Once you are established as a patient, you will have a HIPPA compliant, privacy protected email link to our providers.

Dr. Ballard accepts most health insurance plans, including Medicare for primary care patients. Integrative Medicine Consults with Dr. Ballard cost $250.00. These are for patients who wish to continue with their current primary care provider, but want an integrative medicine perspective regarding their health. Our practice is currently closed to new Medicaid patients. Co-pays, deductibles, and self pays are due at time of service. We expect you to understand your health insurance coverage and be prepared to pay your co-pay or deductible at time of service. We charge $25 to $40 for Attending Provider Statements for disability and leave from work forms. Patients may schedule 15 minute phone follow ups for $45.00. Other Holiwell Health providers accept direct payment and do not file health insurance claims for their services. Patients with Health Savings Accounts may use these funds to pay for the services of Holiwell Health providers if those services are ordered by a physician. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards.
Our patients are our partners. We expect you to obtain your past medical records, share information between us and your other health care providers, bring in updated medication and supplement lists to each visit, understand your insurance plan and adhere to the healing plan we set forth together. Patients should inform staff if they are using their Annual Wellness Visit. If you must miss your appointment, please call us at least 24 hours prior, otherwise you will be charged $50.00 per missed appointment. If you are not ready to embrace a wellness lifestyle, we are probably not the right primary care practice for you. We understand that it takes time to develop healthy habits and we help you set compassionate, realistic goals. While we acknowledge that not everyone can be cured, we believe everyone can become well if they are willing to care for themselves with optimal diet, physical activity, stress reduction, and love and support.
