We strive for your experience at Rising Health Clinic to be an excellent one. In order to achieve that goal we want you to be fully informed of our policies.
In order to keep our fees reasonable, we require full payment at the time of service for all office visits, supplements, and any treatment performed at our clinic.
Why We're A Cash Based Clinic:
Insurance is designed to function as a mediator and advocate for patient, to ensure that doctors aren’t overcharging for their services. This means insurance companies can set time limits, pricing limits, restrict treatment options for certain conditions, etc. At Rising Health, we believe we need more than 10-15 minutes with our patients, and strive to provide a higher quality service for our patients overall. At the end of the day, we work for you, not your insurance company.
Most of our providers do not participate or are providers of any insurance company. Rising Health Clinic does not submit insurance claims on the patient's behalf. Please contact your insurance company to obtain all the information as well as how to submit your claim for reimbursement.
Rising Health Clinic will provide a reimbursement form that you may turn in upon request. Rising Health Clinic Charges $25 per hour for any reimbursement form entry that you did not request at the time of service. Patients should not assume that the insurance company will reimburse them fully for their office visit.
**You may utilize your insurance plan to cover any laboratory work that may be ordered on your behalf.
Rising Health Clinic is open Monday – Thursday from 9 am to 5 pm and Fridays from 9 am - 3 pm.

Patients should maintain a primary care physician for any emergencies and for their routine medical needs. All patients are required to have a primary care physician. Our clinic does not provide on-call after-hour services and we do not provide emergency medical service or admit or care for patients in the hospital.
Email correspondence is not appropriate for urgent medical needs and it is not intended for medical advice or diagnosis.
E-mail or “Patient Portal” communication that requires more than 5 minutes of attention from your physician or medical staff will be subject to a fee.
Any time up to 5 minutes the staff spends on responding to messages to patients is free.
Any correspondence that requires more than 10 minutes will be sent back to the patient with a request of an office visit with the Doctor.
All emails will be responded to within 72 hrs. If you need an immediate response or medical attention, email is not the right communication tool. We suggest that you schedule an office visit or phone appointment with one of our physicians.
Letter and Correspondence:
At times, we are asked to fill out forms for work, insurance companies, other physicians, etc. In order to comply with these requests in a timely manner, we charge a minimum of $25 and they can vary depending on the size of the charts or documentation to fill out.
Any prescription refill request should be done directly to your pharmacy. Please allow 48 to 72 hours for processing.
Any NEW prescription(s) will require an office visit with no exceptions. Please make sure you schedule your routine appointments ahead of time to avoid a delay in getting your prescription renewed. You are responsible for ensuring continuity of treatment, and we ask you to be in charge of your prescription’s schedule. We have many patients who need the same thing that you do so out of fairness we answer and refill on a first come first serve basis. Address refills at least a week before you need them.
