Insurance

Weiss Acupuncture is an in-network provider for United Health Care and an out-of-network provider for most other insurance plans. 


Insurance coverage for acupuncture treatments varies widely from one plan to another—even among plans offered by the same company.  

Please contact your insurance provider before treatment to clarify your specific plan’s reimbursement policies.  


Here are a list of questions to ask of your insurance provider.  Use the phone number for member services, which should be on your insurance card.  Write down the date, time, and name of the person with whom you are speaking.  

  • Do I have acupuncture coverage on my policy?
  • Must my acupuncturist be in-network, or does my policy allow treatment from an out-of-network provider?
  • How many visits are covered per calendar year?  Are there annual dollar limits for acupuncture?
  • Is this combined with other therapies such as massage or chiropractic? 
  • Do I need a referral from an MD or PCP to get coverage?
  • What is the co-pay or co-insurance? Is it a percentage or a flat dollar amount?
  • Does acupuncture apply to my deductible?  If so, have I met it?
  • Does acupuncture coverage only apply for certain conditions/diagnoses?  If so, what are they? 
  • Before you hang up, be sure to ask them if there is anything else they can suggest to help the process go smoothly.  Congratulations for taking responsibility for your health and health care!

Important:  The information your insurance company gives you regarding your benefits is  not a guarantee of payment .  Actual benefits are determined once your provider sends the claims to your insurance company in writing.
