Fees and Insurance
We make every effort to keep the cost of your treatment affordable. Many
health insurance plans now cover acupuncture treatment for pain or
nausea management, often with a maximum number of covered treatments per
year, so please check with your insurance company regarding coverage. Acupuncture is not covered by Medicare, Medicare Supplemental plans, Medicaid, or Tricare.

We generally submit claims for our patients to all insurance companies other than Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare. We are an in-network provider for the following insurance companies: Blue Cross Blue Shield (all plans including those of CareFirst, Anthem and Federal Employee), United HealthCare, MD-IPA, Foreign Service Benefit Plan, First Health, Multiplan, and PHCS (Private HealthCare Systems). (This list is subject to change.) We participate as out-of-network providers with other health
plans, including Aetna, Cigna, and plans (such as Mail Handlers) that use the Aetna or Cigna provider networks. You should review your health
plan benefits to determine whether acupuncture is covered and for which
conditions. It is very important to note that some Blue Cross and Aetna
insurance plans cover acupuncture only when used in place of anesthesia
during surgery, and some plans cover acupuncture only when an in-network
provider is used. We are not in the network of community-based acupuncturists of the Kaiser Permanente HMO.

If a patient has primary Medicare Part B insurance and secondary health insurance, we will submit claims to the secondary insurance along with a letter explaining that Medicare does not accept claims from acupuncturists. 

Acupuncture is covered under Workers Compensation. We will accept Workers Compensation insurance, if a case has been approved by the patient's employer. This is the patient's responsibility. We are an approved provider for the Office of Workers Compensation program for Federal employees having an approved workers compensation case.
