More and more insurance companies are including acupuncture treatments in their policies. Consult your insurer about your coverage. Some plans that do not normally cover acupuncture will pay for treatments if a physician recommends them. Full payment is required at the time of treatment. You will receive a superbill to summit for reimbursement. Usually, there is a two week turnaround on repayment. In addition, Flex Spending Dollars can be used towards both acupuncture treatments and herbal formulas.
