Yes here at Big Apple Acupuncture insurance is accepted. There are no-copays and what your insurance company does not cover you are not liable for. Plain and simple. Please bring your ID and insurance cards on your first treatment and we will see if your particular insurance is accepted for acupuncture coverage. By the second treatment we will know what coverage you are eligible for. As of now the carriers that have the most plans that coverage acupuncture are United Health, Cigna and Blue Cross/Shield. There are others but these have the most so far. If your insurance plan does not accept acupuncture or if you do not have insurance don’t worry we have sliding scale treatment plans available for you as well!
As our health care laws evolve it is our hope that more insurance carriers provide coverage for alternative medicines. In the end it is the people who decide. As more patients request holistic medicine therapies from their insurance providers, more opportunities for alternative medicine will become available. So if when you ask your provider if acupuncture insurance is accepted underneath your plan and they say no it is up to you to request which plans actually cover acupuncture. If they say none ask them why not? This is the easiest way to propagate change.
It is always great to see patients whose health care insurance is accepted for acupuncture coverage. The rising costs of everyday living coupled with stagnate wages for many have made using insurance critical. Rest assured that I will be more than happy to accept your insurance once we have you pre-authorized.
