"If you can find an integrative or functional medical doctor and can afford to pay for visits out of pocket, you will get much higher quality health care. If you can find one who takes insurance, you’ve found a UNICORN. These doctors are more interested in preventative care than most conventional medicine doctors.   – Candace Elliot, "The High Cost of Poor Healthcare"

Do The Math – Acupuncture Just Makes Sense!

Grid of how much the average Dr.'s appointment costs.

Welcome to the Unicorn of Healthcare!

Mend is In Network with many PPO Insurance Plans as well as many HMO's. Mend does not accept Medicare or Medicaid and is no longer In Network with any ASH Policies (Kaiser Permanente and Anthem Blue Cross ). We will be in network with Oscar plans very soon - so stay tuned!

Even though Mend is In-Network with many Premium PPO's some insurances do not cover ALL of your visit. There may be additional charges for modalities not covered under some plans (basic intake, exams, consultations, herbs, estim, tui-na, cupping....). The additional charges range from $30 - $60 and are due at the time of service. We will let you know before your appointment if this is the case with your policy.

Please send us a photo of the front and back of your insurance card along with the Insurance Verification Form BEFORE your appointment so we can give you a Complimentary Insurance Verification and check your specific coverage.

We know insurance is frustrating and we promise to work with your Insurance Providor to the best of our abilities. However, if your Providor returns our submitted claims more than twice then you are responsible for treatment costs.
