Fees & Insurance
I am enrolled with several insurance companies including BCBS, CIGNA, Crescent Provider Network, Medicare, and North Carolina Medicaid. If you have another insurance plan for which I am not "in network" billing may be done as an "out of network provider." Patients are encouraged to check with their insurance companies about coverage for acupuncture. However,even if acupuncture is not a covered procedure because I am a licensed physician these visits may often be covered in the same way as a regular doctor visit. The insurance company will know that acupuncture was performed and refuse to pay for it, however they may still offer reimbursement for the office visit itself. Coverage for other techniques may also be possible. People without insurance are encouraged to speak to me about sliding scale alternatives. You are important. Please allow me to help you figure out a way to get this kind of care.
Additionally, I will submit bills for you. Copayment will be made at the time of service. I accept payment in the form of cash or check only at this time.
