Listed below are some of the plans we are either in network or will be accepting shortly.

These lists are not comprehensive and if you do not see your plan listed, please contact us or visit our online booking site to schedule an appointment  – an insurance verification request will be emailed automatically to you before your visit.

Please note it can take up to 72 hours to verify coverage through your insurance company, and all coverage MUST be verified prior to your first visit to ensure your insurance policy covers acupuncture.


Please note: we are NOT in network with any MediCal plans.

Medicare typically does not cover acupuncture, although in 2021 there are some plans that have a “trial basis” of acupuncture treatment for chronic low back pain. This is typically limited to 12 visits in a specific time frame and must be verified on a case by case basis.
