Payment Options

 

We currently accept two forms of payment. 

 

Option 1

 

We accept personal check and cash as payment if your health insurance plan doesn't cover acupuncture. We will prepare the forms for you to submit for reimbursement or for your flexible spending plan at your request. To minimize the paper contacts during Covid-19, please refer to our Covid-19 Policy page for payment handling.

  

Option 2

 

We are currently an in-network provider for the following insurance

  • Aetna (Meritain)
  • CIGNA, GWH-CIGNA
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • United Healthcare    

For insurance patients:

Acupuncture is not an essential benefit therefore even our clinic listed as an in-network provider, your specific insurance policy will determine if you have the coverage or not.  If your plan covers acupuncture, you only need to provide the co-payment or co-insurance specified by your plan. 


Some insurance plans not listed will cover acupuncture. If your health insurance plan covers acupuncture treatments and we are an out-of-network provider, you will render our service after receiving the treatment. We will prepare the forms for you to submit for reimbursement.


Many health insurance plans cover 

acupuncture. However, insurance coverage varies from one plan to another. We will give you complete knowledge of your coverage chosen us as either an in-network or an out-of-network provider before you start treatments.


Please call our office to provide insurance information or allow 48 hours for us to verify your insurance coverage after making an appointment request online. We will check on your plan and coverage for you. 

 

We also strongly recommended that you also contact your insurance provider before treatment to clarify your specific plan’s coverage and reimbursement policies. Important questions to ask your insurance provider include:
  • Is acupuncture covered under your specific policy?
  • What is the rate/percentage of reimbursement for acupuncture treatment?
  • How many visits will they pay?  Is this the number of visits per calendar year or per illness?
  • Is there a deductible that needs to be met first? Does your deductible apply to acupuncture treatment? If so, have you met your deductible?
  • Does your policy cover acupuncture treatment for your illness? If coverage is restricted, what diagnoses are covered?
