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 that will work with me:

  • 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. If you’d like to know if your health insurance provides acupuncture coverage for services that I provide, please download, complete, and email ( or fax (925-403-1001) the Acupuncture Insurance Coverage Inquiry Form, along with digital photos of the front and back of your Health Insurance Card. 

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.
