Does insurance cover acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the CAM therapies that are more commonly covered by insurance. However, you should check with your insurer before you start treatment to see whether acupuncture will be covered for your condition and, if so, to what extent. Some insurance plans may require preauthorization for acupuncture. We do not bill to the insurance company or collect from them. We expect payment from you at the time of appointment. You can use the receipt from us to obtain reimbursement from your insurance company if they do so.
