Happy Hormone Cottage’s Step-by-Step Plan
for Natural Hormone Balance
- Understand the importance of hormone balance. Contact consultant at one of our locations to gather information about customized hormone therapy. If you live in the Cincinnati-Dayton-Northern Kentucky area, attend one of our events, such as a Happy Hormone Hour, to talk with other women and meet with our consultants.
- Schedule a consultation which includes a comprehensive review of patient symptoms; medical, personal, and family history; a discussion of the importance of hormone balance and the role it plays in a healthy body; and the benefits of different testing options. A practitioner referral will be provided for you to see our in-house nurse practitioner.
- Purchase a test kit in our online store or at one of our consultation locations. The testing kit fee is included with purchase of our testing kits. Insurance reimbursement has been high because urine testing is an accepted means of checking hormone levels. If you want to check with your insurance company regarding reimbursement for hormone testing, click here for Precision Analytical (urine testing). Note: this form is in pdf format, you need Adobe Reader to open it. If you are on a mobile device, download the Adobe Reader App to view. You will receive a receipt with your test kit purchase.
- Follow the instructions in the testing kit (urine test video) and send to lab in the envelope provided. Please put 6 stamps on the envelope and mail it to the lab.
- The lab will fax your results to us. We will mail you a copy, as our pharmacists work to craft a natural hormone balance strategy customized for you for your optimal hormone balance. If you would like to submit your testing kit for reimbursement by your insurance provider, keep your receipt and click here for Precision Analytical prescription form. Note: this form is in pdf format, you need Adobe Reader to open it. If you are on a mobile device, download the Adobe Reader App to view. Check to indicate the test purchased, have your practitioner sign the prescription form, and send these to your insurance provider, along with the receipt for the kit.
- For best success, we prefer you see our in-house nurse practitioner. She will go over your tests results, discuss options with you, answer your questions and write a recommendation for your individualized compounded therapy. Call us when you complete your test kit and we will schedule an appointment for you to see her 3-4 weeks after you mail your kit to the lab. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Starting March 1, 2016, “No Show” Nurse Practitioner appointments will be charged their $100 appointment fee. Our time is valuable, our services are specialized, we only see one client every 30 minutes, and we have clients waiting to get in for an appointment. Make sure you show up for your appointment or you will be charged for our time. Also we DO have a 24 hour cancellation policy. Give us 24 hour notice before canceling, so you will not be charged for your appointment time. Thank you for your understanding.
- For those who go to their own doctor there is a $75 enrollment fee to send lab results and therapy recommendations outside our practice. We will call for your appointment date (no sooner than 3-4 weeks after mailing test kit to the lab) so we can fax your test results and our recommendation to your doctor for your appointment with him/her. These recommendations are based on input from our pharmacist, whose sole responsibility is developing the doctor-patient-pharmacy triad. The doctor will then fax the signed prescription to The Piqua Compounding Pharmacy* at 937-773-0643.
- Our Piqua Compounding Pharmacy and Compounding Lab* will compound your natural hormones. Compounded hormones are billable to some insurance companies* under 2 tier (brand) co-pay or 3 tier (non-formulary) co-pay. If not accepted by insurance, each prescription cash prices average $30—$45 depending on the amount of supplementation needed. Many times the cash price is less than the co-pay price. If you receive letters or forms from your insurance company regarding your compounded prescription, please contact us for assistance.
* some insurance exclusion does apply
- The Piqua Compounding Pharmacy* will contact you when your prescription is ready to arrange pickup or delivery to your home. We will provide a second free consultation to discuss test results, review medication use/application, follow-up policy and procedures, reorder guidelines, and answer questions. For your convenience, we offer online prescription refill ordering.
- Use your natural hormones as directed, keep a journal of your symptoms, and stay in touch with our patient consultants. Questions or concerns can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Take advantage of all that our website offers. Check out our innovative Thyroid Health section, Lyn’s blogs and newsletters, our testimonial section from our satisfied clients, and our online store, where you can also order Lyn’s new book, “Own Your Journey.”
- Congratulations! This is your first step to WELLNESS as you are on the road to your best health naturally. What you place your attention on determines the quality of your life. We will be with you to support you on your journey. Our passion is our relationship with you as you are on your journey to optimal hormone balance.
