Number of Sessions: The number and type of sessions you may need varies greatly from patient to patient and is directly based upon the issue(s) that you and Dr. Shah will be addressing together. This information will become much more apparent during the first intake session and as your healing plan unfolds.
Insurance: At the time of your visit, full payment is expected. Dr. Shah has chosen to offer her clinical services as an "out-of-network" provider so that she can spend maximum time working directly with you and is able to blend medical acupuncture and other integrative services into your visit without any barriers.
Dr. Shah will provide you with a "superbill" (coding information) and any other necessary paperwork to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement directly from them. Most patients who have satisfied their deductible are reimbursed, or can apply the amount to their deductible. Many patients get as much as 80% of their visits reimbursed.
You may also use FSA/HSA credit cards for your visits. Labs and radiology studies ordered by Dr. Shah are most often covered by insurance as well. Dr. Shah's office cannot file insurance paperwork on your behalf at this time.
