Many insurance companies do cover acupuncture. Our clinic is on many insurance panels in Oregon, and we work successfully with Personal Injury Protection for acupuncture benefits. Go to your insurance company web site or call the number listed on your card for further information. You will want to get specific answers to the following questions:
- Is acupuncture a covered benefit on my current insurance plan?
- What is my total benefit (i.e. how many treatments per year, or dollar amount)
- What is my deductible?
- Have I met any of that deductible this year?
Another option is to simply bring in your insurance card to your first visit. With the information on your card, your birth date and social security number we can call the insurance company and get that information for you.
Please note: if you have been in an automobile accident within the last 12 months and are currently undergoing chiropractic, physical therapy, or other medical care for injuries sustained you can use your PIP benefits for acupuncture treatment. What’s more, you do not need a referral to do so.
