Insurance

We value accessible and sustainable healthcare

For the convenience of our patients, we are happy to bill any insurance provider on their behalf.

In Network Providers

Naturopathic physicians are recognized in Connecticut as specialists and are licensed physicians. Though the providers are in network with many insurance companies, it is important for you to understand your policy, as some plans exclude naturopathic services.

Some times referrals are needed. If your plan requires a referral for specialists, your primary care doctor can help put this in place before your visit.

Unfortunately, Naturopathic physicians are not licensed in every state, so federal plans, including Medicare and Medicaid as well as plans based in other states may not cover naturopathic services.

The best thing to do is call your insurance company and know your benefits. The staff at Connecticut Natural Health Specialists cannot do this for you.

The physicians are contracted providers for:

  • Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Aetna
  • Cigna
  • Connecticare
  • Oxford
  • United Health Care
  • Harvard Pilgrim

Out of network benefits

Many plans offer benefits for providers out of network, these may apply to naturopathic physicians.

I brought my daughter to see Dr. Burkman for relief of allergies. Our doctor recommended Dr. Burkman as a naturopath instead of an allergist. Dr. Burkman is incredibly kind as a human being. We connected to Ashley right away. She was very thorough, and explained the reasoning for the remedies recommended. I especially liked how she spoke to my daughter, the patient, instead of me, the mom!
