Does Insurance Cover Acupuncture?
Yes! More and more insurance companies and insurance plans cover acupuncture. If you have insurance all you have to do is call and check your benefits. Make sure you ask if you have acupuncture coverage that is done by a licensed acupuncturist. Check what your deductible is and what percent is covered and what your copay is. Check for what pains and illness are covered as well. If you have coverage we will bill your insurance directly (including BlueCross BlueShield of Illinois), just as they do at your MD's office. We can check benefits on both UnitedHealthCare and Cigna. To do this, we would need your Member ID number and date of birth. You would simply fax us a copy of your Health Insurance Card, Driver's License or State ID, and a return contact phone number or e-mail.
