee for Initial Comprehensive Diagnostic Consultation – $350.00 visits are usually between 60 –75 minutes.
This includes a personal review of current symptoms, a comprehensive review of your medical and family history and a review of your life style including dietary habits and a physical examination. At the end of your initial consultation additional tests may be ordered, which could include blood, urine or saliva examination(s). Tests addressing your nutritional status may also be ordered which could include testing for heavy metal toxicity, urine neurotransmitter levels and bowel toxicity. Dr. Ruelas will discuss all testing with you during your consultation. Cost of any laboratory work and additional pertinent specialty testing is not included in the cost of the office visit.
Payment is due at the time services are rendered.
Payment options include: Cash, check or credit card (VISA, MasterCard)
We do not participate in any health insurance plans, health insurance networks, Medicaid, or Medicare; therefore, we cannot accept assignment for insurance.
Patients submit a copy of their itemized bill of services rendered at their appointment to their individual insurance carrier for evaluation of benefits.
