I'm in network with the VA through the VA Community Care Network. If you are a veteran, or you know a veteran, who is experiencing pain, stress, anxiety, and/or PTSD due to their service acupuncture can often help. Through the Community Care Network, acupuncture is provided at no cost to the veteran. Contact the VA for referral
I am not in network for either MO or KS medicaid. Medicare is a more complicated issue. In 2020 Medicare made a rule change to cover acupuncture for low back pain. However, congress has to pass a law to amend the approved Medicare provider list and add licensed acupuncturists - they have not done this as of April 2021. Since I'm not a recognized provider, I cannot bill for Medicare services.
Acupuncture is always a covered benefit on HSA, HRA and FSA plans. Usually these plans will issue a credit card which I can process. If you have a plan that does not issue a card, I can provide a superbill for reimbursement purposes.
Out Of Network Plans:
If you have out of network acupuncture coverage on your insurance plan, I will submit claims for you. Please make sure to call ahead if you're planning on a Saturday appointment so that I can call your insurance provider to confirm coverage and get billing information.
Worker's Comp/Auto Injury:
I will submit claims for Worker's Comp and auto injury. Again, please call during the week with your information if you're planning on a Saturday appointment.
