We are fortunate to live in a state where health insurance often covers part of the cost of acupuncture treatment and in some cases a portion of the initial exam. Please be aware that health insurance benefits often change annually. It is your responsibility to know your benefits and we encourage you to contact your insurance company for information and to review all Explanation of Benefits carefully for your out-of-pocket costs.

You are financially responsible at the time service for each of the following: meeting annual deductibles or your co-pay or your co-insurance. We will verify your insurance benefits prior to your first visit and in most instances, will submit insurance bills for you.

If you do not see your insurance company listed here please contact our office. We are happy to help!
