Frequently Asked Questions

What is Functional Medicine and what does it Treat?
The use of Functional Medicine is a systematic approach to understand the cause of chronic illness. Functional Medicine practitioners look at the interaction between nutrition and genes, hormones, your gut microbiome, social influences, biochemistry, and pathophysiology to get to the root cause. In addition to diagnosing and treating many chronic illnesses, we specialize in hormone in-balance, brain health, heavy metals and detoxification, and anti-aging.
Do the providers with TCFM accept insurance?
We do not bill insurance for the providers with TCFM. However, we will provide you a superbill/receipt if you would like to submit to your insurance for reimbursement
Why don’t you accept insurance?
While we understand the importance of having insurance coverage for catastrophic needs or hospital stays, insurance reimbursements limit the time we can feasibly spend with patients to provide the individual assessments we need. Furthermore, insurance typically does not pay for or limits our ability to conduct the detailed lab testing and other diagnostic work that provides the answers we need to get to the root cause.
Are the providers with TCFM Primary Care Providers?
While many of our providers can meet some of your primary care needs, the providers with TCFM are more specialized in their approach. Our goal is to help you get to the root cause of disease and symptoms and improve overall health. However, we will work with your Primary Care Provider to ensure collaboration. In particular, although it is not required, we encourage you to select a Primary Care Provider with PrivaMD Physicians. These physicians are selectively contracted with because we know they value a holistic approach to medicine, think outside the box, and consider eastern medicine therapies. Furthermore, our EMR (Electronic Medical Record) is shared with them allowing for easier collaboration. You may select one of them to manage your insured, primary care, and acute care needs.
I am concerned about cost. I pay for insurance, why would I pay cash for my health care?
Our payment system for health care is designed to pay when you are sick but not keep you well. As in automobile insurance, regular maintenance (oil changes, tires etc) are not covered by insurance. You receive reimbursement when you have an accident and that typically is after a deductible. At PrivaMD Center for Functional Medicine we view our roles as key to helping your body treat itself. Not only fix the root cause but MAINTAIN wellness. Too often people do not love themselves enough to invest in their own health and wellness. We do offer packages that help you save money on the diagnostic services, as well as credit plans like Denefits and (hopefully soon) Care Credit.
