Fees

Here at Montana Whole Health it is our goal to be fully transparent with our fees for services.

We are happy to submit a claim to your insurer for you.  We are in-network physicians with many insurance plans.  However, many individual plans specifically exclude naturopathic services.   You are responsible for verifying your insurance benefits, and you will be responsible for paying the portion that your insurance does not cover.

Verify Your Insurance Benefits

All patients receive a “Time of Service” discount for paying for their visit the day of their appointment. All prices listed below are effective January 1st, 2022.

Standard visits

Paid at appointment (includes Time of Service discount) Billed to Insurance
New Patient Appointment (Moderate complexity, 45 – 60 minutes) $315 $350
New Patient Appointment (High complexity, 60+ minutes) $380 $410

Most patients will have a Moderate complexity appointment for their first visit at Montana Whole Health.  45-60 minutes is typically ample time for patients with standard complaints.  High complexity visits may be required for patients with multiple complex complaints or who need additional time to answer questions or review records.

Paid at appointment (includes Time of Service discount) Billed to Insurance
Returning Patient Appointment (Moderate complexity, 30 minutes) $165 $190
Returning Patient Appointment (High complexity, 45+ minutes) $215 $260

 

Most patients will have a Moderate complexity appointment lasting approximately 30 minutes for follow-up visits.  Patients with multiple complex issues, or who need more than 30 minutes to discuss issues or answer questions may need a High complexity visit.  Some patients who require communication or coordination with other medical providers, or who need extensive research or medical review may also require a High complexity visit.

Labs

Between your first and second visit your naturopathic doctor may order labwork.  These fees are not included in the prices listed above, but are an essential part of forming your plan.

New Patient Adult Wellness Visit (including gynecological exam, if required) $365 Billed to insurance, no cost to patient*

Acute visit

*Deductibles and insurance coverage.

All patients are responsible for confirming that their insurance policy includes naturopathic services. Patients are responsible for any amount that their insurance denies. If you are unsure of your insurance coverage we will ask you to pay at time of service.

Please understand the difference between Wellness visits and Standard/Acute visits. Please be aware that wellness visits are billed differently from standard and acute visits. By law all “preventive” visits (well child checks, well adult checks, routine gynecological exams) are covered at 100% by insurance plans. These preventive visits do not have copays or get applied to a deductible. Other visits, like for depression, fatigue, an ear infection, strep throat, bladder infection, etc, DO get applied to deductible AND may have a copay.

For example, if your child has regular wellness care but then needs to be seen for an ear infection (an acute visit) – you will likely NOT get a bill for the wellness visit, but MAY get a bill for the acute visit. Similarly, if your child has a regular wellness visit but requires additional time to manage an ongoing, chronic problem (e.g., asthma, or ADHD), especially if they require a referral, you may get a bill for the additional time spent managing the ongoing problem. This often depends on your plan and deductible.

Phew, we know that navigating the world of insurance is tricky, but we’re happy to help you through it. 🙂

**Other fees

Vaccines, vaccine administration fees, standardized tests (like developmental screens for children), blood draw fees, in-house Strep tests, urinalysis, etc., are not included in the prices above. For a full list of services please simply ask, we always have a comprehensive list handy.
