What about insurance coverage for other services?
Services such as acupuncture, therapeutic massage, Healing Touch, and nutrient infusions, as well as others, are usually not covered by insurers. Upon request, WholeHealth Chicago will provide receipts for patients to self-submit for reimbursement. In addition, nutritional and herbal products are generally not covered under pharmacy benefits.
Will you bill my insurance for me?
As a service to you, we submit claims to your insurance company. However, you are responsible for any portion of the claim not reimbursed by your insurance.
Will my HSA or FSA pay for non-covered services?
Health Savings Accounts and Flexible Spending Accounts often pay for healthcare services and products that your health insurance will not cover. Because of this, we encourage patients to enroll in HSA’s when they are offered by your employer. We will provide documentation of medical necessity to facilitate reimbursement. Check with your program administrator or our office for more information.
