Fees and Insurance
Our office accepts many insurance plans that cover acupuncture and has a billing department to process all claims. Please have your insurance coverage verified prior to scheduling an appointment if it will be a deciding factor for you in initiating care. Here is a list of popular insurance companies that we may be able to bill for office visits (it will depend on your specific policy):
- United HealthCare
- Anthem Blue Cross PPO
- Blue Shield Federal and Medicare Supplemental plans, Blue Cross Blue Shield combined PPO plans (we no longer accept Blue Shield self-purchased plans through Covered California or off the exchange)
- TriWest Healthcare Alliance/Veterans’ Affairs
- Great West
- Harrington Health
- Personal Injury Claims (car accidents)
- Worker’s Compensation Claims (injury on the job)
There are more companies, but those listed above are the most common. If you are unsure which plan you have, please contact us. The plans listed above must have acupuncture benefits/coverage on them.
We are in-network with TriWest Healthcare, Blue Shield PPO Federal (those of US government employees) and Blue Shield PPO Medicare supplemental plans . We are an out-of-network provider for all other plans.
We are proud to be accepted into the Veterans’ choice program and offer acupuncture to our Veterans at no cost to them. We simply need a referral from the VA to get started. Contact us for more info!
If you have insurance, please submit your insurance information here to have your benefits verified. Or you may call us directly and provide your information over the phone. When you call please be prepared to give your full name, date of birth, the name of your insurance plan and the member ID number on your insurance card. We will get back to you in 1-2 business days with your coverage information.
Acupuncture is a fully-approved medical expense under Health Savings Accounts and Flex-Spending Accounts (thus you can use your HSA/FSA card to pay for treatments).
