Insurance Coverage and Payment Options


Is Acupuncture Treatment Covered by Health Insurance?

Some PPO policies cover acupuncture. Most HMOs don’t cover it, but they may entitle you to receive some discount from a participating provider. Herbal medicine is usually not covered, but your health spending benefits mostly cover these natural therapies. Check with your plan for specific coverage.

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Aetna

  • Preferred Care Partners
  • Other insurance providers — please call to ask if we accept your insurance

Is Acupuncture Worth It?

Acupuncture will invigorate your blood circulation, strengthen your immune system to increase your body’s natural defenses, balance your hormones, improve your organ function and metabolism, promote your body’s own healing process, relax your mind, and keep you happy.

This treatment plays a very important role in preventive care and delaying aging. Acupuncture is a great natural therapy that will fit into the current “patient-centered integrative health care” system.
