While more insurance companies are reimbursing for acupuncture therapies every day, many still do not, or have exclusions that restrict reimbursement to physicians (M.D.'s) or for certain conditions (eg. pain only).

MEDCOST®, Wake Forest Baptist Health's primary insurer, reimburses for acupuncture, including services by licensed acupuncturists (not just MDs).  The "High" plan covers up to 90% of costs up to $1000 per calendar year of services (after deductible), while the "Low" plan covers up to 70% of costs up to $1000 per calendar year of services. 

Other insurance carriers that cover acupuncture (depending upon your plan) include Aetna®, United Health Care®, and Blue Cross Blue Shield®, although BCBS of North Carolina® does not reimburse for acupuncture provided by a Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.).  We suggest you call your insurance company to ask about specific coverage of L.Ac. administered acupuncture.
  Health Savings or Flexible Medical Spending Accounts nearly always reimburse for acupuncture. 

WE DO NOT FILE INSURANCE, however, if you have insurance coverage and so request, we will provide you with the appropriate billing reimbursement information (ICD-9 and CPT Coding) adequate for you to self-file for your own reimbursement.


Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice or missed appointments will be charged a $50.00 Missed Appointment Fee.  Cancellations via phone or email must be made between 8:00am and 6:00pm at least 24 hours prior to the appointment.  Cancellations for Monday need to be received by the previous Friday 6:00pm.   Arrivals later than 10 minutes will constitute a missed appointment.  Exceptions will certainly be made in cases due to inclement weather or emergencies.
