Medicare does not acknowledge Naturopaths so I pay out of pocket to see mine. Medicare does pay for any RX's she writes. I am finally (I think) ready to switch over to straight Medicare but this is my question. If my NP orders labs, will they pay? or do they only look at the diagnostic code? My PCP will order some stuff but I'm tired of explaining to him and fighting. I just want someone to order stuff. Does anyone know for sure? I'm not calling Medicare. I have not had the opportunity to call the local advocacy agency yet. Thanks. Please tag me. @Sushi do you know?
