An acupuncturist is considered a primary care provider and a referral may or may not be required for insurance purposes. Many insurance companies do cover acupuncture treatment.
As a value-add we offer web-based insurance claim processing on your behalf for participating insurers. In addition to convenience, having a direct link between us and your insurer leads to faster claims processing and increased accuracy.
Please note that while many insurance policies do cover acupuncture care, this office makes no representation that yours does. Insurance policies vary greatly in terms of patient eligibility, provider eligibility and percentage of coverage for acupuncture care. Because of the variance from one insurance policy to another, we require that you, the patient, be personally responsible for confirming eligibility and for the payment of any product or service fees not eligible for coverage. It is your responsibility to research possibilities of any further reimbursement from your insurance company for any services or amounts denied.
