Insurance coverage varies from state to state. In Oregon, most insurance companies offer a plan that does cover acupuncture. Medicare does not pay for acupuncture, but some insurance companies offer a supplemental plan that does. Medicaid offers acupuncture coverage only for certain conditions and you will need a doctor’s referral. We also offer affinity discounts for people who’s insurance does not cover acupuncture to help them with their time of service treatment costs.
Contact your insurance provider to learn what kind of care is covered. Here are a few questions to ask:
- Will my plan cover acupuncture?
- How many visits per calendar year?
- Do I need a referral?
- Do I have a co-pay?
- Do I have a deductible?
- If yes, has it been met?
We are In-Network with most insurance plans in Oregon. If you are in a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) you do not need a referral to receive acupuncture, you can ‘self-refer’ and we will bill your auto insurance using your claim number. Workman’s Comp requires a doctor’s referral, as does The Oregon Health Plan (OHP). If you have questions about whether your insurance will cover acupuncture, we can help find out.
