Yes ! Eligible Parsley Health members can use their insurance to pay for medical visits and pay a lower annual membership fee. Parsley is in network with select major insurance plans in New York and California, covering 10+ million people. We’re working hard to expand access to in-network memberships to make Parsley’s root-cause resolution approach to healthcare even more accessible.
Go here to find out if you're eligible for in-network coverage. Want to learn more about out-of-network coverage? Call the member services phone number on the back of your insurance card. We recommend asking your insurance company what your specific out of network benefits are and what your potential reimbursement may be.
Many of our members use their FSA/HSA to pay for clinical fees, specialty tests, and supplements. However, we recommend checking with your FSA/HSA company/carrier for more information and details as to how you can use these funds.
In case there is any additional documentation you need, we’re more than happy to help get you the necessary paperwork.

The short answer: you still need to have an OB-GYN.
In order to get the best care, well-woman exams and Pap smears should be done by doctors who do them routinely and specialize in gynecology. But Parsley Health does do a lot of women’s health that your OB-GYN probably doesn’t do from a functional medicine perspective:
Testing through traditional healthcare is often very limited. Your Parsley medical team will use their in-depth knowledge of your health to advise on advanced specialty tests to get to the bottom of your symptoms. From there, they can design a personalized care plan that’s tailored to your needs and goals.
We help you select tests that fit your health goals, insurance, and budget. During your first visit with your medical provider, you'll spend time exploring your health goals and reviewing testing options together. This may include blood work, at-home advanced specialty testing, or a combination of the two. (We recommend you complete blood work at least two weeks ahead of your next follow-up visit with your medical provider).
The costs of lab work and specialty tests are not included in the membership fee. However, lab work is usually covered by insurance. Based on your health needs and goals, your Parsley medical provider may recommend you have additional specialty testing done. This is optional, but tests range in cost from $100—$350.
All of the advanced testing that we do is unique to each person. No two members will have the same testing, but some frequently recommended specialty tests look at food allergies or sensitivities, cortisol and other hormones, genetics, gut health , and toxic metal or mold levels. These can include blood, saliva, urine, and stool tests. Our medical providers are experts in interpreting these advanced tests for you.
