Frequently Asked Questions

 

Do you accept my insurance?

At Sparrow, we have a Direct Primary Care model (DPC), which means you pay a set price for each service you receive. This allows us to keep our costs completely transparent and our prices affordable for all patients, regardless of insurance status. 

Will my insurance cover tests or medications?

If your insurance policy includes coverage for medications, labs/tests, or imaging, the facility that performs your labs can bill your insurance directly. Services will be covered according to the terms of your policy. 

Can I submit my charges to my insurance on my own?

Although we do not bill insurance directly, or submit to any insurance on behalf of patients (including Medicare and Medicaid), we will provide documentation for patients to submit if requested. 

Why did you name it 'Sparrow'?

The sparrow is often used as a symbol of cooperation, teamwork, and finding simple joys in life. Sparrows are also used in reference to care and concern for the individual, regardless of means or status. Caring and compassion for each of our patients, without judgement or condemnation, is at the core of who we are as providers and why we chose careers in healthcare.

What if I need care beyond what Sparrow can provide?

We maintain close working relationships with specialists of all disciplines, and we happily coordinate care and referrals as needed to ensure our patients' needs are met.

Why the 'Fee for Service' model?

We have chosen the ‘fee for service’ model, because we strongly desire to offer treatment plans to our patients that are not dictated by their insurance plan or company. By keeping insurance out of the picture, we are able to keep our costs low, as the typical high prices seen in health care are dictated by the business of insurance, not the actual services provided. 

Do you treat kids?

Here at Sparrow, we offer numerous options for pediatric  care diagnoses and treatments. We value the expertise that pediatrician’s hold in managing well-child visits, immunizations, and chronic conditions, and we lean on that expertise. However, we know that sometimes finding availability, especially with short term notice for acute issues, can be difficult. This is where we step in. We are able to offer pediatric options, with same-day availability, to treat those illnesses, infections, or injuries that cannot wait for the next available appointment at your pediatrician’s office. Our goal is to be a part of the team that keeps your kids happy, healthy, and safe. We will also work in collaboration with your pediatrician, to ensure they are kept in the loop of diagnosis and treatment, so that all members of the provider team are on the same page.

What services do you offer?

We are a boutique clinic that offers a wide variety of services that can be tailored to your specific needs. We want to be your first call, whether you need your yearly check-up, have an ear infection or if you are wanting to get your hormones checked. See our comprehensive Service List for more information.

What are your prices?

Price transparency is a cornerstone of our practice. We believe everyone deserves access to quality care, and financial uncertainty shouldn't be a barrier to good health. By openly discussing costs, we empower you to make informed decisions about your treatment plan without the worry of surprise bills.. See our Services page for a full breakdown of pricing.

What are the most common things that you treat?

At Sparrow Integrated Health we diagnose and treat a variety of illnesses, injuries, and conditions. 

As busy individuals, it is so easy for us to ignore the nagging symptoms that we deem as “normal for me” and “just a part of daily life”, when in reality, there may be something we can do to eliminate those symptoms. We address symptoms and complaints from a functional foundation, relying heavily on subjective patient reports, not just the object lab results. We treat the whole person, not just numbers.
