About Health Insurance with Revive Atlanta:
Revive Atlanta MD accepts most major insurance companies for our Primary Care appointments only. Our doctors are committed to the functional medicine model and spend quality time with each patient to identify the underlying causes of symptoms. We have found that insurance companies do not compensate our doctors for the time it takes them to do their due diligence in this area- and therefore can not stay in-network with insurance companies for our Functional & Integrative patients. Please call our office for more information.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do you determine the amount of time spent with a patient?
Time constraints do little to benefit either the physician or the patient being seen. As such, we prefer to determine the necessary allotment of time according to each patient’s specific needs. When we give adequate time to our patients, both parties involved can rest assured that we are achieving high-quality care in a collaborative setting.
What do you mean by “functional and integrative medicine”?
Functional medicine is a vibrant approach to evaluating, preventing, and treating complicated chronic medical diseases. Also regarded as a cutting edge medical approach, functional medicine is at the forefront of new treatment and testing discoveries. As such, some of our procedures and treatments are considered newer, not yet “standard,” and therefore may not be recognized by larger insurance plans.
Why would insurance cover other providers’ treatments and tests but not ReviveAtlanta MD’s?
Most insurance companies function in accordance with procedure codes specifically aimed at “sick care.” Functional medicine, on the other hand, encompasses general wellness in addition to sick care, meaning not all insurance procedures are yet equipped to cover our services.
What if ReviveAtlanta MD is out-of-network for my insurance?
As an out-of-network provider, ReviveAtlanta MD has greater flexibility in performing multiple procedures or providing a variety of treatments — all in one appointment. We will also work with you to determine the payment plan that best suits your current financial capability.
