Most insurance accepted, please see the “Providers” tab for specific information. Patients are ultimately responsible for knowing their insurance coverage for Acupuncture and for any balances not covered by insurance.

Kaiser self-referred, CHP, Aetna and Cigna patients please take note:

A “non covered services fee” of $20 up to $50 is applied in addition to any copay or coinsurance per visit, per a pre-disclosed agreement with patients. For Kaiser, the fee may be as low as $20, based on the plan, and up to $50 for CHP’s self referral program. For Aetna and Cigna this fee is typically $40- $50. These insurers limit reminbursement for acupuncture to two 15-minute units of acupuncture. The type of holistic care Wellness At The Center offers does not allow for treatments of this duration, typically running 60-75 minutes with 3-4 units of acupuncture, and additional modalities as needed. Thank you for your understanding.
