I'm having some major health concerns lately and I think it's time I need to get seen. I'm choosing to find myself a naturopath doctor. I've found a couple in the area after lots and lots of looking. I'm hoping to give them a call after the weekend and set up an appt ASAP. Some information I'm curious about is how bad is this gonna be on the bank account??? Can anyone give me an idea on what some average prices are for office visits, or consultations? I'm sure prices vary by region but it would be nice to have some sort of an idea just so I'm not too shocked.
And from what I have known, any type of "natural" doctor is not covered under any insurance... is this still correct? Are there any loopholes in the health care system or are there any special kinds of insurance that accept alternative doctors? At the moment I don't have any insurance what so ever :( But another question is that I'm pretty much 100% sure I will be getting blood work done. Is it at all possible that at least the bloodwork would be able to get covered by insurance? And if not what are some price ranges or estimates for some basic bloodwork?
Any information anybody has would be sooooo greatly appreciated. Yes, I plan on asking all these questions when I make my phone calls, I'm just trying to be a little informed ahead of time, ya know.
I guess if it comes down to it, I may pick up some basic insurance to get me into see a regular doctor... get my bloodwork done... see what kind of conclusions they come to... and then take my info over to a naturopathic doc for some guidance and a treatment plan!
So if anyone has any input what so ever to help me out as far as what I should be planning to spend when going to a naturopath please let me know.
Much thanks in advance!!!
