Frequently Asked Questions

Which insurance plans do you accept?

Many health insurance plans in California cover acupuncture. We work with patients under the insurance companies listed above, and more. All plans are different. Insurance plans may differ, even within the same carrier! Many have restrictions or deductibles that must be met before coverage begins. So please verify your insurance to confirm the details of your specific policy.

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 do I do if insurance does not cover my acupuncture treatment?

If your insurance does not cover your treatment, then you may be able to use your receipts as tax-deductible medical expenses. If you have a Health Savings Account (HSA), then we can charge that and write you a superbill, if needed.

What 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.

What is a deductible? 

An insurance deductible is the amount paid out of pocket by the patient before the insurance company will pay for any billed services.  The amount of the deductible depends on the plan.

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 not currently accepting Worker's Compensation patients.
