Payment & Info

Payment is made at the time of your visit. We accept personal checks, debit cards, credit cards (Visa or Mastercard), or cash. At the end of each visit, we will provide you with a “superbill” charge sheet to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Dr. Marie Royer and Adrianna Gonzalez, Lac are both able to bill some insurance policies directly.  Please call our office to have us evaluate whether your insurance policy qualifies.  If your insurance provides coverage for acupuncture, chiropractic, naturopathic medicine or massage but requires a physician referral, Dr. Abrams would be happy to do a brief assessment (a 30 minute visit) and refer you to other providers as is appropriate.

NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE

Dr. Aimée Gould Shunney, ND
Insurance companies in California do not generally reimburse for naturopathic services at this time. We do encourage you to still submit a “superbill” (given to you at the end of your visit) as we expect this to change over time.

IF YOU ARE A PATIENT OF DR. ABRAMS, your visits with Dr Shunney can be submitted to insurance as a visit with Dr. Abrams. This will allow those patients with medical insurance (other than Medicare, Medi-cal or HMO’s) to get the same reimbursement rates for Dr. Shunney as they would with any non-preferred provider.

IF YOU ARE NOT A PATIENT OF DR. ABRAMS, your visits with Dr. Shunney are less likely to be covered by insurance. To take advantage of non-preferred provider reimbursement rates, Dr. Abrams is offering a special new patient visit rate of $150 to Dr. Shunney’s patients.
