Out of town patients are welcome!
A large portion of our patient base is from outside of the Austin area. You simply need to be seen in person in Austin, Texas for an initial appointment in order to establish a doctor-patient relationship. After the initial appointment, all follow up appointments may be conducted by phone if you wish.
For our patient’s convenience, we have established a relationship with a nearby hotel and they are able to offer our patients discounted rates for overnight stays in Austin.
Our practice does not accept any form of medical insurance or Medicare/Medicaid. However, we provide you with an itemized bill with traditional ICD-10 codes and CPT codes so that you may easily file a claim with your insurance company yourself.
To simplify the process, we recommend calling your insurance company prior to your visit to find out about what your specific plan will cover. We’re more than happy to provide insurance codes in our patient portal for registered new patients.
At Austin UltraHealth we offer a variety of lab testing from conventional labs to state of the art functional medicine testing. Please read below about the different types of lab testing we offer.
Conventional Lab Testing
Conventional labs are those that you are likely already familiar with. These are the labs such as thyroid testing, vitamin D and cholesterol, to name a few. Dr. Myers is different than your conventional doctor in that she orders many more lab tests and then she interprets them differently than a conventional doctor. Dr. Myers listens to your symptoms while looking at optimal levels rather than normal ranges. There are two ways of paying for conventional lab testing:
Conventional Lab Testing Option 1: Submit through your Insurance
We have a partnership with Clinical Pathology Labs (CPL) and they have a location within our clinic. We allow you to submit through your insurance. If you live in Texas and have good insurance coverage, we recommend allowing our CPL to submit these tests through your insurance. This means that Austin UltraHealth will not collect payment for these tests. CPL is the largest lab in Texas and covered by most insurance companies. We recommend calling your insurance provider prior to your initial appointment.
Conventional Lab Testing Option 2: Prepay to Austin UltraHealth
Austin UltraHealth’s partnership with CPL allows us to get labs at a very discounted rate and we pass this discount on to you. If you have minimal insurance coverage, a high deductible or live out of state, we recommend this option. Austin UltraHealth will collect payment for these labs and because of the highly discounted rate you may not file for reimbursement with your insurance provider.
Functional Medicine Lab Testing
Our practice uses high-quality, cutting-edge functional lab tests in order to get the most accurate information about how your body is working and to uncover the root cause of your illness. These tests may or may not be covered by your insurance company and therefore we have you paid our office for the labs and we pay the lab company directly on your behalf. At check out, we will provide you with the necessary paper work and codes in order for you to file for reimbursement from your insurance provider. You may also use funds from a Health Savings Account (HSA) to cover the costs of these tests.
