Getting Your Labs Covered by Insurance
I started running labs nearly three years ago to help me figure out how to manage my migraines. The more I’ve run labs, the more I’ve discovered about my medical issues. One of the biggest discoveries I’ve made is how changing seasons directly impact my migraines, even when using Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). I’ve figured out how to get my insurance to cover my labs, and I show you how I’ve done it in a special free eCourse that includes tips for getting your labs covered by your health insurance.

Health Insurance: Getting the Most Out of Your Policy
I’ve spent the past 14 years navigating the bureaucracy of the Healthcare System, including the infamous VA Hospital and Kaiser. Your insurance company is betting that you don’t understand how to get the most out of your benefits; education is power! I want to help you get the most out of your health insurance policy (and to help you understand how to choose a good healthcare plan). I’ve put together Health Insurance 101 to give you tips you can use to get the most out of your health insurance plan.

Finding Paleo/Primal-Friendly Doctors
There are several directories online where you can find doctors who fall in the integrative medicine / functional medicine / anti-aging category (these are the categories where you’re most likely to find docs who will support biohacking and support your journey to optimal using supplementation, herbs, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy [BHRT], alternative therapies and more). Here are a few I’ve found useful:
Finding a Doctor Who Accepts Your Insurance
If you want to search a great database that will let you specify the type of doc you’re looking for and who your insurance carrier is, I’ve had pretty good luck with HealthProfs.com.
Finding Healthcare Services for the Best Price
If you want to compare costs of services by hospital, doctor, or procedure?
HealthcareBlueBook.com is a great place to being your research.
You can also search for prescription drug costs at the following two sites. I’ve used both to find the pharmacy with the best price in my area.
