Some Insurance Plans
have Acupuncture Coverage!
At Acu Chatt, we do not work with any insurance companies directly.
If you have coverage, we are happy to provide you with something called a Super Bill which you can send in to your insurance company to be reimbursed for any potential coverage your plan has! It is actually really easy.
The best way to find out about your coverage is to Verify Your Insurance by calling the number on the back of your insurance card. Make sure to ask them if their are any limitations on conditions covered. They will be happy to review your coverage with you!
In most cases, we are considered an “out of network provider” for acupuncture. This typically does not make a big impact on your coverage if your plan includes acupuncture.
(We of course cannot guarantee any reimbursement by your insurance company.)
Blue Cross Blue Shield TN / United Healthcare / Cigna –
All offer some plans that cover acupuncture, but individual coverage does vary. Typically their plans cover musculoskeletal issues like neck or back pain, but many have blanket coverage for anything acupuncture up to a certain number of treatments.
At this time, Medicare plans cover 12 visits for low back pain, with the option to extend with MD orders.
* Sometimes, supplemental plans will cover acupuncture, and it is best to call and confirm with them.
VA Insurance –
Tricare and Triwest do cover acupuncture to some degree. The best way to find out is to complete the insurance verification process and get a referral through VA doctors.
Other Insurance Companys Also May Cover Acupuncture
If you don’t see your insurance company listed above, don’t worry! There are so many plans and companies that it is impossible to list them all.
Just call and ask your insurance company to find out what your coverage is! If all else fails, we are happy to provide a superbill and see how it goes!
