Did you know…
Many insurance companies including Medicare cover some or all of the cost of Acupuncture treatments?
Each insurance company is different. Here are some questions to ask prior to your treatment:
- Do you cover Acupuncture
- For what conditions
- What is my deductible
- How many sessions are covered
- Is a referral needed
Currently, I do not bill insurance directly, however I do provide all the information needed in order for you to submit the claim to your insurance company.
You provide payment upfront, and I give you a “superbill” with the ICD10 codes and CPT codes needed for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
I accept cash, check and credit card payments.
Medicare and Acupuncture…New for 2021
According to https://www.medicare.gov/coverage/acupuncture
Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers up to 12 acupuncture visits in 90 days for chronic low back pain.
Medicare covers an additional 8 sessions if you show improvement.
If your doctor decides your chronic low back pain isn’t improving or is getting worse, then Medicare won’t cover your treatments.
No more than 20 acupuncture treatments can be given yearly.
Acupuncture must be provided by a physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner with a Masters Degree in Acupuncture who is licensed to practice acupuncture.
I meet all of the requirements set forth by Medicare.
Per online chat with Medicare.gov on 8/287/21…A referral from your physician is not necessary for Medicare to cover acupuncture.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
