Frequently asked questions
Do you accept health insurance?
We do not bill insurance for our services, but we will provide you with a “superbill” which you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. It is your responsibility to check guidelines on what will be reimbursed.
Flexible payment plans can be arranged.
Do you draw labs?
When labs are necessary, we will provide you with referrals through our direct relationships with various labs. We will send a requisition that allows you to schedule a draw at your convenience.
What supplements do you recommend?
We regularly recommend a variety of supplements from certified and qualified companies. We look for products that are made with superior ingredients and have been extensively researched and tested. We look for highly effective supplements in therapeutic doses to support your body’s metabolism and nutrient absorption. We are happy to discuss specific supplement recommendations as part of a functional medicine consultation, ensuring you are educated about the best product for you.
How much should I expect to invest on lab testing?
Functional Medicine care will typically require in-depth comprehensive laboratory analysis using both conventional and functional lab testing. Please be aware that insurance will likely not cover many of the labs ordered from specialized companies like Genova, Diagnostic Solutions, DUTCH, and Cyrex. Testing is something that will be discussed in detail at your initial appointment and report of findings with recommendations made on an individual basis. Most patients invest an average of $400-1000 in initial testing. These lab testing fees are not included in the care plan price.
Is chiropractic safe?
Chiropractic care is very safe. According to the American Chiropractic Association, the risk of negative effect is only 1 in 5 million! This is far less than traditional medical procedures. The benefits of chiropractic far outweigh the risk- and the improved quality of life speaks for itself. Read more about our Chiropractic Services and talk to Dr. Fahey or Dr. Rasmussen if you have concerns.
What is that popping sound?
Your bones are not cracking! The gapping of a joint during an adjustment creates a small temporary air pocket. Variance of pressure and nitrogen gas release during manipulation creates the pops and cracks you hear. No damage occurs and it is safe and natural!
Are Chiropractors doctors?
Just like any post-graduate doctoral program (i.e., medical, osteopathic, dental), Chiropractic school is a rigorous 4-year program that meets the same educational criteria. Doctors of Chiropractic (D.C.s) are licensed physicians who meet state and national standards, including board exams and continuing education. Chiropractors are primary providers, similar to your family physician. You do not need a referral from a medical doctor to see a chiropractor.
Why should I see a Chiropractor?
While very effective for acute care (Think: that pinch in your back), Chiropractic is a pillar of wellness. Just as we see a dentist regularly for our teeth, an optometrist for our eyes… a regular Chiropractic checkup on your spine and joints is part of a healthy routine. Routine wellness visits keep you in optimal health.
Does The Facility offer financing?
We do not offer traditional financing for Functional Medicine and Physical Medicine care plans. However, the following in-house options are available:
One payment Option: Patient pays one upfront payment with a 10% care discount
Payment plan: Patient pays 50% of care upon first visit, and the remaining balance will be automatically billed to the card on file 30 days following the initial visit
Can appointments be done over the phone or through video conference?
Yes. We offer telehealth visits. Appointments with Dr. Rasmussen or Kate can be completed over the phone or face-to-face through video software.
How does the lab testing work?
The majority of lab testing is typically done at home, but blood work will also need to be completed at a phlebotomy center. We will direct you to the appropriate clinic depending on the labs that are ordered. Many of the tests have shipping included in the cost of the kits, otherwise you will be responsible for the fee. You will get full instructions on how to complete the tests. Payment is made either directly to the lab, or through The Facility according to our negotiated practitioner pricing.
