Become a Patient
At Rahav Wellness, we want you to feel comfortable before embarking on your journey with us. We want you to understand how the care we provide is different. We help you address chronic health concerns by addressing the causes of illness, rather than just the symptoms. We work collaboratively as a team to help you achieve your health goals.
To help you understand what we do, and how we do it, we encourage you to fully explore the educational information we have created for you.
To become a patient, follow the steps outlined below.
How to Become a New Patient
STEP THREE: Once you follow the link from the confirmation email you’ll receive, you can log into the patient portal to securely complete our new patient intake form under the Questionnaires tab on the portal.
STEP FOUR: Once your intake form is received, our staff will call you to schedule your new patient appointment.
It is your responsibility to arrive on time for your appointment. In respect for the following patients, all appointments will terminate at the scheduled time. You are expected to pay for the entire scheduled time, regardless of your arrival time.
If you have questions regarding a new patient appointment with us, you may call our office at 646.503.5202 to speak with our staff. We’ll be happy to go over any of these items with you.
Our practice does not accept any form of medical insurance or Medicare/Medicaid. However, we provide you with an itemized bill with traditional ICD-10 codes and CPT codes so that you may easily file a claim with your insurance company yourself.
To simplify the process, we recommend calling your insurance company prior to your visit to find out about what your specific plan will cover. We’re more than happy to provide insurance codes in our patient portal for registered new patients.
We will provide you with your diagnosis and test codes and a receipt so that you may file for reimbursement with your insurance provider if you choose to do so.
We have found that some insurance companies request additional information that is very specific and specialized to that provider. Given the large number of discrepancies between what each company requires and that time needed to meet those requests, we do not assist with insurance reimbursement above and beyond the diagnosis and tests codes and receipt given at check out.
Conventional Lab Testing
Conventional labs are those that you are likely already familiar with. These are the labs such as thyroid testing, vitamin D and cholesterol, to name a few. Dr. Rahav is different than your conventional doctor in that she orders Functional Medicine lab test and interprets them differently than a conventional doctor would. Dr. Rahav listens to your symptoms while looking at optimal levels rather than normal ranges.
Functional Medicine Lab Testing
Our practice uses high-quality, cutting-edge functional lab tests in order to get the most accurate information about how your body is working and to uncover the root cause of your illness. Most of the lab work that Dr. Rahav orders is covered by insurance although, some may not be. At checkout, we will provide you with the necessary paperwork and codes in order for you to file for reimbursement from your insurance provider. You may also use funds from a Health Savings Account (HSA) to cover the costs of these tests.
Medical Financing Solutions
At Rahav Wellness, we understand that finances play a large role in the medical decisions we make for ourselves and loved ones. Losing function is not simply about the costs of treatment. When we can’t function we lose our productivity and our ability to be self-sufficient. Reclaiming health is an investment and we have partnered with a third party to make this possible for those who would not otherwise be able to afford private health care. We want to ensure that every patient who wants functional medicine in their plan of care has access to the medical treatment that he or she needs.
That’s why we offer, through a third party financing company, affordable payment solutions including zero and low percent financing options that do not require a down payment. Click here to learn more and to apply for financing.
