Please remember that you have the primary relationship with your insurance company and you are responsible for the total amount owed at the time of your visit.

Before your first visit contact your insurance company or refer to your insurance contract agreement regarding coverage for Alternative and Complementary medical services. Items to note are: 1) the service is covered, 2) for which diagnosis is covered, 3) how many visits are allowed per calendar year, 4) the amount of your deductible, 5) are there any limitations. Answers to these questions will help clarify treatment and financial responsibility.
