**Please contact your insurance carrier to verify coverage and benefit-eligibility may vary by member’s policy

If you have insurance please bring your card with you to your visit. We will gladly discuss your proposed treatment and answer any questions relating to your insurance. Your insurance is a contract between you, your employer, and the insurance company. We are not a party to that contract. We must emphasize that as medical care providers, our relationship is with you and not your insurance company.


***Please note that, although the UC SHIP plan is technically a PPO-type plan, students must first obtain a referral authorization from a Student Health Center primary care provider BEFORE seeking Acupuncture treatment. If a referral authorization is not obtained in advance for any outside services other than emergency care or mental health care, then the claim will be denied.
