Dr. Ou's office does not participate in any insurance networks. . If your plan has out of network benefits, which include most PPOs (such as Blue Cross PPO, United PPO, Cigna PPO), then his office will help file your claim. In most cases, there is at least partial coverage once the deductible has been met. You should ask your insurance company what your "out of network" benefits are if you have questions about coverage.
Note that insurance will only cover the office visit fee, which is for Dr. Ou's time, and most lab tests. Insurance never pays for any supplements or alternative treatments.
