Some insurance plans cover acupuncture in Georgia. We do not bill insurance directly, however we can provide you with the necessary receipt to submit for reimbursement. Patients can usually pay for treatments through their health insurance flexible spending accounts.
For your first appointment, please allow one hour for a treatment. This ensures we have plenty of time for a thorough initial exam. Follow up treatments are typically 30 to 45 minutes.
