Fees and Insurance

Fees and Insurance:

Truly Affordable Healthcare:

Individual treatments are performed in a quiet, open setting. We offer a sliding fee scale that makes acupuncture affordable, so you can receive the number of treatments you may need to get the maximum benefit from acupuncture.

Sliding Scale $25.00 – $50.00:

We ask that you pay what you can afford using our sliding scale of $25-$50.

New patients pay a one-time additional $10.00 fee added to our sliding scale (first visit is $35-$60).

We never turn away patients based upon ability to pay. For patients who are disabled, or on a fixed income, please speak with us if you cannot afford our usual rates.

We appreciate that those who can afford to pay a little more subsidize patients who pay less. Working together as a community allows everyone to receive affordable treatment!

Payment Methods:

Patients pay the day of the visit and may pay by cash, check, or credit card. We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover.

We Do Not Accept Insurance:

Most insurance companies do not offer coverage for acupuncture. But that’s ok, because our sliding scale is probably lower than your insurance co-pay would be!

We do not participate in any insurance plans, discount networks, workers compensation, no fault, VA reimbursement, etc. Medicare does not cover acupuncture.

Because we offer a sliding scale we never bill insurance companies directly for services. Patients must pay for their treatments at the time of service, as we do not accept insurance reimbursement.

​In the event you do have insurance coverage, we are happy to provide an itemized receipt to you for you to submit for reimbursement.

​Medical Reimbursement Accounts:

Many patients take advantage of Medical Reimbursement Accounts to pay for their treatment with pre-tax dollars. If you do not currently have a Medical Reimbursement Account speak to your employer about setting one up for you. Acupuncture is a covered expense under these accounts and an itemized receipt is always available upon request.

Disability, Workers Compensation, No Fault Claims:

Before you submit our name for these claims please note that acupuncture licensing in the State of New York does not allow us to perform medical evaluations for workers compensation, disability, or no fault claims.

​Insurance companies and lawyers love to contact us to supply evidence to support claims you may have, evidence that we cannot provide, and this can delay your claim.

​As with other insurance that may cover acupuncture, you must pay for your treatment and submit your receipt to them for any reimbursement — we do not bill insurance companies directly, nor do we accept reimbursement from them.
