This is my first post on the insurance side of things. This question has been probably previously discussed but I couldnât find anything on it in my quick search - It kind of falls between natural and insurance. I have been investigating DAN practitioners. I just now found out they exist from a link another member of this site recommended. DAN practitioners subscribe to a natural treatment plan for autistic children via supplements, digestive enzymes, diet etc. This is perfect for us & our difficult child does not do well on a medication RX. The side effects typically outweigh any help they provide. She has done well on a restrictive diet and supplements etc but we are seeing a backslide and need someone to help us heal her and not just patch her up all the time.. A DR THAT BELIEVES IN A NATURAL APPROACH! WE HAVE FINALLY FOUND THE RIGHT DR FOR MY difficult child - . the one I chose is a MD in psy AND a MD neurology AND believes in a natural approach AND specializes in ADHD, Autism etc. and that such things as leaky gut DOES have something to do with all her problems. SIGN US UP! We can be packed in 10 minutes. Now the catch. The heaven sent dr I found charges by the MINUTE¦. To the tune of about 220/hr Does not work with insurance and you are required to have on file an open ended credit card! So now I have to be independently wealthy to get the help for my difficult child she needs. :Hot Head: anic: by the way another dr that I really liked has a wait list that you will be CONSIDERED for an appointment in MARCH OF 2006! Didn't even get to the $ part of the conversation! To my questions¦ has anyone gone to see a DAN DR? Heard about them .. good bad or indifferent? I know it somewhat varies with insurance coâs but as a general rule do they cover things like metal testing, stool sample testing etcâ¦ the not mainlined tests. The receptionist told me avg group of tests run about $1,000! What are the key words I need to use when calling the insurance co? I donât want to be red flagged or anything like that! Any help on all this would be greatly appreciated!
