A standard one-hour follow-up treatment is $75. The typical first time visit fee for a new patient is $130. Your initial visit will include a comprehensive health history, exam and acupuncture treatment with/without adjunct therapies.
All prices reflect a discount for payment at the time of service, and the fee is usually higher if we bill insurance companies directly. If you would like, we will be happy to provide you with a copy of our complete fee schedule.
We use a sliding scale to provide affordable, high quality treatments to everyone who needs acupuncture. (Income verification required. Please contact us for more information.) We also have several discount options for students, seniors and military personnel.
Failure to show up for your appointment or not canceling 24 hours in advance will result in a charge of up to $40.00.
Does Insurance Cover Acupuncture?
Some insurance plans do reimburse for acupuncture. It’s your responsibility to call directly and ask to find out whether yours will do. The number can be found on your insurance card. Some health plans impose restrictions on their members, such as limiting the number of treatments and/or the conditions treated, so be sure to check on them. For those whose insurance covers acupuncture, we can provide all necessary documents for you to process a claim, or bill insurance companies directly for you. You are responsible to pay for copayments, deductibles and/or the fee which is not covered by insurance.
If you don’t have benefits, you may have what’s called an “Affinity Program”. This is an arrangement that the insurance company has with certain acupuncturists to offer their members treatments at a discounted price.
