Do you accept insurance, HSA, or FSA?
Kale Diagnostics can directly accept HSA and FSA payment for full coverage.

Our comprehensive services, including lab tests and personalized nutritional support, reflect the additional time and attention we devote to each client, which often proves to be a transformative investment in their long-term health. Although our detailed approach might mean higher upfront costs, we strive to make it as accessible as possible. Not only do we accept HSA and FSA and provide insurance superbills for potential reimbursement, but we've also partnered with Affirm to offer flexible financing.
