La Vie Acupuncture Clinic is contracted with most major insurance companies.
While we are pleased to be able to provide services to you, it can be extremely difficult for us to keep track of all the individual requirements of all patients insurance plans. As you know, each insurance can have different stipulations. Although we do our very best to help patients with their insurance questions, providing them with quality patient care is our primary concern. Therefore, we do ask that you take responsibility regarding what your insurance may or may not cover before you come in for your appointment. Unfortunately, if you do not inform us of any special requirements regarding your individual plan, it is possible that you could have a needless out-of-pocket expense.
