New Patient Information

Thank you for your interest in the Bateman Horne Center (BHC). We are a nonprofit Center of Excellence engaged in research, medical education, and clinical consulting specifically for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Fibromyalgia (FM), and other related illnesses.


Please complete an evaluation process to determine if you are eligible to participate. BHC offers two options:

Establishing Patient Care:
BHC provides specialty medical care and requires all patients to have a primary care provider. An annual membership fee is charged for the unique services we provide that are not covered by insurance. In addition, BHC bills insurance for applicable contracted services and patients are responsible for normal co-pays and deductibles. BHC does not accept new patients on chronic daily opioids.
A more detailed terms of engagement is available here.

Virtual Consult:
BHC is increasing access to information offering secure video consults with a BHC provider. This one-on-one consultation about your illness is to help you and your provider. It may also help establish realistic expectations for individuals considering travel to Utah to become a patient who has met other eligibility requirements. This does not constitute a traditional doctor-patient relationship in which a BHC provider assumes responsibility for your medical care.

BHC virtual consults are billed in advance on a cash-only basis per hour of videoconference.
