Our lab panels for the EIC programs are not your typical annual lab panels provided by your primary care physician. Our custom Functional Medicine specialty laboratory panels are 10+ pages; which show the earliest detection of disease processes, some clinically relevant DNA testing, and much more.
While Dr. Hoffarth does not accept insurance for his services, the lab panels cost is strictly processed through your insurance and billed separately from BioFIT Medicine. We also offer a cash pay option with significant cost savings to you, if you choose to pay for you labs without going through your insurance. Since we opened in 2014, the laboratory services we utilize have made this extraordinarily competitive. As long as you have some type of non-HRA type of insurance plan (regardless of the deductible), most patients pay little to no out-of-pocket cost for lab services.
Dr. Hoffarth will also provide what's called a "Superbill" after each visit. This provides the necessary medical codes needed by your insurance company to seek any reimbursement for out-of-pocket costs (if applicable to your insurance plan). You may also use a designated FSA or HSA for most out-of-pocket costs, as well. When submitting your Superbill to your insurance company, feedback from our patients tend to range regarding reimbursement. Some insurance plans reimburse as much as 60-100% of your out-of-network expenses; while some do not reimburse for any. Individual insurance carriers will differ.
