CORONA VIRUS TELEHEALTH UPDATES:
All of Dr. Firisin's contracted insurance companies are currently covering telehealth until 5/31/2020. The same copays, deductibles and fees apply.
FOR COVID SCREENING and TREATMENT patient cost sharing may be waved for some insurers.
In Network:Dr. Firisin is currently participating with Cigna and Anthem BCBS of CT, Oxford Health Plan and Connecticare. Copays and Deductibles are due at the time of your visit.
Out of Network:Payment is due at the time of your visit. In some cases, Coastal Natural Medicine can provide a "superbill" that you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement, however, payment is due at the time of the visit. In addition, some HSA or Flex Spending Accounts may be used toward your fees.
Medicare/Medicaid/Tricare: Dr. Firisin is NOT a Medicare Provider and as such all Medicare patients, regardless of supplemental coverage, are considered self pay patients. Unfortunately, these government insurances do not currently cover Naturopathic doctors. This includes Medicare commercial plans as well. Medicaid MAY cover labs ordered by a naturopathic doctor. MediCARE will NOT cover labs ordered by a naturopathic doctor. It is helpful to provide Dr. Firisin with a primary care doctor that she can work with to order labs when needed.
We also encourage you to contact your state and local representatives to request naturopathy coverage in your healthcare, every voice counts!
