Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take insurance?
Yes, we take insurance for most obstetric and gynecological visits and procedures. Most insurance plans are accepted, please call our main number at 281-220-2069 if you have questions about insurance coverage. We do not take insurance for nutrition or bioidentical hormone programs.
Why do you not accept insurance for nutrition or bioidentical hormone programs?
There are no reimbursement codes for bioidentical hormone therapy, therefore we can’t file these visits under insurance. These visits also tend to be much longer than a traditional insurance visit and not having to abide by insurance guidelines means doctors can spend much longer with patients. Bioidentical hormone therapy is also very individualized and very dependent on getting a thorough patient history (including diet, exercise and supplement history and past hormone use). Time to do this is simply not allowed in an insurance visit. Nutrition visits also take more time (typically 45 min to 1 hour), but insurance companies are generally only able to reimburse for a 15 minute visit. We do not feel this time constraint allows us to give you the best care possible.
Where do the doctors deliver?
Memorial Hermann Hospital in the medical center. You need to preregister at the hospital by the 30th week of pregnancy. You can do this at the hospital or online.
What medications are safe during pregnancy?
For all pregnancy related questions please visit our Pregnancy FAQs page.
Do you take insurance for testing?
Yes, for most testing. We have MedFusion onsite. Specialty testing (such as saliva tests, nutritional/GI tests, etc) may or may not go through insurance depending on your carrier and the test being done. It is the patient’s responsibility to know what your deductible is where lab work is concerned.
I am new to your practice and I'm not sure what kind of appointment I need. Where do I start?
We understand figuring out the right kind of appointment can be confusing. Since we are a conventional OBGYN office with a functional medicine department we offer a Program Consult with two of our doctors.
