Accommodations & Fees
Everyone participating in the TrueNorth Health Education Center's program must undergo assessment and examination. The fee for this medical evaluation, including a discount for time of service payment, is $295. This medical package fee covers the initial intake exam, the cost of the doctors' time involved in ordering and reviewing laboratory tests, meeting with and directing the staff and interns, reviewing daily chart notes. The medical package for patients with complex medical problems is $390 (the additional charge is to cover the additional time needed to review and evaluate the complex medical management issues).
Beginning January 1st 2019, patients receiving medical management at TrueNorth Health (this includes all patients undergoing water-only fasting, juice fasting and all medicated patients on healthy eating programs) will be seen every day by staff clinicians for daily rounds. Vitals will be taken, a daily history recorded and questions answered. All data is reviewed each day by an attending doctor at TrueNorth who will be supervising your care and 1 or more evaluations will take place each week with your doctor throughout your stay. The fee for these medical management services is billed at $95 for every week or portion of a week that you are staying at the center. This weekly charge of $95 may be reimbursed by health insurance or medicare.
The medical management fees may be partially reimbursed to you by health insurance that allows you to select the doctor of your choice. We bill these medical management charges separately from our program charges so that those participants with health insurance coverage may receive appropriate reimbursement.
