Insurance Coverage

 

Our team of providers are in network with Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Aetna, United and MVP. We also accept Veteran’s Health Plans, Worker’s Compensation and more. Not all insurance plans include acupuncture, so check your plan by calling the phone number on your insurance card or find out more information here about verifying your coverage. Naturopathic medicine is usually a covered service in Vermont, including VT Medicaid. VT Medicaid will not cover acupuncture. Medicare currently does not allow Licensed Acupuncturists to bill for services. We will bill as out of network providers for your insurance plan if it includes our services.

Co-Pay – Some insurance plans cover the full cost of a acupuncture treatments, and the patient pays a set amount, called a copay, each visit. Amounts vary by plan, but commonly range from $25-$40 per visit.

Co-Insurance – When an insurance company pays for a percentage of the treatments performed, the patient is responsible to the co-insurance, or remainder of the costs. While these amounts vary, co-insurance commonly covers 70%-80% of costs.
