We will verify and explain your benefits before treatment, at no charge. Please note that our online booking system requires a 25-dollar deposit for any initial visit booked online. As of 08/19/2023, we are adjusting our 25-dollar deposit policy to fall in line with current insurance regulations. If you do have acupuncture coverage in your policy, you have the option to call our office and schedule your appointment to bypass the 25-dollar deposit for online booking. If you choose to book online, your 25-dollar deposit can be utilized towards your first co-payment, co-insurance, or towards your balanced owed if you do not have coverage. Lastly, if you have to cancel your appointment, we require a 24-hour notice in order for the deposit to be refunded back to you.
For insurance coverage verification please call our office at (224) 307-4325 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
