We accept most medical insurance plans. Here are some of the major carriers and networks we currently participate in:
Anthem Blue Cross
ASH (American Specialty Health)
If Dr. Jee is an out-of-network provider for your insurance plan, you may still have acupuncture coverage by checking with your insurance company for any out-of-network acupuncture benefits. You would initially pay at the time of your treatment the above self-pay rates, receive a superbill from our office, and submit the superbill directly to your insurance company for any reimbursement.
We do not accept Medicare because acupuncture is not currently a covered benefit. However, some Medicare Supplemental Plans may cover acupuncture. Please call your supplemental carrier to find out and see below for guidance when calling.
We can take requests to check your insurance coverage for acupuncture. Please call our office at (925) 967-2889. We do our best to honor these requests within 24 hours. However, the fastest way to find out is by contacting your insurance company directly.
How to check with your insurance company for acupuncture benefits:
1) Call your insurance company. The phone number is usually found on your insurance card.
2) Ask if you have any acupuncture benefits. If you do, continue to ask the following:
Are there any limitations to what is covered for acupuncture treatment? For example, some plans only cover acupuncture in lieu of anesthesia or nausea from chemotherapy or pregnancy.
Are the benefits in-network or out-of-network? Coverage can differ widely as well as deductibles.
What are the deductibles, if any? Sometimes deductibles apply and sometimes they are waived. If they do apply and you haven’t met your deductible yet, you will need to pay the full negotiated rates of your insurance company. These payments will go towards meeting your deductible.
Are there any co-pays and co-insurance? They can apply even after meeting your deductible.
Is a referral required for acupuncture from a primary care physician? (If you have acupuncture coverage through ASH, the referral must be sent directly from your primary care physician’s office to ASH.)
