Information About Insurance and Rates
Caring for Maryland and DC with Acupuncture and Natural Medicine

General Information

Today, many insurance companies cover acupuncture. Your benefits will depend on your policy details. If you would like us to determine the benefits available on your plan, please enter your information here or create an online account.

Before we can accept your insurance for payment, our office may need to speak with your insurance company directly. In most cases, we can handle these insurance details for a new customer within 24 business hours.

Our rates for services are determined by the professional time, training, and resources that go into providing your care. Our rates for initial appointments range from $95-215. For follow up sessions, rates range from $85-125.

New patient appointments range from 60 to 105 minutes (see extended sessions below). For follow-up sessions, the overall appointment time is usually between 50 and 60 minutes.

We request 48 hours notice for schedule changes. For schedule changes with less than 48 hours notice, we may charge $35 or we may occasionally waive this fee as a courtesy.

Extended Sessions

New patients who prefer to have an introductory session longer than 60 minutes are encouraged to call in advance to let us know, so that we can reserve the additional time. In many cases, an extended introductory session can help us to achieve clinical results more quickly for you.

For patients who are new to acupuncture, this option allows more time to ask questions and speak with the practitioner before beginning treatment. This can allow us to have a full-length (30-45 minute) consultation as well as a full-length treatment at the same visit. Extended sessions are also helpful for establishing a more in-depth understanding of our treatment goals for your care.

The fee for extended sessions varies according to the length of the session and the level of care we have provided. We are happy to answer any questions about the optimal time to reserve for your first appointment with us. Due to the wide variety of medical concerns that exist, we can only make recommendations on a case by case basis.

Insurance Coverage

Many patients with insurance coverage for acupuncture will pay a copay at the time of service. If a deductible is required on your plan and has not been paid, you may be responsible for the visit fee at the time of service. Patients with questions about their insurance deductible are encouraged to call their insurance company for this information about their plan.

Rarely, an insurance company may decline to pay for a patient's care even though coverage was expected by the patient and the provider. If this happens, our office may be able to submit an appeal to correct the situation. However, in some cases, patients may be responsible for charges not covered by insurance.
