Scheduling & Visits

What should I expect at my foundational assessment?

During your foundational assessment extended visit with Dr. Clemma Nash, MD, we will review your medical history and identify areas of imbalance and dysfunction. After this comprehensive functional assessment of your health, you will have increased awareness to help you make more informed decisions as well as a personalized health plan. Dr. Clemma Nash, MD will discuss additional testing recommendations as well as follow-up appointments at this time. Additionally, with the foundational assessment, you will have a virtual visit with our health coach and a consultation with our mind-body skills expert.

What's the cost of the foundational assessment?

The foundational assessment is $695.

What Are The Restrictions On Virtual Doctor's Visits?

We can virtually see anyone who resides in MN or WI. All follow up consultations will be conducted by phone or virtually using our secure video channel.

Email Etiquette

Patients have unlimited email access with our UltraVitalityMD provider team. However, if an email question or request is deemed by one of our staff to be too complicated or involved for a response via email they may, at their discretion, require that the patient schedule a virtual visit.

Scheduling & Cancellations

There is a 24-hour cancellation policy for all appointments with an UltraVitalityMD doctor, health coach, or team member. Canceling within 24-hours will result in a $75 charge to the credit card on file.

No-shows: If you do not show up to an appointment without notifying the specific person you have an appointment with either via email or by changing the appointment using the online scheduling tool on the patient portal, you will be charged $150 for Dr. Clemma Nash, MD, and $75 for health and nutrition coach and mind body skills educator.

Billing & Insurance

We Are Not A Conventional Primary Care Physician

We do not provide primary care services for patients and require that each patient identify a primary care provider whom they are established with and have seen within the past 6 months. Acute care concerns should be addressed to your primary care physician.

It is essential to note the following, however:

  • We do not fulfill an insurance company’s requirement for an in-network primary care physician as we are not in-network with any insurance plan.
  • We will make every effort to make you fully aware of any additional lab fees that may be incurred and to give you the opportunity to choose which lab tests you feel comfortable paying for.
  • We do not have a 24-hour answering service and do not take calls on weekends. If you need to be seen urgently or have a medical emergency you would need to visit an ER or urgent care center.

We Do Not Bill Insurance Companies

The cost of any services provided by UltraVitalityMD which are not included in the episode of care fee will be billed to you directly.

Non-UltraVitalityMD medical expenses such as lab tests and prescription medications may be covered by a member’s health insurance plan per that plan’s rules.

UltraVitalityMD will not submit a medical claim to insurance on your behalf. We cannot assist you with claim resolution for our services.

We will provide you with a detailed billing summary that you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Depending on your plan's rules, there may be procedures or lab tests that are not covered.

About Lab Tests

  • A lab review with an Advanced Biomarker Panel is an integral part of the Foundational Assessment. Options for reduced fee lab testing will be provided at the time of enrollment for the Foundational Assessment. 
  • Some lab tests we offer as part of our functional medicine testing program may not be covered by insurance and in these cases, you will be charged a fee for a particular test by the lab or through UltraVitalityMD.
  • The specific tests ordered will be personalized to you based on your initial evaluation with an UltraVitalityMD doctor and may include blood, saliva, urine, or stool testing.
  • We will make every effort to make you fully aware of any additional lab fees that may be incurred and to give you the opportunity to choose which lab tests you feel comfortable paying for.
  • You are under no obligation to purchase any specialty testing.
  • Should any lab results indicate you may need further traditional medical testing you will be directed to continue your care with your primary care physician or relevant specialist for further evaluation and treatment. 
  • At-home test kits: If a lab test kit is mailed to you by UltraVitalityMD, you will be charged the day the kit is mailed.
  • If your particular insurance company only pays for blood work done at a particular lab facility like LabCorp, you must inform us of this in advance of having blood work done. Most insurance plans cover labs done by major national labs – Labs other than Quest or LabCorp may be used by UltraVitalityMD because of their favorable pricing policies for patients.
    Certain lab tests are included in the pricing of your program as we see them as essential to optimal outcomes for you. If the lab test isn't included in your program, you will be informed and your are under not obligation to purchase.
