We accept most medical insurance plans. We are in-network with:
Anthem Blue Cross
ASH (American Specialty Health)
Blue Cross (We are out-of-network for Blue Shield of CA)
If Dr. Jee is an out-of-network provider for your insurance plan, you may still have acupuncture coverage. You would initially pay our office the above self-pay rates and receive a superbill from our office to submit directly to your insurance company for any reimbursement.
We do not accept Medicare because acupuncture is not currently a covered benefit. However, some Medicare Supplement Plans may cover acupuncture. Please call your supplemental carrier to find out and see below for guidance when calling.
We do not accept Medi-Cal at this time.
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.
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.)
