Insurance coverage for other services
Acupuncture benefits are available with some insurance plans; call your insurance if you think this may be the case. Otherwise, acupuncture is not a covered service. Other services such as nutrient infusions or chelation are not covered. Nutritional and herbal products are generally not covered under pharmacy benefits, though certain Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) or Health Savings Accounts (HSA) may allow supplement purchases from a doctor’s office. Please check with your FSA or HSA account for their specific terms.
Blood labs and specialty kits are not billed through TRC.
