Acupuncture for Veterans
If you are a United States Veteran, acupuncture at our clinic may be approved through your Veteran’s Affair physician. We take part in Veteran’s Choice Program (PC3) and are in-network providers with TriCare/TriWest Alliance, the medical group offering off-site medical care for veterans. The V.A. covers all of the cost, but visits must be approved in advance. Please contact us below for details or if you want assistance in getting treatments approved. Licensed acupuncturist Sean Michael Hall comes from a family of veterans, specializes in treating pain and orthopedic issues, and is proud to serve our vets.
Workers’ Compensation insurance usually covers 100% of necessary medical treatment for injuries resulting from work-related injuries. Often, up to 24 visits may be approved, usually six sessions at a time. If you have an open Workers’ Compensation claim acupuncture treatments are usually approved. We are happy to contact the physician or the adjuster managing your case if you would like assistance getting acupuncture approved.
Personal Injury Cases
We accept Personal Injury cases. If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident and have an open claim you can have your acupuncture visits here paid in full. If your plan includes Med Pay, they will pay 100% of all necessary medical care for injuries sustained, regardless of fault. We bill the insurance company directly, so you don’t have to pay out-of-pocket or spend time on the phone working with the insurance company.
