Frequently Asked Questions
What is Naturopathic Medicine? What does the training entail? GREAT QUESTIONS! A Naturopathic doctor is educated to identify the cause of illness through extensive patient interviews and lab work. They empower their patients to actually heal using effective, safe and gentle therapies. For more information, check out our blog.
Do you guys see pediatric patients? We do not see patients eight years and under.
Does RFWC take insurance? Not at this time.
Does RFWC offer payment plans? No. Full payment is due at time of service.
Does the appointment fee cover labs and supplements? No, those are additional costs.
Does RFWC offer a needs-based discount? Yes, we do hold discounted, abbreviated office visits one Saturday per month for eligible, low income patients. There is no sliding scale for regular appointments. Call to inquire.
Can patients use their HSA/FSA spending accounts at RFWC? Usually but it is not a guarantee. We encourage you to talk with your health insurance provider to ensure that naturopathic services (MCC code: 8011) and dispensary items (MCC code: 5912) are HSA/FSA eligible.
Why do some Naturopaths go by RND and others ND? Up until 2013, anyone in Colorado could call themselves a ‘Naturopath’. Problem is, some Naturopathy programs are 6-week online courses and others are 4-5 year doctoral degrees from accredited institutions with cadaver labs, science curriculum, clinical hours, two sets of board exams…the whole kit and caboodle. YIKES! A big difference that needed to be clarified for the safety of the general public.
Back to the question, RND stands for ‘Registered Naturopathic Doctor’. These days, no one can call themselves a Naturopathic Doctor unless they are registered with the state so as far as we are concerned, RND and ND are synonymous.
