Insurance

I treat many patients who have insurance with Acupuncture coverage. There are two ways to go about billing correctly. One is called In-Network, the other is called Out-of-Network. I also accept Personal Injury Protection (PIP) claims from car accidents. I am a preferred provider for the following insurance networks:

  • Aetna

  • American Specialty Health (ASH)

  • Cigna

  • GreatWest

  • Healthways WholeHealth Network

  • HealthNet of Oregon

  • LifeWise Health Plan of Oregon

  • ODS

  • Pacific Source

  • Pacific Care

  • Providence/Providence Preferred

  • Regence BlueCross/BlueShield of Oregon

  • United Health Allies

  • United HealthCare


Evolution Healthcare & Fitness will submit the claim to your insurance company. Co-pays are due at the time of service.

If you have a plan that covers “out of network” practitioners, Evolution will provide a receipt (called a Superbill) that you can fax/mail to your insurance company for reimbursement. Here are the questions we ask your insurance company before coming in and you can too:

  • Ask if your plan includes treatment with acupuncture.

  • Ask if you need a referral.

  • Find out what your co-pay is.

  • Find out what your deductible is and whether it has been met.

  • Find out what your yearly acupuncture allowance is or how many visits per calendar year you are allowed.

Most acupuncture allowances range from $500 – $1,500 per year or 10 – 24 visits per year.
