Paying for Your Treatments:
Payment is due at time of service.
Cash, credit cards, personal or business checks are accepted.
Insurance: When possible, we will bill your insurance company directly, after your co-pay. This is common for personal injury, workers compensation and some health plans. If your insurance does not allow direct bill, many health insurance companies reimburse for acupuncture treatments. We are happy to give you a detailed receipt that you may submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement of your acupuncture fees, to the limits your policy provides. Contact your insurer for more information. Despite insurance coverage, the patient remains responsible for all charges until paid.
If you have a Health Savings Account with your employer, these allow you use pre-tax dollars to pay for medical treatment, including acupuncture. Ask your employer's human resources department for more information.
Finally, under recent rule changes from the IRS, acupuncture may now be considered a deductible medical expense if you itemize your taxes. Contact your accountant, tax preparer or the IRS for more information.
