Question 1: If I have Medicare or Tricare, how much will is cost me to come to The Clinic?
Answer 1: If you have Medicare or Tricare, since Dr. Henkin is a Medicare and Tricare participant, all clinic fees, except deductibles, are covered by your part B insurance. If you have Medigap Insurance, this covers most fees at The Clinic.
Question 2: Will my present health insurance cover my costs at The Clinic if I do not have Medicare?
Answer 2: Since all tests and procedures at The Clinic have been deemed medically necessary your personal health insurer should honor all costs of your visit here. However, the amount of this coverage will vary dependent upon your plan, your premiums and your deductibles. Depending upon your coverage you may come to The Clinic as “in-plan” or “out-of- plan”. Usually, insurance companies will pay a lesser amount to go “out-of-plan” than “in-plan”. The practice of The Clinic has been recognized as “medically necessary”. We have been designated “an accepted medical practice” by the Office of Personal Management of the US government. Blue Cross/Blue Shield has approved all tests performed at The Clinic as necessary for diagnosis and treatment of these disorders; however, The Clinic does not participate with Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Fees at The Clinic are dependent upon your problem and the need to perform those specific tests necessary to establish your diagnosis. You may ask about a payment plan to cover your care at The Clinic if you live in Washington, DC or the surrounding area in Maryland or Virginia.
Question 3: Is The Clinic considered a specialized service?
Answer 3: The Clinic is an extremely specialized facility which offers you clinical testing and treatment which is not available at any other facility in the world. The Clinic depends upon specialized personnel and equipment which are expensive to maintain and operate. The reagents, chemicals and other expendables required for your care at The Clinic are expensive. The tests required to measure your biochemical changes are complex and expensive to perform. In addition, a great deal of time, effort and expense went into the development of each special test required to understand the cause and initiate the treatment of your disorder. Costs for these services continue to rise due to their unique and specialized character.
Question 4: What are the fees at The Clinic and what do they cover with respect to my sensory dysfunction?
Answer 4: Fees for services at The Clinic vary but cover your complete initial care at The Clinic. This initial fee is for an all-inclusive series of services. This fee includes the four basic initial services at The Clinic: (1) initial complete evaluation of your sensory dysfunction; (2) reevaluation of the results of this complete evaluation; (3) treatment based upon your personal complete evaluation; (4) monitoring of your treatment (based upon your personal treatment plan) after you leave The Clinic. After you are treated at The Clinic you will contact The Clinic at regular, specified time periods by use of FAX, email and/or telephone. Using these contacts you will communicate with The Clinic about your progress on your treatment plan. Based upon your responses changes in your treatment plan may be made so that your responses to treatment can be maximized.
