Insurance Coverage

Insurance Coverage 101

for Acupuncture

Acupuncture insurance coverage is a common question. Many insurance plans offer coverage for acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture may also be covered if you sustained a workplace injury or were injured in a motor vehicle accident.

Tang Acupuncture is an in-network provider with Aetna, BCBS and United Healthcare.

Tang Acupuncture is also a participating provider for Veterans Community Care program sponsored by Veterans Affair Department. A referral is needed from a VA Medical Doctor to receive acupuncture therapy. If you’re a Veteran or you know a Veteran who is in need of an alternative therapy, contact the VA to discuss the health concerns and request a referral for acupuncture.

For other traditional health plans, Tang Acupuncture is qualified to provide acupuncture treatment as outof-network provider. Another type of healthcare program – Healthshare program or Health Care Sharing Ministries (HCSMs) is more likely to offer acupuncture to their members. Tang Acupuncture is now a listing provider of Liberty Healthshare.

Acupuncture is an eligible expense with a flexible spending account (FSA), health savings account (HSA) or health reimbursement arrangement (HRA). Acupuncture is not eligible for reimbursement with a limited care flexible spending account (LCFSA) or a dependent care flexible spending account (DCFSA).
