CLINIC POLICIES AND FEES

 

We welcome you to our clinic.  The fees charged in our office are comparable to those charged by other health care providers with similar qualifications and experience.  Our products and laboratory services, however, are significantly discounted compared to other health care providers.

How our clinic is different:

            We recognize that the human body is both a chemical and energetic being and that true health is attained only when all areas of the body, mind and spirit are addressed. 

            We have an emphasis on learning how to obtain and retain health.  We encourage each patient to actively learn more about their health problems or diseases they may have.  Books, videos and articles are recommended to patients at various stages of their learning process. 

            When a patient is with us, we give them hours of our undivided attention, care and love so that we may better be able to discover and address the root cause(s) of what is causing their “dis-ease”. 

Clinic Hours:

All physician-patient encounters are by appointment only.  Our clinic does NOT provide “Walk-in Urgent Care”.  Clinic hours are as follows:

Monday                          1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Tuesday                         1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Wednesday                     1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Thursday                        1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Friday                             1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Saturday                          closed

Sunday                            closed

 

Fees:

Our experience is that the average patient's case is far more complex and complicated than they were a decade ago. Because of the reality of complex metabolic disorders involving multiple organ systems, we've found that best results are obtained when the patient is willing to combine the benefits of both bioenergetic and biochemical modalities.  Please keep in mind the seriousness and complexity of your illness when booking your desired appointment below.  Should you book a short consultation and desire to stay longer and talk to Linnette, you will be asked to schedule another consultation on another day.

Payment policy:

Payment is expected at the time service is rendered.  We accept cash, checks drawn on a Florida Bank, Visa and Mastercard. 

Insurance:

We make a special point with all persons entering our clinic and desiring our services that the treatment received from Beck Natural Medicine is different from a customary physician’s office and thus, is typically not covered by insurance. We would love to accept insurance!  The problem is they don't recognize our services and expertise as reimburseable.

We honor the fact that you have worked hard and paid a great deal of money for your medical insurance.  However, given that our clinic spends hours (versus minutes) on a patient's case,  we are unable to accept the few dollars that an insurance carrier is willing to pay us for our services and expertise.  Should your insurance company be willing to reimburse you for care from a Florida licensed and nationally board certified Acupuncturist, we would be happy to provide you with a superbill that you can send to your insurance carrier.  However, before putting yourself and us through this work, call your insurance company first.  Once we provide you with that superbill, our policy is that all insurance filing and follow-up of any kind is the responsibilty of the insured. We will NOT enter into a dispute with your insurance company over your claim.  That is your responsibility and obligation.

Medicare and Medicaid insurance:

Due to strict governmental regulations regarding natural medicine modalities, that, if broken, would result in fines and prison, we deeply regret that we are unable to take Medicare and/or Meicaid insurance payment.

Appointment cancellations:  

The policy at Beck Natural Medicine is to schedule only one patient to a specific time slot.  This allows Linnette Beck, AP, DOM to devote her full undivided attention to each individual.  Unlike other offices, we do not “cluster-book”, which means we do not schedule multiple patients at the same time and have multiple patients in different rooms at a given time.  By honoring your time as well as ours, we can obtain the maximum benefit during your visit.   

As a courtesy to other patients who are waiting for treatment, we require that you cancel a minimum of 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.  We need this much time because many of our patients are from out of town and need more notice in order to come visit us.

  • In the event of a “no show”, you will be charged for the full appointment time.
  • In the event of a cancellation of less than 48 hours notice, you will be charged for the full appointment time.
  • In the event of a cancellation of greater than 48 hours notice, you will NOT be charged for the full appointment time.

Environmental Sensitivity:

We ask all persons that enter our clinic PLEASE be aware that many of our patients have SEVERE environmental sensitivities.  Therefore, we must request that you take this fact into account whenever you come to our clinic.  Scented products such as perfume, cologne, hair spray, clothes dried with dryer sheets etc and tobacco odor cannot be tolerated by many of our patients.

Commitments after your appointment with us:

We ask that you do NOT have a tight schedule of commitments following your appointment with us.  And if you do, please let us know in advance so we may make the necessary modifications to your appointment experience.  Although most new patient appointments take 2-2.5 hours, they desire to watch videos, review books, get additional testing etc done, some new patients have been known to stay in our clinic for 5 hours!  This is totally acceptable as we consider our clinic a home for education as well as for healing.  Typical established patient appointments take 1-1.5 hours but again, you may desire to "stick around" and that is ok.

Children:

We ask as a courtesy to our other patients that children under 12 remain in the comfort of your home.

Emergencies:

Our clinic does NOT provide walk-in consultation.  We are also not equipped to handle emergency care.  If you are having a life-threatening physical and/or emotional crisis, call 911 and/or go directly to the emergency room. 

Telephone, email and fax orders:

You may leave orders on our voicemail anytime with specific instructions as to when you will pick it up or if you want us to send it via UPS.  Larger orders, however, are best called in during clinic hours or via email (Jamie@becknatmed.com) or via fax (321-259-9089).  

Refunds and Exchanges:

Because of the light, heat and electromagnetic sensitivity and the possibility of tampering, we regred to inform that we are unable to offer refunds or exchanges of our supplements, herbs and homeopathics.  This policy is for your protection as it ensures that you purchase the freshest and safest products possible. We cannot in good conscience resell products that have been out of our custody and control.

Non-patient phone appointment

Non-patient phone appointments are available for those out-of-state persons unable to visit us within our clinic.   Because you are NOT a patient nor are you stepping foot in our clinic to see Linnette Beck, AP, DOM, she is legally restricted on the things she can say and do in order to help you.    However, by consulting with her, you will most likely be exposed to fresh ideas and avenues about your health status as well as insight into the type of health professional that may be able to help you within their own community.  In order to book a non-patient phone appointment, you will need to sign a “non-patient” disclaimer making it clear that you understand you are NOT a patient of Linnette M. Beck, AP, DOM or Beck Natural Medicine but are instead, seeking educational information only.  The cost is $150/ hour pre-paid.  (Note: We are NOT able to offer non-patient appointments to those persons residing in NY.)

If you have any questions that weren't answered in this FAQ, please feel free to discuss them with our staff.
