Health Insurance Policy:
Most insurance companies in North Carolina do not include acupuncture as a covered benefit. Some insurance companies (such as Federal BCBS, BCBS of NY, BCBS of CA, United Heathcare, Cigna) do include acupuncture as a covered benefit. And other insurance companies include acupuncture as part of affinity programs, or discounted services in exchange for promotion of those services (such as BCBS of NC, Duke Select).
Triangle Acupuncture Clinic does not bill insurance directly as most patients do not have covered acupuncture benefits. We do provide superbills (or itemized receipts with all necessary procedure and diagnosis codes) that allow individuals with covered benefits, health savings accounts, etc to be reimbursed accordingly. We also offer a discounted insurance rate for those plans that do not cover acupuncture directly. And cash paying individuals may receive discounted rates.
Please call your specific insurance plan to inquire what benefits you are entitled to.
