Insurance coverage for acupuncture has undergone many changes over the last several years, and benefits have been known to change even though you may still be with the same company (as an employee) using the same medical insurance. Many plans that accept acupuncture will only accept claims for chronic pain (sometimes limited to only back or knee pain) and nausea, so your reason for coming to acupuncture may not be covered.
Unfortunately, experience has shown that the insurance companies will not stand behind their verbal quotes until a claim is submitted and evaluated for payment.
I cannot submit a claim to any HMO plans, Medicare or MediCal. So if you are covered by an HMO, Medicare or MediCal, those treatments would be out-of-pocket for you, and not covered by insurance.
I am not in-network for any insurance company.
So although I will not bill your insurance, I’m happy to provide a Statement of Services for you to submit, if your plan covers acupuncture.
I am also happy to accept payments from Health Savings Accounts, and can provide a statement of services for your provider. A Health Savings Account often offers more flexibility covering acupuncture than a managed plan.
