 Health Insurance for Acupuncture, Let us Check for You!

  •  Does My Insurance Cover Acupuncture? Gellman Acupuncture Can Confirm If You Have Acupuncture Benefits Gellman Acupuncture's billing department can quickly confirm your level of acupuncture benefits through your health insurance policy. Call Robin today to start the quick process of checking if your insurance covers acupuncture:  202-669-2680.   Gellman Acupuncture is a preferred provider with BlueCross BlueSheild (BCBS). If you have a BCBS Federal Policy, typically the Fed BCBS policy allows for 10-24 acupuncture treatments a year.

 

  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield & Federal BCBS Patients - We are an in-network provider with Blue Cross/Blue Shield (BCBS) policies. Many BCBS policies cover acupuncture, but not all.  If you do have coverage, you will be responsible only for your co-pay at the time of the treatment. If you have a BCBS Federal Policy, typically the Fed BCBS policy allows for 10-24 acupuncture treatments a year. Let us check your policy so you know if you are eligible for acupuncture treatments before you get started.

 

  • Other Insurance Policies - Many health insurances cover acupuncture so let us check for you before you get started.  If you have acupuncture benefits with a plan that is not in the BCBS family, full payment is due at the time of treatment and we will submit the claims forms to your health insurance provider so that you may be reimbursed if your insurance policy allows for out-of-network acupuncture treatments. Many patients have this arrangement.

 

  • Health insurance will not cover facial rejuvenation treatments. 

 

  • Flex Spending Account (FSAs) or Health Savings Accounts

For those of you that have FSAs or HSAs, Acupuncture is an expense that can count towards your FSA or HSA. Use your FSA credit card to pay for your treatment.

  • Deductibles Acupuncture, if you have acupuncture benefits, can go towards your annual deductible. So consider acupuncture when meeting your deductible!

 

  • Payment 

We accept cash, credit cards or checks. Payment is due at the time of the treatment. Thank you!
