Insurance

Acupuncture is a covered benefit in many health insurance plans.  I am an in-network provider for the following, and can bill these payers directly:

  • BCBS
  • Medica
  • Preferred One (Magellan)
  • Several United Healthcare and Aetna products
  • Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP)
  • Health Partners

I also accept Worker's Compensation cases, and Private Injury (automobile) insurance cases.  For other insurances, I can bill these payers directly if you have out of network benefits. 

If you would like to use your insurance, please provide me with the following information 48 hours prior to your first appointment.  This information can be entered directly into our secure patient portal using this link, ('Forms' tab, click to edit insurance information) or you can call our office 218-670-0599. 

  • name
  • date of birth
  • phone number
  • insurance company
  • subscriber/member policy number
  • group ID
  • provider services phone number (usually on the back of the card)
  • condition/s for which you are seeking treatment

For No Fault/Automobile Injury or Workers Compensation cases, I will also need the name and contact information for the claims adjuster or case manager.

Acupuncture is a qualified medical expense for Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) per IRS publication 502.  Patients are responsible for checking on the specific rules of their Flex Spending Account (FSA) or Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) prior to using such cards.

Medicare does not currently recognize acupuncture as a benefit.  If you have a secondary insurance to Medicare, you may have acupuncture benefits.  A supplemental plan to Medicare would not have acupuncture benefits.
