Investing in your health is just that – “an investment”. Unlike other investment such as material or financial investment, health investments should provide you with gain energy, strength, and stability, among many other benefits. What good are material things without the one true gift of good health and feeling good about yourself ? At Dr. Dieguez office , we strive to achieve that ultimate goal for you- that goal of being healthy and active without pain and feeling good about yourself. Only you can decide what is fair and “worth the investment” when it comes to out of pocket cost for your healthcare with regenerative medicine. We will strive to instill the feeling of “that was worth it” when you come to our office to see Dr. Dieguez for your care.All prices are explained up front and neither treatment nor lab work are done without the patient’s prior approval. That is why a consultation or pre-procedure visit is always schedule before any procedure.
We respectfully request that patients pay in full at the time of service. Our office accepts all major credit cards except American Express, and we also accept cash (or any combination of the above). If we are participating providers with your insurance company and the service we provided to you is a covered service, we will bill your insurance company and you will only be responsible for any copay, co-insurance or deductible you may have.
This is how we see it: NO INSURANCE? NO PROBLEM! DO YOU HAVE AN INSURANCE POLICY THAT RESTRICTS YOUR ACCESS TO SPECIALIST CARE? NO PROBLEM! WE CAN HELP!

Wanting to avoid turning down those patients in our office, prompted us to come up with some kind of affordable solution for patients with financial hardship. You will need to sign some forms and a financial hardship agreement to take advantage of these affordable rates.
1.- Flat cash affordable rates for everyone facing the above mentioned issues if we are not participating provider with your insurance company. Examples that come to mind are Humana, GHI, Aetna, Cigna, AvMed, EHN, Connecticut General, Coventry Health, Capital Health Plan, CarePlus Health Plan, Health First Plans, Prime HealthCare, Sunshine State Health Plan, Florida Health Care Plan, Tricare HMO, Wellcare, and many, many others.
2.- For those other procedures more specialized that we offer in our office, such as Prolotherapy, PRP, and Stem Cell Procedures, that have never been covered by insurance companies, we have also tried to keep them affordable for you and have adjusted our price much lower than the competition. These specific procedure are never cheap because they are time consuming and supplies are pricy.

We realize that with the introduction of the “Affordable Care Act”, some patients out there are still finding it difficult to afford health insurance coverage. Others are now facing much higher deductibles and co-pays. Still other have insurance policies that makes it very difficult or impossible for them to have access to specialist care and can only see a specialist if they are referred by their primary care physician. DO YOU THINK THAT THIS IS REALLY GOING TO HAPPEN? NOT A CHANCE. Do you know why? Because these primary care physicians are incentivized by your insurance company not to make those referrals, because it increases the insurance company’s cost to provide your care. So you find yourself with a condition that necessitates specialist care and you are not getting it.
It is important that you are aware that we will not be providing controlled substance prescriptions of any kind. If this is what you are looking for, you need to go elsewhere.
The following list has been provided as a guide for determining expected cost for the various services we provide.
