Will my insurance cover acupuncture?

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. Give us a call at 503-383-9796.
