Mankato Acupuncture Clinic is in network with both Blue Cross Blue Shield and Health Partners.  If you have a different insurance plan that has acupuncture coverage, please let us know so we can give you a coded receipt for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

We always recommend you call your insurance company and double-check your acupuncture coverage. Some specific questions you should ask are:

  • “Do I have acupuncture coverage if given by a Licensed Acupuncturist?”
  • “Do I need a referral from my Primary Care Provider?”
  • “Is there a limit to the number of acupuncture treatments I can receive within one calendar year?”

If you previously received acupuncture from your chiropractor and had coverage, that doesn’t necessarily mean you will have coverage with a Licensed Acupuncturist. Please see your plan documents for your specific coverage information.

Most Blue Cross Blue Shield and Health Partners plans will cover the following. This list is not a guarantee of coverage.
