Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield Insurance Coverage for Acupuncture

Many Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance plans cover acupuncture

Acupuncture is an increasingly common benefit offered by insurance plans. Acupuncture is safe, cost-effective and has great outcomes, which translates into happy, healthy patients. As acupuncture is becoming more mainstream in the U.S., insurance plans are covering acupuncture more often.

Acupuncture is known for its successful treatment of pain and musculo-skeletal disorders, like back pain, knee pain, arthritis, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, and many other types of pain. Acupuncture is also beneficial for skin conditions (acne, eczema and psoriasis), men’s health (premature ejaculation, prostatitis, BPH and erectile dysfunction), and women’s health (menstrual irregularities, endometriosis, PCOS). We also use acupuncture to treat infertility in men and women to increase their fertility and/or support IVF/IUI procedures. Research strongly supports the use of acupuncture during IVF/ICSI and IUI.

Dylan Stein Acupuncture takes Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance plans

Dylan Stein Acupuncture is a in-network licensed acupuncturist with Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield. This means that people with Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance plans that cover acupuncture can have acupuncture and pay only a specialist visit copay or co-insurance, depending on their plan’s requirements. Some people pay absolutely nothing out-of-pocket. In many cases, this means people pay less than $40 out of pocket for acupuncture treatments when they have insurance coverage.

If your insurance covers acupuncture, your insurance plan details will determine what you owe at the time of your visit. This will depend on your deductible, coinsurance, and copay determined by the insurer. You can use a healthcare savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA) to cover costs associated with acupuncture.
