TUCSON NATUROPATHIC FAMILY MEDICINE, PLLC

What can I expect from an appointment with Dr. Thatcher?

Insurance:
I am considered an out-of-network provider for most insurance companies in Arizona. Payment for services are rendered to me at the time of service. Your receipt is a superbill which you can then submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Check with your particular insurance company on their out-of-network policy.


Your lab work is generally covered by your insurance company when their in-network lab is used. Check with your particular plan.


A low-cost, cash-pay lab service is used when labs are required but are not covered by insurance or if you do not carry insurance.


Flexible spending/HSA accounts:
Many flexible spending accounts will cover my services and products as well as many HSA accounts. Please check with your specific plan.


Seeing a Naturopathic doctor is unlike most other doctors you have seen. The first appointment is a complete, detailed history and gathering of information. Your current medications and supplements are evaluated, labs may be ordered and any pertinent physical exams may be performed. This first appointment usually averages 90 minutes to 2 hours in length. The second visit is typically 1-2 weeks after the initial appointment. This gives the doctor time to analyze your case; review any labs that have been returned; and design an individual, detailed treatment plan. The second visit consists of reviewing any labs with the patient, patient education, answering questions and discussing the proposed treatment plan and suggestions made by the doctor to decide on the best course of therapy. The patient is an integral partner with the doctor in their health, wellness, and recovery so every effort is made to include the patient in these decisions. This second visit typically lasts 60-90 minutes.


Subsequent follow up appointments typically last 30-60 minutes depending on the situation and the depth of the issue.
