FAQ

do you accept insurance?

No.  BCIM is considered an "out of network provider".  We prefer for your relationship with your insurance company to stay between the two of you.  We do offer "super bills" for those patients who are seen for Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine.

do I have to be a member?

No. Once you have gone through our initial treatment process, there are two options for being seen at BCIM: pay as you go or maintenance plan. The maintenance plan is offered to those who wish to have long term integrative primary care.

Why is there a range of fees for follow-up visits?

Our follow-up visits are priced on a scale depending on the provider you choose to see and the length of your appointment. To see our PA, a 30 minute appointment is $100 and a 60 minute appointment is $200. To see one of our physicians, a 30 minute appointment is $175 and a 60 minute appointment is $350.

are there any other additional fees?

The above fees are for the times spent with your providers. There are often labs ordered that are through speciality companies to give us a more in depth picture of what is going on. Many of these companies do take insurance and we try hard to get your tests covered. However, there is usually a copay with each of these test, which may range between $80 to $400.

is there any long term commitment?

Commitment to length of treatment applies only to maintenance plan patients. When you enroll in our maintenance plan, the commitment time is one year.

i have medicare, can i still join bcim?

At this time BCIM is unable to see Medicare patients.  Stay tuned, this will change in the near future... 

What if I miss an Appointment?

We understand that sometimes there are unforeseen circumstances that cause you to miss an appointment, however we ask that you give us three days notice for canceling so we can attempt to offer that time to another patient who may need to be seen. If we receive less than three days notice for a cancelled or missed appointment, we will need to charge full price for that appointment before rescheduling. The only exception is for members on the maintenance plan who will be charged $50. We appreciate your understanding.

is the maintenance plan an insurance plan? DO I STILL NEED INSURANCE IF I AM A MEMBER?

No, BCIM maintenance plan is not an insurance plan.  We do recommend you still carry insurance to cover you in instances of hospitalization, surgery, and serious acute care.
