Most insurance plans in the State of Washington cover acupuncture. Call your company to find out if you have acupuncture benefits.
I am a preferred provider with several insurance companies. I will bill the following insurance plans directly:
- Blue Cross/Blue Shield
- First Choice Health Network
- Group Health Options
- PIP/Auto Injury
If you have insurance with a company other than the ones listed above, check with your company to see if they will allow you to see ‘out of network’ providers.
If you would like me to bill your insurance company, you will be responsible for the portion your insurance company states is “patient responsibility” (copays, coinsurance, etc.).
Please bring your insurance card with you to your first appointment. As a courtesy, I will call once to verify your benefits with your insurance company. I strongly suggest that you call the number on the back of your insurance card and verify your own acupuncture benefits.
The information your insurance company gives you or me regarding your benefits is not a guarantee of payment. Actual benefits are determined once your provider sends the claims to your insurance company in writing. If, for some reason, your insurance company does not pay for your treatment, you will be responsible for all fees.
If you have a copay, it is due at the time of service. I will bill you after I receive notification from your insurance company for the portion, if any, in addition to your copay that they determine is your responsibility.
