How much will this cost me?
$0. Zip. Zilch. Nothing. The One Great Gut Network service is free!

Wait, did you just say free?
Yes! The service is free for patients.

Do the providers work remote or in-person?
Both are available. Many providers work through HIPPA compliant telehealth or telemedicine portals.

Can I order my own lab tests?
Yes! We have carefully vetted two partners who meet our requirements.

1) Use the One Great Gut account at Ulta Lab Tests.  Through its network of nurse advocates, phlebotomists and healthcare providers, enables you o control, track and manage your own healthcare through lab tests and health screenings. They provide affordable, physician-approved laboratory testing services to you through their network of healthcare providers in the community where they live, work, shop, learn, worship, and play.Ulta Lab Tests enables you to take control of your healthcare costs, while customizing your lab testing on your own schedule. They provide over 1,000 clinical lab tests, convenient, comprehensive, confidential and affordable laboratory testing to consumers so that your can monitor your wellness and be proactive in the prevention and early detection of dis-ease. Ulta Lab Tests is the first company that not just lets patients order their own labs (and receive the results), but also allows you to submit your receipts to your insurance for billing! Please be sure to check with your insurance, as each company has different rules. Pricing is affordable as they offer discounted rates up to 80% after negotiating significant national pricing discounts, with the same Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certified labs that most doctors utilize.

2)  True Health Labs who offer more specialized testing is available not only in the United States but also Canada, Europe, and other countries.  TrueHealthLabs, founded in 2009, was created by a Doctor to make lab testing directly available to those who are uninsured, under-insured, whose doctor refuses to order tests and those who simply want to make their own healthcare choices. Your results will be sent to you via encrypted email. TrueHealthLabs  saves you 20-80% off lab tests by negotiating directly with CLIA certified labs. With a very high trust rating from thousands of users we are fans.  They conveniently accept HSA +FSA Accounts, too!

How do I know which tests to order? 
Towards  bottom of this blog post are common tests that those with IBD, Crohn’s and Colitis routinely order to clinically track their condition and monitor dis-ease re or progression.

Does the One Great Gut Network accept Private Insurance, Medicare or Medicaid?
This is up to the individual practitioner. Some do, other’s can provide you with a super bill to submit to your Insurance. You can also use your Health Savings or Flexible Spending Account.

How is this different than other networks or practitioner listings?
There are many differences! For one, this was created by patients, for patients. Secondly this was created specially for those with IBD.

Where have you been all my life?
Right here! We’re glad you finally found us, sorry it took so long.
We promise to do better in the future.

We are considering creating this for you. Would you like that? Let us know!

Can I submit a review for a provider I have directly worked with?
Yes, please! We want to know the good and the, um, not so good, from patients and providers. We are hoping this will up-level compassionate care, improve patient outcomes and “doctor-patient” relationships

Will you include businesses of those with IBD Crohn’s Colitis that are not health practitioners?
Yes! Send us a message with what you have in mind.  We will support other IBD Crohn’s Colitis patients in their goals. A rising tide lifts all boats. The same vetting process will be used so you know that you’ll be working with other’s who are also GREAT. Like us – One Great Gut. 😉

You can see videos of some of the practitioners in the One Great Gut Network on our YouTube Channel under Playlists

Note:
As with any service, conduct your due diligence and keep in mind that everyone has a bad day and one person experience may not be yours. The hidden truth is that suicide rates by Doctors rank among one of the highest professions. I believe most, if not all went into medicine to truly help and are just as frustrated, if not more so, than us patients.

Ask your community and friends for a recommendation. Check places like the Better Business Bureau(BBB), social media reviews on places like Google Business, Facebook, Yelp and Doctor review sites like RateMDs, Vitals, Health Grades and WebMD.  Unfortunately none of those websites are 100% reliable. Studies show that online reviews are sometimes authentic, sometimes fake, and sometimes influenced and biased.  RateMD Doctors can pay to have a limited number of comments hidden and also boost themselves on the page. Yelp has been accused of filtering algorithms filtering reviews and extortion of businesses.

Also I recommend checking The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Open Payments data on ProPublica Dollars for Docs.

Pharmaceutical and medical device companies are now required by law to release details of their payments to a variety of doctors and U.S. teaching hospitals for promotional talks, research and consulting, among other categories.

Use this tool to search for general payments (excluding research and ownership interests) made from August 2013 to December 2015. Also read the article: Now There’s Proof: Docs Who Get Company Cash Tend to Prescribe More Brand-Name Meds. 

On May 28, 2019 ProPublica told me that they do plan on updating Dollars for Docs, which relies on data from CMS.gov – the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. They believe CMS is still keeping track of this valuable information and should have their database updated later this year.
