Acupuncture is a covered medical expense under many Flex Plans. Additionally, some plans may reimburse you for the cost of Chinese herbal medicine. Please check with your Flex Plan administrator to make sure that your particular plan covers acupuncture treatments and/or the cost of Chinese herbal medicine. These plans usually give you a Visa or Master Card Logo card for these medical expenses. They require a copy of your super-bill as verification of your service; just remind our staff that you need a copy for this reason.
The costs of acupuncture and herbal medicines are generally considered deductible as medical expenses. Which is usually medical expenses exceeding 7.5% of your adjusted gross income. For further information please consult your tax advisor and/or refer to IRS Publication 502 for more details.
Few health insurance companies in the region currently cover acupuncture and herbal therapies. However, some companies offer varying levels of coverage. Medicaid and Medicare do not provide coverage. As more and more insurance companies begin to understand the therapeutic benefit and long term cost savings of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, insurance coverage will be expanded. It is always best to check with your health insurance company first in order to see if you have eligibility and coverage for our services.
Our clinic, at this time, does not submit (or bill) claims to insurance companies. But if your insurance company will reimburse you for part or all of your treatment, our office will provide the necessary legal documentation (i.e. Super-bill, copy of your treatment notes, etc.) in order for you to obtain reimbursement from your health insurance company. We will always do our best to serve your needs.
