Frequently Asked Questions

Which insurance plans do you accept?

Many California health insurance plans cover acupuncture. We work with patients under the insurance companies listed above, and more. Insurance plans may differ, even within the same carrier! Many have restrictions or deductibles that must be met before coverage begins. Jiling is in-network with insurance companies that cover most Patagonia employees and federal employees. Please verify your insurance to confirm the details of your specific policy before your appointment.

What acupuncture services will insurance cover?

Different insurance plans have different coverage policies for acupuncture and allied modalities that may be incorporated during your treatment. Insurance usually does not cover the cost of herbs.

Can I get treatment with you before we finish confirming benefits? 

Yes! You can get treatment before your insurance verification is complete. You will be charged the amount of a normal visit. If you are covered by insurance, then we will reimburse any excess amount paid.

What if insurance does not cover acupuncture?

The listed services & fees includes an out-of-pocket discount that we hope makes treatment reasonably priced while supporting optimal care. Other options: We accept Health Savings Account (HSA) and Flex Spending Account (FSA) plans. We can write you a superbill for you to submit to your insurance company. You may be able to submit your receipts as tax-deductible medical expenses.

Do you accept HSA or FSA cards?

Yes! Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) are a convenient way to pay for both acupuncture and herbs. We are happy to accept either, and can write a superbill if necessary. Please contact your employer for details, if applicable.

Do you accept Medicare?

Medicare, under certain circumstances, will only cover acupuncture for low back pain. Due to current legal and procedural guidelines, acupuncturists cannot bill Medicare directly. You can seek reimbursement from Medicare directly with (1) proof of payment or a superbill, and (2) form HCFA1490S. This requires upfront payment and processing effort on your part: fill out the forms, mail them to Medicare, and wait. There is no guarantee of payment. If you are interested in attempting this, then we will happily provide a superbill!

Do you accept Worker's Compensation? 

We are currently not accepting Worker's Compensation patients.

Do you accept Kaiser, Anthem or American Specialty Health?

Unfortunately, Kaiser, Anthem, and other American Specialty Health insurance policies usually either do not cover our services, and/ or have a high deductible that is unreachable by the end of the year. We are happy to write you a superbill to submit to your insurance provider. Or, you can call your insurance company to request a local in-network provider.

Do you accept out-of-state patients?

Jiling is an in-network provider with the California insurance companies listed above. This coverage only extends to California residents. However, she can write a superbill for you to submit to your insurance provider.
