You may schedule an appointment by using the online scheduler below. Please see clinical practice tabfor a full description of each of the services provided. PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to use health insurance benefits to receive treatment, or if you are a minor wanting to schedule an appointment, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org call/text 503-701-3042 to book directly with me. Because of the special nature of these appointments, bookings need to be completed in person.
I am able to check insurance benefits; this is done prior to the initial visit for new patients. Not all insurance plans provide acupuncture benefits, so is important for patients to understand what services are covered under their individual plans. Membership materials are the best place to find coverage details.
COVID 19 Policies: Patientswill be asked to respond to a Covid pre-screening questionnaire the day prior to appointments. Recent exposures may prevent some patients from being seen.
Forms of Payment
Cash or checks are the preferred forms of payment. Payment, including co-pays, is due at time of service. If a patient wishes to use a credit or debit card, I add a convenience fee for the cost of using a payment terminal.
I like to confirm insurance benefits prior to a patient's first appointment, though it's helpful for patients to understand what type of coverage their plan offers and whether I am a provider in network. Rates of reimbursement are variable, as each insurance company pays different rates for acupuncture benefits. Health insurance plans I am paneled with and can bill in network are ASH, Health Net, MODA, Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield, Providence Health Plans, United Health Care and Triwest. Please contact me directly to discuss your acupuncture benefits. For patients with co-insurance, I collect a standard fee of $20 at time of service until co-insurance amount is verified. Any overpayment is returned to the patient.
I also work with insurance companies onMotor Vehicle Accident (MVA) and Personal Injury/Worker's Comp (PIP/WC) cases. Patients do not need a referral to see me for MVA-related treatment. There are rules around seeking treatment under a Worker's Comp claim, these need to be discussed with your employer or the WC insurance carrier. Patients need to present a claim authorization number from the insurance carrier prior to the first appointment.
