Does Dr. Ray Accept My Health Insurance?
Currently, most health insurances in the state of California do not cover naturoapthic doctors (NDs), which limits NDs from being able to bill insurance for medical services rendered. Patients are advised to contact their insurance plan to learn if coverage is available.
Dr. Ray's practice is a cash-based model known as "direct primary care," which eliminates insurance as a middle-man and allows her to give patients the care they need versus limiting care to what insurance will cover.
If you have an insurance plan with a HSA/FSA account, Dr. Ray is able to accept payments from those accounts in the form of a HSA/FSA benefits card.
Dr. Ray can also provide patients with a superbill receipt, upon request, so they can submit to insurance on their own for possible reimbursement.

Can I See Dr. Ray If I Already Have Another Doctor?
Yes! Patients can still see Dr. Ray even if they see another primary-care doctor and/or specialist. Dr. Ray also offers second-opinon consults.
Because most of Dr. Ray's services are what patients fail to receive from conventional healthcare, enrolling in one of her health programs is a great alternative to finally get the care you need and deserve.
You've tried the conventional way, so it's time to try the transformative way with Dr. Ray!
Does Dr. Ray Prescribe Pharmaceutical Drugs for Treatments?
As a California-licensed naturopathic doctor, Dr. Ray can legally prescribe hormones, epinephrine and chelation medications to patients within the state.
Dr. Ray actively manages patients on pharmaceutical drug therapy and can safely wean them off certain medications as their symptoms resolve.
Please note, Dr. Ray never prescribes drugs as a first-line treatment unless absolutely necessary for the safety and well-being of the patient. The goal is to always help patients heal naturally from their ailments using nutrition, herbs, lifestyle management and other non-pharmaceutical therapies as the primary treatments.
