FEES

All fees are paid at the time of the visit.  Cash or check are accepted.  Checks are payable to "Jeffrey Wernick". If you have Health Insurance or Flexible Spending Plan, the office will be happy to assist you in obtaining reimbursement. Many insurance policies do cover acupuncture but this office makes no representation that yours does. As your insurance is a contract between you and the insurance company, this office is not responsible for your coverage or benefits. 

 

 

INSURANCE ASSIGNMENT

Where appropriate, this office can arrange to accept payment directly from your insurance company. You must provide all insurance information to this office and your coverage must be confirmed. At the time of each service, you must pay any fees, deductibles, and co-payments not covered by your insurance.

Any assigned payments mistakenly sent to you or remaining balances not paid by the insurance must be paid to this office within 30 days. Past due balances may have an interest charge of 1.5% applied per month.

Please contact your Insurance company to verify coverage for Acupuncture. Print out the form below.  Ask the following questions and fill in the information as completely as possible. Send this form back in to the office or bring it with you on your first appointment.
