Acupuncture is covered by many insurance plans. This coverage is usually limited to Acute pain (mostly musculoskeletal pain) or a flareup of chronic pain condition. (Please see Initial Intake Form for more information about this).

Some plans require a prior authorization, a referral, or require you to see a specific practitioner that belongs to a medical group. Call the member services on the back of your insurance card to check your coverage, and see what your specific plan requires.

Our offices will need to confirm your coverage BEFORE your initial visit, otherwise cash rates apply.
