Do I have to be a member to be seen at Siskiyou Vital Medicine?

No, you never have to feel obligated to have a membership in order to be seen by one of our providers. Our members do have priority on appointment availability, which allows them quicker access, usually within a few days. Wait time for non-members is currently 2-4 weeks.

Additionally, members benefit from discounts on products and services offered through the practice.

Do your plans serve as health insurance?

Membership at Siskiyou Vital Medicine is not insurance coverage. Our services are designed to complement your current health measures.

Does my insurance cover your services?

Direct Primary Care is a retainer medical practice. It is not health insurance. As such, Siskiyou Vital Medicine may not bill insurance or Medicare/Medicaid programs. SVM members are also not allowed to submit claims to their insurance for any services(s) included in the membership. Services outside of those that are part of the membership and covered by your insurance may be reimbursable. Consult with your insurance company for details.

What is a Naturopathic Doctor?

Naturopathic doctors are medical providers who have completed four years of doctorate level training in naturopathic medicine. This training not only includes the basic sciences and clinical systems including minor office procedures, but also training in nutrition, herbal medicine, nature cure, homeopathy and joint manipulation. Finally, the naturopathic physicians at Siskiyou Vital Medicine view the body and illness through the lens of vitalism where the body’s natural healing ability is supported and optimized.

How long are appointments?

Appointments generally take between 30 – 60 minutes. The length of the appointment depends entirely upon our individual patient needs. We prefer to get to know our patients in a relaxed setting.

Can I use my Health Savings Account or Flexible Spending Account?

We do accept HSA and FSA payments for time of service appointments.
