Acupuncture Insurance Coverage

Many healthcare insurance plans have acupuncture as a covered modality with various ranges of reimbursement. We can bill your insurance directly for acupuncture related procedures and diagnoses if you have the appropriate type of acupuncture insurance coverage.

These are some of the more common insurance companies with which I work:


  • Aetna
  • Blue Cross PPO
  • Blue Shield PPO, EPO
  • Cigna
  • Healthsmart
  • United Healthcare


I am also a member of the City and County of San Francisco Medical Provider Network that services city employees, primarily Workers’ Comp.

Acupuncture insurance coverage depends on your individual plan. My office can verify your acupuncture benefits if you send an email with the following information:


  • Copy of the front and back of your health insurance card (scan or photo, or fax to 925-403-1001)
  • Your Full Name, Home Address, Date of Birth, Marital Status, and Employment Status
  • If the health plan is through your spouse, their Full Name and Date of Birth
  • The health condition for which you’d like to get treated


I will contact you within 2 working days to verify benefits.

Health Savings Accounts

Acupuncture is considered a legitimate expense for Health Savings Accounts.

Workers’ Comp

Workers’ Comp cases are accepted with proper authorization. I treat patients as a physician within the Workers’ Comp system working with your Primary Treating Provider. I do not manage cases as a Primary Treating Provider.

Personal Injury

I accept Personal Injury cases with proper documentation.

Financial Hardship

Financial Hardship Waivers are available to limit out-of-pocket expenses.
