FAQ:

Why did WholeKids start charging a fee?

Insurance reimbursement has not kept pace with the increasing cost of providing medical care. In order to continue to provide the integrative model of care and spend the time necessary with patients, the decision was made to institute a nominal yearly fee. 

We chose to institute this fee to avoid having to stop accepting some or all health insurance plans, raise our cash fees, and/or increase the number of patients we see. Increasing the number of patients that we see decreases our time with patients and reduces the opportunity to provide an integrative care experience.

What is the cost of the plan?

$100/one child/year

$160/two children/year

$200/three children or more/year

The fee is $8/month/child or less depending on the number of children you have. 

Fees paid by December 31st of every calendar year will garner a 10% discount for the following year. 

How is the fee collected?

Currently established patients pay by December or January.  All new patients are expected to pay the yearly fee at the time of their first appointment and then yearly in January.

What if I join the practice in the middle of the year? Do I owe the whole year’s fee?

The annual fee will be prorated by quarter of joining the practice. The following will apply:

Please note that this pro-rated fee schedule is only applicable for NEW patients.

Does the fee apply to self-pay patients?

Yes. The fee applies to all patients. This fee is not covered by basic patient care charges.
