Insurance Information

Veterans:

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

Medicare/Medicaid:

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.

HRA/HSA/FSA Plans:

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.
