Our clients are often surprised to discover their health insurance covers acupuncture. Many group plans and some individual plans have acupuncture benefits. If your plan is a PPO or POS plan, you may have coverage. We understand that calling insurance companies can be a complicated, convoluted, and time consuming process. Instead, please give our office a call with your insurance information ready; our expert staff is happy to check your insurance coverage free of charge.
Below are some of the popular health insurance plans we encounter, which include but are not limited to:
- Anthem Blue Cross
- United HealthCare
- Cigna HealthCare
- Blue Shield
- Heath Net PPO
- PacifiCare PPO
- American Life Insurance Co. (ALICO)
- Connecticut General Life Insurance Co.
- One Health Plan/Great West
Please note that these coverages listed are a very brief list of companies who cover acupuncture. In addition, please remember that insurance companies are very sensitive to your needs, and your case may be the exception. Our office will do our best to confirm these benefits for you.
Covered California covers acupuncture, we accept Covered Calfornia.
Medicare and Medi-Cal do NOT cover acupuncture so far, so we do NOT accept Mediare and Medi-Cal.
Workers Compensation Insurance
Workers Compensation insurance covers 100% of necessary medical treatment for injuries resulting from one’s occupation. If you have an open Workers Comp claim, or believe that your condition arose as the result of your occupation, you may have benefits. Please contact us. We will instruct you on how to obtain a referral from your primary physician and authorization from your adjuster.
Personal Injury Protection covers acupuncture treatments. If you suffer from pain, anxiety or limited range of motion after an accident, you can start your acupuncture treatment without a doctor’s referral. The sooner you receive treatment, the faster a full recovery will be. Your insurance company or the other party’s insurance company will be responsible for the medical bill. Give us a call with your case claim number and we will find out your exact coverage for the auto injury.
