Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is it possible for my acupuncture appointment to be covered by insurance?

A: Yesgetting your acupuncture appointment covered by insurance is entirely possible. Acupuncture visits are covered by many insurance plans. If you’re unsure if your plan covers acupuncture visits, use our free Insurance Verification service to check if your plan offers coverage. Yin Yang Acupuncture Channel accepts Medicare Advantage plans.

Q: I have a fear of needles. Would acupuncture still be an appropriate option for me?

A: Absolutely—the tools used in acupuncture are incredibly thin compared to other needles. A typical filiform needle used in acupuncture is only about a quarter of the size of a traditional sewing needle and less than one-tenth the size of a medical syringe. For those new to the practice, I demonstrate on myself to show just how painless it actually is.
