Covid public health emergency a priority & patient risk
Our practice will be undergoing further adjustments (per AO 2020-15) just released. Further details to come.
ENORMOUS DEMAND FOR NJMMP CERTIFICATIONS CONTINUES
We ask for your patience as we continue to make adjustments & investments in the process so that we can serve those in distress whether from anxiety, pain, or Covid-19 related illness. For now, medical evaluation “rules” governing things outside of the “normal in- office visit” are in a fluid situation and still subject to change.
Currently, the following will be in effect:
1. We hope to continue to allow our established NJMMP patients to recertify for 3 month periods only through our “auto-recertification” process/review form available on-line at our website. Fee will continue to be $49.00 (≈$16/month) through PayPal.
2. Subject to future modification, we will require payment in full at time of visit FOR ALL PATIENTS.
3. New patients or transfers will be evaluated - preferably in office - so that a complete exam and drug screen can be performed. Virtual/video visit will remain an option as well given present uncertain circumstances. Fee will be $196.00 for initial certification for 6 months.
4. Established patients wishing to have a certification for 6 months should be seen and assessed in office (video visit is optional) and our new price will be $100.00 (≈ $16/month)
We reserve the right to modify our pricing, evaluation protocols, extension periods, and insurance submission procedures at any time given the current uncertain and evolving climate surrounding the pandemic and its impact on the health and welfare of patients and staff.
