Insurance: Few health insurance companies in North Carolina currently cover acupuncture and herbal therapies. However, some companies offer varying levels of coverage. Medicaid & Medicare do not provide coverage. As more and more insurance companies begin to understand the therapeutic benefit & long term cost savings of acupuncture, insurance coverage will be expanded. It is always best to check with your health insurance company first in order to see if you have eligibility and coverage for our services. If your insurance company will reimburse you for part or all of your treatment, ABR Acupuncture will provide the necessary legal documentation (i.e. Superbill, copy of your treatment notes, etc.) in order for you to obtain reimbursement from your health insurance company. We will always do our best to serve your needs.
