Acupuncture is covered by most FSAs and HSAs. We accept most insurances that cover acupuncture services. Your coverage also depends on the policy agreement that you have with the insurance company. We also accept auto insurance, house insurance and workers’ comp. If your plan covers acupuncture, we’ll file a claim and you’ll only pay the co-payment, after your deductible has been met.
