Fees and Insurance

Our office accepts many PPO 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.  KAISER WILL NOT COVER OUR SERVICES.  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):

  • Aetna
  • Cigna
  • United HealthCare
  • Anthem Blue Cross PPO issued by Google and Microsoft only
  • TriWest Healthcare Alliance/Veterans’ Affairs
  • PacifiCare
  • Guardian
  • Great West
  • Harrington Health
  • Humana
  • Personal Injury Claims (car accidents)
  • Some Worker’s Compensation Claims (injury on the job)

As of September, 2021 we are no longer accepting Blue Shield of CA plans (so sorry!). 

There are more insurance companies we may be able to bill, but those listed above are the most common.  If you are unsure which plan you have, please contact us.  Plans must have out-of-network acupuncture benefits/coverage on them. 

We are in-network with TriWest Healthcare but 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).  


If you do not have insurance that covers acupuncture, or are under-insured, these are our out-of-pocket rates: 

Initial consultation, exam, acupuncture & treatment plan (first-time patient; 1.5 hours): $215

Initial consultation, exam, and acupuncture for Fertility patients (1.5 hours): $245 (we incur substantially more training for reproductive medicine and thus charge an additional fee)

Follow-up acupuncture treatment (returning patients; 1-1.25 hours):  $125

Herbal medicine consultation (20-30 minutes): $70

*$10 discount each treatment if paying with cash.  

*3% processing fee for paying with a credit card
