Holistic Heart Acupuncture becomes UnitedHealthcare provider
By Marieke A. Pieterman
Holistic Heart Acupuncture is now proudly accepting insurance while serving our local community.
The clinic has just completed the credentialing process with a major healthcare insurance provider and is now a registered and participating health care provider with UnitedHealthcare (UHC), through Optum Health.
As part of the process, the clinic had to meet United Healthcare and Optum Health certification and license requirements and accept United Healthcare and Optum Health terms of participation.
Unfortunately, not all United Healthcare plans are created equal, so please be sure to research whether or not your specific United Healthcare plan offers coverage for acupuncture.
If your United Healthcare plan does indeed cover acupuncture, Holistic Heart Acupuncture will bill United Healthcare directly and you will only be responsible for paying your copay, if applicable with your current UHC plan. This copay will be paid directly to Holistic Heart Acupuncture.
As a reminder, acupuncture is also covered by most Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs). I accept HSA, HRA and FSA debit cards for payment.
We look forward to working with our potential UnitedHealthcare plan clients in our surrounding community where we will give them the opportunity to experience a whole new level of wellness, receiving the gift of acupuncture and Oriental medicine. We are so excited!
