Please, call your insurance company and ask if it covers acupuncture or not. Insurance companies have different plans and some of them do not cover acupuncture.Please,do not forget to ask your insurance provider if you have a deductible, what percentage of the bill they cover, how many treatments are covered, and if there are any limitations on diagnosis codes.
If you do call your insurance company, please, inquire whether your policy includes treatments from a licensed
acupuncturist. Some plans only permit you to have acupuncture from a medical doctor. Please, understand that most medical doctors, who perform acupuncture, only have a certificate in acupuncture, not a degree. This means that they have completed a few weekends and watched some videos for their training. My training was a 4-year master's program, plus continuing education classes to improve and deepen my knowledge, and maintain certification with the NCCAOM.
