Cost and Availability

One session of our world-class acupuncture is typically 60 minute long. Our price is $150 per session.
We do not work directly with any insurance companies but will provide superbills with codes for you to submit the claims to your insurance company. Please check with your insurance company for out-of-network coverage.
We are a Medicare approved physical therapy provider so we can bill Medicare for PT if you have the original Medicare (not Medicare Advantage) as your primary insurance and you have a prescription for PT from your physician. Acupuncture is not covered by Medicare so we cannot bill Medicare for it (see note below).

Note: Medicare has recently approved acupuncture treatment of one condition: chronic low back pain. The acupuncture treatment, however, needs to be done by a physician, or someone under a physician’s supervision.  Since we are an independent clinic and are not under any physician’s supervision, we will not be able to bill acupuncture to Medicare, even for chronic low back pain.

We are out of network with commercial insurance companies so we can provide the best health care to our patients. If you have commercial health insurance coverage, please check your benefits with your insurance company. We have helped many patients to successfully get reimbursed by providing them with the “superbills” that contain all the necessary information and communicating with their insurance companies. The reimbursement rate is totally up to their insurance plans. Most people with coverage get 60-80% reimbursement, while a few do get 100% reimbursement and others none.

How to determine your insurance benefits for acupuncture

  1. Call the toll free number for customer service on your insurance card.  Select the option that will allow you to speak with a customer service provider, not an automated system.

  2. Ask the customer service provider to quote your acupuncture benefits in general.

  3. Make sure the customer service provider understands you are seeing an out-of-network provider.

  4. What you need to know:
    Do you have a deductible? Yes/No
    If yes, how much is it? How much has already been met?

  • What percentage of reimbursement do you have for an out-of-network provider?
  • Is there a dollar amount or visit limit per year? If yes, what is it?
  • Do they require a special form to be filled out to submit a claim? If yes, how do you obtain it? What is the mailing address you should submit claims? Is there a website where you can submit the claim?
