Billing Insurance

As a benefit to you, we’re happy to offer insurance billing. Practitioner availability varies – we keep a current list below.

We accept and bill in house all motor vehicle (MVA) and personal injury (PIP) cases, as well as the primary health insurance plans listed below. If we are not on the preferred provider list for your insurance we are also happy to have you pay cash at time of service for your appointment and provide you with a superbill you may submit on your own to your insurance company.

We can also bill your insurance as out-of-network / non-preferred providers if your insurance allows this. Usually, this will mean a larger copay or coinsurance for you.

Insurance billing is complex! If you elect to use medical insurance for your treatment, we will provide you with more information to ensure you understand the process and are ready for what comes. If you ever have questions about your benefits or insurance billing, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Note: In Oregon, acupuncturists do NOT need a prescription in order to bill your insurance, except in the case of Triwest / Trivity / VA claims. Massage therapy appointments may need a prescription, depending on the situation – contact us for more details.
