Yellow Dragon Acupuncture will no longer be accepting Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Texas insurance for those that have policies under the names BlueChoice, BlueChoice Plus, HealthSelect or Indemnity (ParPlan) beginning 1 March 2020; Yellow Dragon will continue to accept United Health Care and Humana. Prior to coming to your appointment, please call your insurance to verify that acupuncture is covered in your plan, please do not assume that if your plan covers Chiropractor that it also includes Acupuncture. Yellow Dragon Acupuncture will not accept insurance from other companies as an out of network provider - it cost you more in the long run and cost me more in having to explain to you that you owe me money for service provided above your co-pay. I will provide those that want to file with their insurance company a super bill that has a detailed cost breakdown upon request.
For those patients insured under the Department of Defense health plan TRICARE, managed by Humana, TRICARE does not cover acupuncture. What you can do is to write your congressional representative and request that acupuncture be included in the National Defense Authorization Act. Without this inclusion in the defense budget, they will not cover your treatment for acupuncture.
