Did you know we take health insurance?

All of our providers take insurance as out-of-network providers.   We also have providers that take BCBS as in-network providers.
Whether you are using in-network or out-of-network benefits for acupuncture, we help you manage your claims. When using in-network benefits, patients are only responsible for what their insurance asks them to pay.   When you use out-of-network benefits, we collect from patients what their insurance doesn’t pay on their behalf.As a courtesy, we take the hassle out of using your insurance by verifying your benefits and submitting claims on your behalf.  Insurance plans vary, please call our office with your specific insurance information if you have further questions.

Herbal medicine and products are not covered by insurance and therefore always require out-of-pocket payment.

Calling your insurance company and asking if you have acupuncture benefit performed by a Licensed Acupuncturist will provide you with the most comprehensive information on covered services, co-payments, deductible and number of allowed visits per year.  We will bill your insurance company directly and submit the claims on your behalf.

If your insurance company does not provide coverage, we will work with you to ensure your health comes first. If you have a question, please do not hesitate to call 301-530-5308.

Financial Responsibilities

We are legally obligated to collect all applicable co-payments, co-insurance, deductibles and bill for all services.

Payments Accepted:
For your convenience, we accept Master Card, Visa, and check.

Missed Appointments:
If you fail to cancel or change an appointment with 24 hours advanced notice, a charge of $60 fee is applied to your account. This is not covered by insurance and must be paid directly by the patient.

Flexible Spending Accounts:
Most employer flexible spending accounts allow you to use funds for ancillary holistic services.  Check with your employer.

Motor Vehicle Accidents & Personal Injury Protection: If you’ve been involved in an automobile accident and have PIP coverage (Personal Injury Protection), we will accept that insurance with the following conditions: You must have the insurance carrier name, phone number and claims address, the claim number and the date of the accident, and the claims adjustor’s name and phone number. If your PIP is exhausted, we will bill your health insurance directly.  Remember that if you have an HMO that requires referrals, you must obtain valid referrals for all visits in case the PIP carrier denies coverage and we need to file the claim with your health insurance.  We do not bill attorneys and we do not sign Authorization and Assignment for liability cases.
