MEDICAL

PALM’s doctors take a comprehensive, functional approach to your well-being and use in-depth assessments to diagnose your health risks and the root cause of symptoms and conditions. Not only are they top specialists in their fields, but they also understand the relationship between the mind and body and are skilled in both conventional and complementary healing methods. Every provider on PALM’s unique multispecialty team is trained in a functional and integrative medicine approach.

Our providers spend time with you, listening to your history. We develop whole-person strategies that address all the factors that influence complex, chronic disease and long-term well-being. So whether you are focused on prevention and optimizing your health, or treating an existing condition, our programs and treatments are customized to support you each step of the way.

PALM providers use a functional medicine approach, which starts by asking in-depth questions about your health history from birth to present. Once they understand how you have arrived where you are today, they create your personalized approach to optimizing your health.

Your doctor will then decide which assessments to use to develop a deep understanding of you. This may include fitness assessments, personality tests, imaging, and nutrition assessments. They then analyze the intricate interactions among the biological, environmental, emotional, and lifestyle factors influencing your health. When appropriate, our physicians recommend specialty lab testing (e.g. genetics, hormones, food sensitivities, inflammatory triggers, cholesterol particle size, nutritional status) to find the sources of ill functioning that can be leveraged to improve your health. This comprehensive set of assessments allows us to tailor effective programs, measure your progress, and ensure that you receive personalized care.

Yes, PALM Health physicians will recommend and refer you to specialists of excellence, who are selected from an extensive network of medical professionals.

Functional medicine is a powerful tool for diagnosing the root cause of illness that is based on the understanding that lifestyle, environmental, and genetic factors can influence long-term health and the progression of chronic diseases that are on the rise in the 21st century. Our providers use functional medicine to determine the underlying causes of chronic conditions in order to treat the root problem and not merely treat the symptoms of the disease.

Whereas functional medicine is the diagnostic approach our providers use, integrative medicine is the therapeutic approach they use to implement a personalized plan for healing. Integrative medicine combines the best of conventional medicine with complementary therapies. At PALM, we make it simple for our providers to apply an integrative approach by combining access to a variety of conventional and complementary services under one roof.

Our medical providers specialize in primary care, family medicine, functional and integrative medicine, neurology, preventive and rehabilitative cardiology, rheumatology, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and chiropractic care.

Yes. We offer family medicine visits, pediatric visits, and pediatric neurology visits, or we may refer to outside pediatricians and specialists who see children and young adults depending on the needs and age of your child. Our physicians commonly address digestive disorders, ADHD, allergies, depression, anxiety, and other conditions in children and young adults. A Navigator can pair you with the best provider for your family.

Yes, we encourage you to maintain your relationship with your current primary care doctor if you are happy with his or her service. If you receive medical consults at PALM, we will work with your primary care provider to ensure that you are receiving the best, most coordinated care possible.

Yes! In today’s fragmented health system, it is essential that you have single point access to all your medical records. You can be secure in knowing that your records from multiple facilities and providers are stored in a single confidential location where potentially lifesaving records can be rapidly accessed or transferred in a medical emergency.

INSURANCE

We do not accept insurance. Depending on your membership level, your program may include your medical visits and services. If the services are not included, you are responsible for paying each service based on our fee schedule.

Routine labs submitted through Quest or LabCorp will be paid by your insurance according to your plan. Specialty labs are typically not covered by insurance. PALM is not able to provide Insurance Correspondence Forms (Superbills) for the majority of specialty labs. Before your specialty lab, you will receive a billing acknowledgment form to clarify the fees that you are responsible for paying at the time of service.

For certain services, we can provide Insurance Correspondence Forms, known as “Superbills.” The forms include the necessary diagnostic and treatment codes so that you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. However, we cannot guarantee repayment even with the Insurance Correspondence Form (Superbill). Of note, if your visits are included in your membership program, we cannot provide you with an Insurance Correspondence Form (Superbill) for the individual service.

If you seek to obtain an Insurance Correspondence Form (Superbill) after your visit, please contact our accounting department. We can provide forms for services completed within the last six months.

The tests or procedures included depend on your specific program. If your plan includes primary care, the majority of your medical care completed at PALM Health, such as EKGs, ear cleaning, wound cleaning, joint steroid injections, as well as some point of care tests such as strep, mono, and flu, are included at no additional fee. Diagnostic tests such as COVID-19 testing may be done at PALM as part of your membership benefits and the lab will process payment of the test through your insurance. The flu vaccine, as available, is included as well. Of note, COVID-19 testing, pneumonia vaccination, shingles vaccination, hepatitis A vaccination, TDAP vaccination, prolotherapy, and vitamin B12 shots are not included.

Suppose a procedure, medication, or vaccination is not included.

Please ask your Navigator or refer to your membership agreement for further details regarding the services included in your membership.

In some cases, PALM’s fees may be paid for using your employer-based Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA). Contact your health insurance representative for specific details on your HSA and FSA benefits coverage.

A PALM Health membership does not replace health insurance. We advise all members to maintain a separate health insurance plan of their choosing for blood work, diagnostic imaging, urgent care, emergency room visits, medications, hospitalizations, surgery, and other medical care outside of PALM Health.

No. PALM Health is not health insurance and is not a substitute for comprehensive health insurance. Given that our service does not fulfill the ACA’s health insurance requirement, we encourage everyone to maintain a separate health insurance plan to meet their needs.
