In Massachusetts, Naturopathic Medicine is not covered by insurance, but since Dr. Hinkle is also a Physician Assistant (PA) whose services are generally covered, you may be able to use your insurance to cover all or some of your visit and labs. Dr. Hinkle’s clinic, Northampton Integrative Medicine is contracted with several insurance companies (please see below). Insurances do vary widely, so it may be helpful to check with your particular plan prior to your visit or laboratory work if this is a concern. Additionally, insurance plans often have preferred laboratories to administer the blood draw or urine collection, etc. Usually, if you use their preferred laboratory, they will often cover more of the cost.

Dr. Hinkle can be seen at Northampton Integrative Medicine. Here are the Insurance plans they accept.
