Are your services covered by Alberta Health Care?
No, Naturopathic Doctors are not covered under the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP). However, most extended health benefit plans do include coverage for Naturopathic Doctors. Check with your insurance provider for details on the amount covered by your benefits plan.
Do you offer direct billing?
Yes, both I offer direct billing for several insurance companies at both clinics. Feel free to contact us to confirm whether your insurance is one we are able to direct bill. If your insurance does not cover 100% of the visit, you will be responsible for paying the remaining balance at the end of your visit.
Can you order lab tests?
Yes, Naturopathic Doctors are able to order lab testing, however the fees for lab tests are not covered by Alberta Health Care, so patients have to pay out of pocket for the testing. If lab tests are recommended, we will discuss the fees and reasons for testing ahead of time.
