Your initial visit with Dr. B. will be two hours in length. The consultation fee for this visit is $500, for which you will receive you a detailed receipt with medical
coding. Follow-up visit fees are $250 and usually last a full hour with the doctor.

As Dr. B. is a licensed, board-certified physician, many insurances companies will reimburse according to the coding provided for general medical care, which is included in the visit.

You may submit the invoice along with a signed claims form and send it to your health insurance plan for reimbursement; depending on your agreement, you may receive up to 100% reimbursement. You can also definitely use the invoice as a receipt for your Schedule A, Medical and Dental Expenses. You may also choose to have a Health Savings Account to quality for health care tax deductions.

Dr. B. does not 'participate' in any health plans, and is considered an "out-of-network" physician. In-network physicians are mostly required by contract to see patients for the standard period of time (about 7 minutes) and using only standard-of-care medicine (drugs, blood tests, CT scans/radiology and surgery).
