Financial Assistance Policy
Purpose: To provide affordable acupuncture to individuals who are under-insured or uninsured, furthering our mission of providing acupuncture to all who need it.
Policy: If you are uninsured or under-insured, you are eligible for our sliding scale price structure of $22-$52, with a $10 new patient fee. Uninsured means having no health insurance and under-insured means that either no coverage for acupuncture exists in your policy or verification estimates your patient responsibility to be outside of your means.
In order to determine how much to pay on the sliding scale, we ask you to review the following income guidelines and pay accordingly. If your practitioner recommends more frequent treatments than you can afford, please talk to your practitioner to set up an alternative payment plan. We understand everyone’s situation is different, and our primary goal is to make acupuncture available to you as often as you need it in order to see results.
Please note once your insurance policy is billed we are legally obligated to collect the amount determined as the “patient responsibility” on the Explanation of Benefits provided to us by the insurer.
