Yes! MDP allows you to access functional lab testing for your clients. But at the end of the day, you are giving clients the ability to self-test, which is legal.
The client. We call this a “private-pay” business model, where the client directly covers the cost.
It depends. Some lab tests must be ordered directly through a lab company and require no fee. Thanks to FDN Founder Reed Davis’ strong, long-standing relationship with these lab companies, you have access to these “Direct Order” tests through MDP.
On the other hand, some tests must be ordered through our program and require a $75 fee. These tests include a 30-minute case review session with an FDN Clinical Advisor who will help you interpret the results based on our unique FDN methodology.
Everything that happens on the back-end to keep this program up and running–processing orders, shipping tests, research on new tests for the program, the FDN Clinical Advisor consult, and general administration.
You, the FDNP, are responsible for paying the fees. We recommend including this in the cost of your health coaching program and charging the client for any re-testing, if it’s necessary.
FDN trainees (active students) can run the basic labs on themselves that are taught inside the certification program. All FDN graduates get access to the full test list – so long as you are in good standing, which means you:
Practice the FDN philosophy as you were taught and do not step outside your scope
Get recertified every 2 years
Through an order form inside FDN Connect (your membership portal). You’ll be asked basic information about your client, which should take about 2-5 minutes to complete.
