Wellness Program - Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is a form of root cause medicine that requires investigative work. No two people are alike and this knowledge is at the heart of our Wellness program. Therefore, in designing our Wellness program, we strive to provide packages that can be individualized to address the needs of our patients. 

 

As you may already know, this is not a service you can typically find in the insurance-based system. In fact, we are all becoming more and more aware that the current medical and insurance system is not a successful model. Statistics show that we as a country and our current healthcare system does acute care and emergency care well but when it comes to managing chronic disease states, we do poorly. Insurance requires that physicians and healthcare facilities focus on “Quality of Care Metrics” which seem great in title but these measures do not truly address the needs of the patients as they do the needs of the industry.

 

Our current system is also based on your organ systems rather than your whole body. You, my friend, are not just a kidney or a heart but you are a whole body that is interconnected.  Consider the workings of a puzzle. One missing piece and the puzzle is not complete. Functional Medicine is an approach that allows us to address as many pieces of the puzzle to get you better.  Think of it as an investment for your health for the long run that will leave you feeling much better and saving money over years in health care costs. Our goal is to get you to your optimal health.  We hope to have the opportunity to be a part of your team for health care recovery or optimization. 

Our packages are nutrition based on the 6 Pillars of Health:

  • Gastrointestinal/Immune

  • Hormones (Thyroid & Sex)

  • Stress/Mental/Emotional

  • Detoxification

  • Nervous System

  • Motion/Exercise

Insurance Questions

Does insurance cover the packages?


  • Insurance coverage is based on your particular insurance plan. Insurances in general only cover services that have “procedural codes” available for submission. For example, a face-to-face visit with Dr. Benton is a billable service as there are a variety of codes that describe the different types of encounters. Keep in mind that not all components of the package have billable codes that describe the service. However, we encourage you to speak with your insurance company about the possibility of being reimbursed for any billable component.
  • In selection of laboratory testing, we do try to select labs that may be covered by your insurance when possible but are not always able to do so. Again, consider this an investment of your health. If a “covered” test does not provide the information necessary to help us get to the root cause of your issues, we will not waste your time or money as it defeats the purpose of the program. Remember that the purpose of this program is to get you to optimal health and you are seeking our services based on the fact that the current system is not achieving this.




Do you bill insurance?


Although we do not provide billing services, the patient is welcomed to submit any portions of their package that may be covered to their insurance company as consideration for reimbursement. You will be provided a spreadsheet breaking down the components of your package at the time of purchase. We are also happy to provide you with an encounter note for any face-to-face visit included in your package.




Can I use my HSA or FSA card to purchase these services?


Certain services may be covered by these spending accounts. However, we encourage you to inquire with your organization for direct answers of coverage before using your card. You may also want to visit IRS.gov to obtain publications online regarding medical and dental expenses




Does my Medical Cost Share cover these services?


Certain service may be covered but certainly at the discretion of your cost sharing group. Again, we encourage you to inquire with your cost sharing group on the possibility of coverage.
