CAN MY FEES BE REIMBURSED BY MY INSURANCE COMPANY?
In some cases, you can submit a receipt for your membership fees or lab/medication costs. Some insurance companies will apply these payments toward a deductible.


DO YOU ACCEPT HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNT (HSA)?
SilverArc APN as a health care provider is authorized to accept health saving account (HSA) payment.

A health savings account (HSA) is a tax-advantaged medical savings account available to taxpayers in the United States who are enrolled in a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). The funds contributed to an account are not subject to federal income tax at the time of deposit.

Because we accept HSA payments you can receive your care without additional out of pocket payments. We will provide a superbill you can submit to your insurance company in the hope it can be used to meet your deductible requirement.


WHAT IF I NEED TO BE REFFERED TO A SPECIALIST?
SilverArc APN will refer you to a specialist when you need care beyond the scope of our services. We will work with you to select the specialist you feel is right for you.


ARE THERE MEDICATIONS SILVERARC APN DOESN'T PRESCRIBE?
The short answer is no but there are limitations. We do not prescribe opiates, benzodiazepines, most psychiatric medications or stimulant medications on a routine basis. We believe there are far better means of dealing with pain, and stress than the use of mood or mind altering medications.

As a family nurse practitioner we choose not to initiate the routine use of antipsychotic, or mentally stimulating medication.

In the process of assisting you to stop a substance you are not able to stop we will prescribe a number of medications for a short term and in limited quantities.

We are able to offer buprenorphine/naltrexone treatment to a limited number of patients as part of our Medication Assisted Treatment for substance use program
