Unfortunately, insurance does not value functional and prevention medicine. Dr. Eads has opted out of Medicare, and is not a contracted provider with any insurances. This means she is not allowed to accept payment from Medicare, and the costs for her services can not be submitted to Medicare for reimbursement. If you have private insurance, you may seek out of network reimbursement from them on your own.
Most of the advanced testing utilized by Dr. Eads is not covered by Medicare or other insurance, especially for prevention. Keeping your information private is important to us. If your insurance pays for your testing, they have access to the results, which may be used against you. Testing in Phase I may reveal some reasons that some insurances agree justify covering testing. In Phases II and III, Dr. Eads helps guide you in determining if using your insurance or her practitioner discount is most advantageous for each test.
The Phase I program costs $10,000, including over $7,500 value in labs alone with an estimated $22,500 full retail value. Dr. Eads invests about 20 hours into each participant, learning their unique personal history, analyzing their hundreds of lab results, creating their personalized treatment action plan, preparing a nearly 200 page binder with their personalized treatment information and testing results, and discussing their individualized plan. Dr. Eads strives to make this an exceptionally high value experience with easy to understand test results and personalized prevention plan including detailed supplement recommendations. Cost of supplements is not included.
The Phase II program costs $2,000 per round of retesting, discounted from a full retail value of $5,000, plus the cost of testing either utilizing your insurance or Dr. Eads' practitioner discount. Dr. Eads invests about 10 hours into each individual with each round, analyzing test results, determining and discussing personalized treatment recommendations, and updating their binder.
Payment is due when you are accepted into the program, and is held in escrow as described in a contract you will receive. Credit card, debit card, and check are all accepted forms of payment.

No. As a telemedicine practice, all of your consultations happen in the comfort of your own home, on your own computer or iPad/tablet with a camera and microphone. It's similar to FaceTime, but over a secure website. Many of Dr. Eads' patients reside outside of Colorado. If you are local to Dr. Eads (Colorado Springs), she is happy to meet with you in person to get acquainted, if you desire.
Congratulations on taking action with strong behavioral shifts! With the information obtained from testing done in the Phase I program, Dr. Eads can advise you how to customize your nutrition and other lifestyle practices, in addition to supplements, to optimize your brain health and decrease your risk of many chronic diseases.
Our compliments for already embarking on this healthy lifestyle journey! Dr. Eads has worked with numerous individuals who have previously seen other ReCODE practitioners. Because this unique program has a strong functional medicine foundation and creates a highly individualized manual to serve as an educational and motivational tool, it is difficult to begin where another practitioner left off as too much information is lacking. We have learned that starting from square one and starting our program at the beginning is most beneficial for you. This includes additional testing beyond what ReCODE requires. Whether you need to uncover more of the causes of your cognitive decline so you can improve, need retesting to see where you are, or desire help in maintaining your advancements, Dr. Eads can partner with you to achieve your goals. Contact us for a Discovery Consultation to learn how this customized program may benefit you.
