More and more insurance companies are covering acupuncture. Check with your insurance provider to find out if your policy covers acupuncture, and how many visits you are allotted per year. Payment for your treatment is due at the time of your visit. You will be provided with a Superbill for each visit (a Superbill is an invoice for your visit that uses standardized codes for all of the treatments performed). The Superbill can then be submitted to your insurance provider for full or partial reimbursement of the cost of your visit, depending on your policy.
