If you want to put through insurance, we do not confirm benefits. We are in-network with Aetna, Anthem, Cigna and ConnectiCare only here in Connecticut for naturopathy. We do not submit to out-of-network insurers. Naturopathy will fall into the specialist category as they are not allowed to be primary care doctors as mandated by the state. When you call your carrier to see what kind of coverage you have for naturopathy, the CPT codes are: 99204, 99205, 99214, 99215 and 99417. If you do have coverage, be sure to ask about copays, coinsurance and deductibles.

If you want to put through insurance, we do not confirm benefits. We are in-network with Aetna, Anthem and Cigna only here in Connecticut, NOT CONNECTICARE. We do not submit to out-of-network insurers. Many of these insurance providers do not provide acupuncture coverage as part of their standard coverage. However, company/individual policies may have additions or riders on their own policies to specifically include some type of acupuncture treatment.

You can call your provider to see if the following codes for procedure codes for acupuncture are covered - 97810 & 97811.

If you do have acupuncture benefits you then want to follow up with "is coverage diagnosis dependent?" Meaning they only cover specific diagnoses, so you will need to explain the reason for your visit. You will also want to inquire if there is a limit per year. Also, we strongly recommend getting a reference number for that call, so if your claim is denied, you will have it to challenge any denial.
