Do you accept insurance, HSA, or FSA?

Kale Diagnostics can directly accept HSA and FSA payment for full coverage. We are not in-network with any health insurance providers, so we do not accept insurance directly, but we are able to facilitate health insurance reimbursement at no additional cost. Many of our clients get partial reimbursement from insurance. Another avenue for our clients to afford our services is through Affirm. With this option, manageable monthly installments can start as low as $62 per month.


What is the basis for the cost of your services?

While the average primary care doctor in America spends a mere 20 minutes per year with each patient, we at Kale Diagnostics prioritize investing quality time in understanding your unique health profile. 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. With monthly installments potentially as low as $62, we ensure our dedicated, in-depth care is within your reach, regardless of immediate financial constraints.


What results can I expect to see when working with Kale Diagnostics?

For some, their journey with Kale Diagnostics is a 180-degree, life-changing experience that provides relief from a laundry list of symptoms and years of struggle. For others, we are a helpful stop in their continued journey. The majority of our clients (83%) do see symptom reduction within the first three months, and while we cannot guarantee results, we are always committed to providing the very best and most comprehensive care.


Do you diagnose or treat?

No, we do not diagnose or treat diseases, but you can work with us if you have one or multiple conditions, and we can share alternative treatment options that can be approved by your doctor. It’s important to note that Kale Diagnostics is not intended to replace an individual relationship with a qualified healthcare professional and is not intended as medical advice. Kale Diagnostics encourages you to continue visiting and being treated by your primary care physician or healthcare provider.


How does my relationship with my doctor play into my work with Kale Diagnostics?

We encourage you to meet regularly with your doctor, and if needed, we can provide resources that support your doctor-patient relationship while you work with the Kale Diagnostics team to support your desired health outcomes.
