FEES & INSURANCE
We are happy to bill your insurance directly for you if you have acupuncture benefits. As a general rule, PPO insurance plans may cover some or all of your office visit. HMO plans by nature require you to stay within their network and generally do not cover our fees. (In some cases, if the HMO network does not offer acupuncture in-network, they allow their insured to seek acupuncture out of network and will cover it.) Just because you have a PPO plan, does not automatically mean you have benefits. It depends on the actual plan and inclusions and limitations of that plan, and benefits are dependent on your annual deductibles being met and a per visit co-pay may apply. Because of all these factors, please fill out the form below so that we can call your insurance and verify your benefits for you so you will know any out of pocket expenses before hand. If you are a candidate for a personal injury case or workers' compensation claim, please follow the link below. We look forward to hearing from you.
IN- NETWORK PPO's
We are IN-NETWORK with BLUE SHIELD of CA and some of the BLUE CROSS/BLUE SHIELD of other states that are billed through BLUE SHIELD in CA. This includes BLUE SHIELD COVERED CALIFORNIA plans. We are also IN-NETWORK with AETNA and its subsidiary companies such as "MERITAIN HEALTH".
OUT- OF-NETWORK PPO's
We are OUT-OF-NETWORK with all other PPO's. The most common list: CIGNA, BLUE CROSS, UNITED HEALTHCARE, HEALTHNET. Just because we are OUT-OF-NETWORK with these insurance plans, does not mean you do not have coverage.

DIAGNOSTIC TESTING FEES
Generally speaking, blood chemistry testing is covered through your insurance if it is a PPO insurance plan. HMO plans require you to get blood work at your HMO to which you are assigned to and have limitations to what can be tested. Specialty testing such as breath tests, stool tests, saliva tests,and some urine tests are generally not covered by insurance. Please contact the office for pricing of specific tests.
