What about insurance?
Functional medicine requires time to address the root cause of problems and to practice holistic systems biology medicine. The insurance model relies on high volume, which doesn’t lend itself to thorough evaluation and education. For this reason, Dr. Shirley has chosen to be out of network in order to give patients the necessary time to be comprehensive and detailed.
Routine labwork and medications are directed to regular labs (Quest, LabCorp) and pharmacies (CVS, Walgreens) that are in network with insurances. Superbills can be provided for you to obtain reimbursement from your insurance.
Please consider that most patients don’t reach their annual deductible and end up paying out of pocket after the copay according to their contract with their insurance companies. Dr. Shirley will do her best to keep you healthy, and you will likely see Dr. Shirley a couple of times per year, if that.
