Patients are responsible for payment at time of service. Dr Lutter is not on any Insurance in-network provider panels. Not contracting with Insurance companies provides several advantages that greatly improve the quality of care. Firstly, new patients can usually be seen within 1-2 weeks, which can be critical to stabilize acutely ill patients and prevent the need for higher levels of care. Secondly, treatment plans are individually tailored to each patient based upon specific goals rather than Insurance company mandates. Finally, complete confidentiality is ensured as personal information is not sent to Insurance providers to obtain permission to treat.
For patients who do wish to use their Insurance benefits, I provide a statement after payment for services received that can be submitted to insurance for out of network benefits.
