Fees, Forms, and Tips for New Patients

Thank you for your interest in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. You’ll find many answers to your questions on this website including how to make an appointment.

We’re taking extra precautions to keep our patients and community safe and healthy in the wake of the pandemic. This includes disinfecting equipment, treatment tables, chairs, desks, doorknobs, and contact surfaces before and after patient treatments. Hand sanitizers and disinfectant stations will be available throughout the clinic. Please don’t make an appointment if you have any signs or symptoms of a respiratory infection, cough, cold, flu, shortness of breath, or fever (and email me if you would like guidance about any respiratory problems or Covid symptoms).

Fees

An exam & consultation costs $85, and an acupuncture treatment costs $90. So your first visit would be $175. But for a limited time only you can get a free exam and consultation if you follow the below instructions and book an appointment online.

Get Well & Do Right!

Each year I donate over 10% of my Clinic profits to charities that benefit veterans injured in combat our country.  I’m a provider for the Veterans Community Care Program.

Health Insurance

I’m in-network and accept Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Care First, Federal BCBS, Cigna and United Health Care. I also accept insurance from other companies as long as your policy covers acupuncture. Does having insurance coverage affect your decision to get acupuncture ?  If so, please don’t make an appointment until you call your company and ask the following:

(1) Does the policy have an acupuncture benefit? If yes, is there a deductible?
(2) Has the deductible been met? If not, how much remains to be paid? Is there a yearly maximum on acupuncture coverage?

It’s much faster if you call yourself, but our biller can check your coverage if you don’t mind waiting at least a week. Please click this link to fill out the insurance verification form.

How to make an appointment – 3 easy steps

Step 1.  Click this link, enter your name and email, and then click continue.  

Step 2. Look for an email “New Patient Intake & Consent Forms” from Intakeq.com.  If it’s not in your inbox you either didn’t enter your correct email or it could be in your Spam folder.  The email will have a password and link to access six online forms: a Health History Intake Questionnaire, a Consent Form, a Recommendation for Diagnostic Examination, a Fees & Payments Policy, an Insurance Billing Form, and a Covid Informed Consent Form. Booking and filling out the forms online is safe and secure. We are a HIPAA compliant office and do not maintain or accept paper files. Go over each question carefully and fill in every question even if you don’t think they relate to your health concerns. Once you click submit you’ll get an email thanking you. If you don’t it means you left something out, forgot to e-sign one or more forms, or didn’t click the submit button.  Allow at least 10 to 15 minutes to fill out all the forms. Please use a computer, not a cell phone if possible. 

Step 3.  Select the option for New Patient Appointment or Initial Consultation only, and pick a date and time on the online calendar that you’ll be able to access once you’ve completed step 2. 

Please don’t hesitate to email or text me if you have questions. I promise to respond quickly. Sorry I don’t have a receptionist so will not be able to take or return calls when I’m with patients. Thanks and look forward to seeing you soon!
