We accept various insurance plans. If you are unsure if your insurance plan includes acupuncture benefits, we are happy to call your insurance provider and verify your benefits on your behalf. If you have coverage, we can bill claims. Some insurances that will cover acupuncture (depending on the policy) include Harvard Pilgrim, United, Cigna, Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Anthem, Allways, Commonwealth Care Alliance, Veterans Affairs, Tufts Health Plan, Tufts Medicare Preferred, BMC, Fallon Wellforce, MassHealth and more.
