Sliding Scale Tuesdays
Discounted sliding scale office visits will be offered every Tuesday, beginning March 1, 2017. We are offering this in the spirit of wishing to help make anthroposophic medicine and therapies available to a wider range of people. Here are some key details:
· Sliding scale discounts of A) 15%, B) 25% or C) 35% are available on Tuesdays. The amount of discount being requested should please be indicated as part of the “Additional info” entered when an appointment is scheduled on the practice website.
· These sliding scale discounts are available on Tuesdays for 30- and 60-minute office visits (for both new patient visits and for follow-up visits), as well as for anthroposophic nursing therapies. They are not available for phone consultations or for 90-minute “extended” new patient appointments with Dr. Blanning.
· We offer these in a spirit of trust and communal well-being. The discounts should be requested when the cost of a normal visit is not financially accessible. We hope that they can be shared within a broad group of people.
Integrated Care Package:
There are currently places in
the world where large hospitals, medical clinics and retreat centers are able
to offer multi-disciplinary anthroposophic care (Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden), but the current medical model
and insurance programs in the U.S. do not make this possible. This is a challenging moral quandary, as
participation in insurance plans immediately creates oversight and rigid
expectations around the kind of medical care that is being provided. Services must meet the "standard of
care," or practitioners face severe scrutiny, as well as potential
punitive limits on medical practice and monetary fines. For these reasons we continue to make the
decision that it is better to remain outside of the insurance system,
recognizing that it is limiting access but it also allows us to provide a fully
individualized, holistic approach to the healing process.
We would like to try to take one
step towards healing that conflict.
introducing an integrative "care package," which is meant to provide
in-depth support for individuals who are experiencing or have experienced a
significant illness. Working through the
healing process takes time, so the care package will include:
visits with Dr. Blanning over a 4-6 month span (three one hour visits, and two
30 minute follow-up visits)
rhythmical massage or anthroposophic nursing treatments with Dona Totten RN,
also over a 4-6 month span. These would
be divided into two, six session courses, with a break in between them. Treatments will be customized for each
15% discount on all in-stock remedies during the treatment course.
~15% discount on medical visits and massage/nursing treatments when they are
purchased together as a package in this way.
of the care package is $1320.
This is designed with several aspects in mind:
We do not work with any insurance, and expect payment at the time of the
service (cash, check, Visa or Mastercard are accepted). We work this way to preserve both the therapeutic freedom and the time to approach your health in a truly holistic way.
Office visits and
medications can be paid for through a Health Savings Account, or may be
reimbursable if you have out-of-network coverage as part of your insurance plan.
We provide receipts with the appropriate medical service and diagnostic codes you would need to file with your insurance.
We work with people on a broad range of illnesses and complaints, but cannot
offer all medical services. We are not able to provide any obstetrical or hospital
care, and may refer you back to your primary care physician for pap smears,
blood work, vaccinations, or any other required testing. You will need to maintain
a primary care physician through your insurance company, as Dr. Blanning also
travels doing teaching and consultative work and cannot guarantee continuous
Please bring all of your current medications (both prescription and over-thecounter) with you to your visit.
If you need to cancel an appointment, we ask that you give us at least 24 hours
notice so that the slot may be made available to someone else. For no-show
appointments, or appointments canceled less than 24 hours in advance we may
change a fee for the time reserved (usually 50% of the charge for the scheduled
