Frequently Asked Questions
WHY IS ATCA BETTER THAN MY REGULAR DOCTOR FOR THIS?
WHY IS ATCA BETTER THAN MY REGULAR DOCTOR FOR THIS?
ATCA “only” treats Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Cognitive Impairment and Memory Loss and therefore our practitioners get excellent because this is their passion and 100% focus. In addition, a team of researchers supports them and analyzes each patients thousands of data points against the millions of data records we have in our data base. These researchers run correlation studies and issue a report that gives our practitioners a foundational understanding of everything YOU. This is an advantage our team has.
DID THE ATCA APPROACH REALLY HAVE A PROVEN OBSERVATIONAL STUDY?
Yes: In the documented 2 ½ year observational study using our protocol: up to 75% of the patients either had no further decline or, even better, had improvement in their mild cognitive impairment. No representation is being made that future patients will see similar results, as each patient is unique. These are OUTSTANDING results. However, we don’t rest on that as being “good enough” and are constantly improving on the approach used in the trial.
HOW MANY PATIENTS HAVE USED THE PROTOCOL THAT ATCA USES?
Over 3,000 patients have utilized this protocol over the last 5 years. We are delighted that the protocol has been able to help so many. That is why we are rapidly expanding ATCA across the entire USA. There are 5.8 million people with Alzheimer’s. We want to be able to help them all. In the documented 2 ½ year observational study using our protocol: up to 75% of the patients either had no further decline or, even better, had improvement in their mild cognitive impairment. No representation is being made that future patients will see similar results, as each patient is unique.
IF SUPPLEMENTS ARE PRESCRIBED CAN YOU DROP SHIP TOP QUALITY ONES?
Yes. We will get you access through a special ATCA code that enables you to purchase supplements from a supplier that normally only sells to practitioners. This is critical as these supplements are made to pharmaceutical quality levels. Many of the supplements on the market are not high quality and have contaminants in them that can add to your cognition issues. Also, many supplements over the counter are not created strong enough to get the benefit you need. You might have to take 10 of the over the counter pills to equal 1 of the ones recommended. You can order on-line and they will mail them to you.
ARE THESE TREATMENTS COVERED BY INSURANCE?
Yes, in general they are. The office visits, the bloodwork laboratory testing, the chronic care management follow-up, the report created on your condition and any prescription ordered should all be covered under typical insurance, Medicare, Medicare Advantage or Medicaid. This is of course subject to the normal deductibles and co-pays associated with your plan.
Does the protocol company that ATCA uses have a patent on the protocol?
IS IT TRUE THAT YOU ONLY TREAT ALZHEIMER’S, DEMENTIA, COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENT AND MEMORY LOSS?
DOES THE PROTOCOL COMPANY HAVE A HUGE ALZHEIMER’S DATABASE?
CAN I STAY SAFE IN THIS COVID WORLD AND STILL GO THROUGH YOUR PROCESS?
Absolutely!! We can send all the forms to fill out via email. We can then schedule and easy to use Telemedicine call. All you have to have is a computer with a camera on it. There is a simple “Zoom” download that all you do is click a button on an email we send you. Then you can see and talk with our practitioner over the computer. We will have a phlebotomists come to your home to draw your blood for the labs. The phlebotomist will be fully garbed in protective gear to protect you and them. The memory tests will be done on the computer as well. Once all of that is done, then the Follow-up visit will also be scheduled via Telemedicine about 2 weeks after the initial visit. We can keep you safe and still help you right now with your cognition issues.
DO YOU USE MY DNA TO MAKE THE RESULTS EVEN MORE ACCURATE?
DOES ATCA REALLY GIVE 60 MINUTES FOR THE FIRST VISIT AND 30 MINUTE FOR FOLLOW UPS?
Yes. Our practitioners really want to get all of the knowledge of what is going on with you. That coupled with the extensive intake form information give us the maximum opportunity to create the best approach for you. We don’t push patients quickly through to maximize profit as many clinics do. We have set our standards to focus on the best possible outcomes for our patients. Also, during the follow up visits we want to make sure that our practitioners have the time needed to go over the treatment plan.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE TYPICAL CHANGES THAT ARE RECOMMENDED?
Each patient is unique. The changes can include: changing out prescriptions that are causing cognitive impairment because they are “interacting” with your other prescription drugs; changes that need to be made to reduce inflammation anywhere in your body; diet changes that can lower inflammation; physical exercises; mental exercises; working to lower the sugar in your system; determine which foods are causing inflammation; working to improve your circulation; incredibly important is working to improve your sleep pattern. There are literally thousands of very specific possible recommendations. The good news for you is that they will be specific to YOU and not just a generic approach for people in general. It takes our analytical capabilities to be able to customize what YOU need.
DOES ATCA HELP ME AFTER THE INITIAL 2 VISITS?
Yes, we will set you up with our Health Coaches on a Chronic Care Management program that is typically covered by insurance. Our Coaches will interact a couple of times per week, usually by text to keep it convenient for both parties. The Coach will remind on things that need to be done or measurements that need to be taken. They can also help you understand what needs to be done if there is any confusion on your part. We are your partner in the fight against Alzheimer’s, Cognitive Impairment, Dementia or Memory Loss. We don’t leave you to fight it alone.
DO YOU HAVE FINANCING AVAILABLE FOR DEDUCTIBLES, CO-PAYS AND SUPPLEMENTS?
Yes. We work with a lender who will lend without even doing a credit check. You can also determine how much you want to pay each month. That way you can spread your payments over as many months as you want up to 99 months. This is amazing as it enables you to get the care you need right now and start on your path to improvement.
