Do you accept my insurance?

Functional Vitality accepts insurance. We are in-network with Aetna, Anthem BCBS, Cigna, Coventry, and Medicare at this time. We will verify your benefits prior to your appointment so that you will know what your cost will be on your first visit. We also accept clients who prefer to self-pay. You will receive a receipt (Superbill) which you will self- submit to your insurance. Please call us at (770)740-5599 regarding  any insurance questions.

What to expect in the first visit?

Your therapist will perform a detailed and thorough evaluation. Together, we will determine a customized treatment plan based on your individual needs. Treatment will begin on the first visit so please arrive wearing comfortable clothing. No oils, creams, or exfoliants on any part of the body and please wear or bring a pair of loose-fitting shorts, sports bra, or tank top.

How many visits will I need?

Our model focuses on training you to manage your condition independently which means less sessions during the week. This will vary based on your condition, prior medical history, and your long term goals.
