Choosing Quality Care Over Network Limitations: Why Out-of-Network Care is Worth It

Before anything else, let us discuss the question most often asked of us: Are your services covered by insurance? The answer is simple. If you have out-of-network benefits, most of our services are covered at an out-of-network level.

Please know the model we’ve chosen was what we felt allowed us to provide the best individual care in a holistic, functional medicine practice for each person. As with many things in medicine, what’s covered by insurance can change >

When it comes to healthcare, patients often find themselves at a crossroads, torn between the convenience and perceived affordability of in-network providers versus the potential benefits of seeking out-of-network care. It's common for people to believe that in-network care is cheaper and that the quality of treatment remains consistent regardless of network status. However, in this article, we aim to debunk these myths and shed light on the advantages of choosing out-of-network care. By prioritizing the treatment of the underlying causes rather than merely addressing symptoms, investing in your health can lead to long-lasting relief and significant cost savings in the long run. It may not be possible otherwise.

Treating the cause is not more expensive than repeat colonoscopies, ongoing workups with no answers, imaging that’s too expensive, pricey medications that only increase in dose and number, or an emergency that could have been prevented.

Treating the Cause, Not Just Symptoms:

One of the most significant differences between in-network and our out-of-network care lies in the approach to treatment. In-network providers often focus on symptomatic relief, aiming to address immediate concerns and move on to the next patient quickly. However, out-of-network providers like us dedicate more time to understanding the root causes of your health issues. By spending 30-45 minutes with current patients and over an hour with new patients, we can delve deeper into your medical history, perform comprehensive examinations, and design personalized treatment plans that address the underlying causes of your condition.

Investing in Your Long-Term Health:

Choosing out-of-network care means investing in your long-term well-being. By treating the cause of your health problems, we aim to not only provide relief but also improve your overall health. While in-network care may temporarily alleviate symptoms, it often fails to address the underlying issues. By treating the cause, you are taking proactive steps towards a healthier future . This approach can potentially save you money by reducing the need for expensive medications, lab tests, procedures, and operations that may arise from neglecting the root causes of your condition.

Quality Time and Personalized Care:

When you choose out-of-network care, you are embracing a patient-centered approach that values the quality of time spent with healthcare professionals. Unlike the rushed appointments typically found in in-network settings, we prioritize spending ample time with our patients. This allows us to build a deeper understanding of your unique circumstances, establish a stronger doctor-patient relationship, and tailor treatment plans to suit your specific needs. By providing you with the attention and care you deserve, we strive to empower you to take charge of your health journey.

How is our approach different?

Your doctor spends enough time with you (both in person and afterwards, researching your case) to get to the root of your issues. Using advanced testing that takes more time and knowledge to interpret, as well as the personalizing of your own medical treatment plan that provides you with results you’re satisfied with.

Breaking Free from Network Limitations:

While the notion of in-network care being cheaper persists, it's important to consider the potential hidden costs. In-network providers often operate within a network framework, which can limit their flexibility in terms of treatment options, referrals to specialists, and access to cutting-edge medical technologies. Out-of-network care allows you to explore a wider range of treatment alternatives, ensuring you receive the most appropriate and effective care for your condition. The initial investment in out-of-network care can result in long-term savings and a better overall healthcare experience.

Despite the common belief that in-network care is the only viable option, it is essential to consider the advantages of out-of-network care, especially when it comes to addressing the root causes of your health issues. By investing in your health and choosing personalized care that focuses on treating the cause rather than symptoms, you are taking an active role in your well-being. Although out-of-network care may require an upfront cost, it can lead to long-term relief, improved health outcomes, and potential savings on unnecessary medical expenses. Embrace the opportunity to prioritize your health and break free from the limitations of network-based healthcare.
