Dr. Reardon accepts all major credit cards, as well as cash and checks. She also accepts Health Savings Account (HSA) debit cards. Monthly flat fee wellness plans and packages are also available.
All cancelations require a 24 hour notice. Full visit charges will apply for notice given less than 24 hours before the assigned appointment time.
Dr. Reardon works directly for her patients and not for insurance companies. For this reason, she does not accept insurance in lieu of payment for her services. Our current insurance model prevents her from offering the in-depth integrative consultations that she believes are best for achieving optimal health results.
While Dr. Reardon doesn’t accept insurance, she is happy to provide you with the appropriate documentation and properly coded forms for you to submit to your insurance company. Most patients with out-of-network benefits, who satisfy their deductible, are reimbursed. Her practice is also quite ideal for those with high deductibles or Medical Savings Plans (MSA) or Health Savings Plan (HSA), as she offers discounted labs and supplements through special vendor relationships.
Dr. Reardon encourage her patients to keep catastrophic major medical coverage, and offers an innovative direct primary care model “membership” in lieu of insurance for day to day visits. Patients who wish to have long term, consistent access to her via a flat bi-annual or annual fee are invited to learn more about this option on the first visit.
Additional Costs/Lab Testing
All lab fees are additional and can be billed to your insurance company directly by the provider. Our practice uses Quest Diagnostics and Clinical Pathology Laboratories (CPL) for insurance reimbursable lab testings. To find the lab location most convenient for you please visit Quest’s Austin page here or CPL‘s Austin locations here.
Many routine lab tests are offered at a deeply discounted rate for cash through CPL. Often patients with high deductibles may choose the cash price as well, as it is often much less out of pocket than the insurance charge. Many times the savings on lab testing and fees is enough to cover Dr. Reardon’s fees. For more information on this, including prices for the most used lab panels, please see our outline Lab Pricing Explained.
Dr. Reardon also offers other laboratory testing that may or may not be covered or reimbursable by your insurance company. They include genetic testing, nutritional testing, microbiome “gut” testing, specific hormone/endocrine testing, immune testing and more.
Dr. Reardon has seen the power of the right quality supplements for some of her patients; however, she recognizes that it’s often overwhelming to stand in the store supplement aisle faced with so many choices.
For this reason she offers some of the more commonly recommended and important supplements to her patients in-office, as well as via online ordering. She DOES NOT promote her own line of supplements, nor does she align herself with one particular supplier over another.
There is absolutely no obligation to purchase supplements from her office. Her focus is on helping you find the tools that you need to feel better.
Please call your pharmacy to refill all prescriptions. If you have no more refills left your pharmacy will contact our office.
