My office can check your insurance benefits to let you know the details of your coverage. If you have acupuncture coverage, we will work with your insurance directly for reimbursement.

Patients are asked to make any schedule changes or cancellations prior to 24 hours of their scheduled time. Patients will be charged $100 for cancellations made within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment. Insurance does not cover missed appointments, so insurance patients will need to pay out-of-pocket for this fee.
