Fees and Payment: The standard treatment half-hour is 25 minutes, and a treatment hour is 50 minutes. This allots enough time for me to record important information in your chart as well as to send any email correspondence that’s necessary at the conclusion of your visit.
The fee for a treatment half-hour is $250 and a treatment hour is $400. The fee for the initial visit is $650. This includes time for Dr. Kaiser to review your forms, labs and medical history prior to your visit, and then to meet with you. A significant amount of additional time is spent researching your condition and emailing you a detailed treatment plan.
Many conditions can be addressed with a limited number of visits. Comprehensive treatment programs can be established within a few visits and then maintained with periodic followups. The cost for ALL visits and lab work during the first 4-6 months is typically less than $3500.
We will review and construct a complete healing program whose goal is to positively change the course of your health. I would point out that major repairs to a damaged car often costs far more. This should be looked at as an investment in your future health.
Payment by credit card is required at the time of the visit. New patient visits are charged the day before the visit in order to ensure that the card details are correct.
Insurance: Submitting forms to your insurance company is your responsibility. I will provide you with a billing form (called a superbill) that you can send to your insurance company for reimbursement. Any questions about insurance coverage should be directed toward your insurance company. Medicare does not cover these consultations.
Confidentiality: All correspondence between us is strictly confidential. Any release of medical records requires your verbal or written consent.
Medical Correspondence: Written correspondence for various purposes (insurance reimbursement, disability certification, etc.) can be provided for a fee. The cost is based on the time it takes to analyze, dictate, and edit the correspondence (@$350/hour). Please let me know if you would like an estimate of any correspondence costs in advance.
Cancellations and Missed Appointment Fees: I require two business days’ notice for any appointment cancellations or rescheduling. This allows me the opportunity to try and fill the open appointment time. If I cannot fill the appointment slot, a missed appointment or cancellation fee of $125 for a half hour appointment or $250 for an hour appointment will be charged. I see very few patients per day and the absence of one or two appointments is significant. Please respect this policy.
Consultative Relationship: I am an Integrative Medicine Consultant. I specialize in helping my clients integrate both natural therapies (diet, vitamins, herbs, exercise, stress reduction, etc.) and standard medical treatments (hormones, medications and surgery) into the most effective healing/treatment program possible. I specialize in working with clients facing serious and life-threatening conditions, but I also work with clients who are dealing with less serious situations including allergies, chronic infections, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, frequent infections, etc.
I am happy to work in conjunction with your primary care physician and communicate regularly with he or she by email, fax, letter, or phone, if necessary. I suggest that you maintain a relationship with a primary care physician even if you do not see them regularly.
I look forward to assisting you with your medical care and helping you achieve the best health possible!
Jon D. Kaiser, M.D.
