Many insurance companies do cover acupuncture and related services but please be informed that insurance policies vary greatly in terms of deductibles, co-pays, and percentage of coverage. Currently Dr. Fialk is an in-network provider with Cigna (PPO & HMO plans) CorVel, Coventry, HealthSmart (ACCEL, PPO, HPO, workers comp), First Health, Multiplan PPO, and Medi-Cal/Partnership health plan of California.
If you have a health insurance, Dr. Fialk is happy to assist you in verifying your acupuncture benefits prior to your first appointment.
To begin the insurance verification process, please email a photo or scanned copy of the front and back of your insurance card, along with your date of birth.
We will contact you with the information detailing your insurance benefits within 1-2 business days. All your personal information is kept confidential and only used to communicate with your insurance company.
In some situations, it will not be possible for us to bill your insurance directly, however our office can provide you with a medical "Superbill" that you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. In such cases, payment in full will be due at each office visit.
Discounted time-of-service rates are available for those who are uninsured or under-insured. We accept cash, checks, credit cards (Visa and Mastercard), Health Savings Account cards (HSA) and Flexible Spending Accounts cards (FSA). Please make checks payable to Wellspring Natural Medicine.
Dr. Fialk is proudly contracted with medi-cal/partnership healthplan of California which covers acupuncture services for certain conditions. In most cases, a referral ("RAF") will have to be made by your primary care provider. Dr. Fialk is also able to prescribe certain medications, order standard lab work, and refer to participating specialists if needed.
Currently, medicare does not contract naturopathic doctors or acupuncturists to bill directly.
Please contact the office of Wellspring Natural Medicine for more information.
