Use Your Health Insurance

Many people are surprised to learn that they have acupuncture benefits on their health insurance. In addition to cash, check, or credit card at the time of service, I am also an in-network provider for the following health insurance plans: BLUECROSS BLUESHIELD, CIGNA, AETNA, and JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY EMPLOYER HEALTH PROGRAMS. I also accept insurance payments from any other company that offers out-of-network acupuncture benefits on your plan (for example, UnitedHealth often does).*

Acupuncture benefits vary by provider and specific plan. There is often a copay or deductible to be met, or sometimes a plan will only cover specific complaints. If you provide me with your health insurance information at our initial contact, I will be able to report back exactly what is covered. My office will take care of everything.

If you require a referral or preauthorization, we will get those taken care of before you come in.

At your first appointment, you will be given a form to sign, which specifies that you are responsible for any fees your insurance does not cover.

If your plan does not offer in- or out-of-network benefits for acupuncture, it's possible that you can still be reimbursed for your acupuncture treatment. I can provide you with a receipt that is coded in a way your insurance company may accept for partial or full reimbursement. Please contact your insurance company to learn their policies about these reimbursements.
