Few health insurance companies in Georgia currently cover acupuncture and herbal therapies. However, some companies do offer varying levels of coverage. Medicaid & Medicare do not provide coverage. As more and more insurance companies begin to understand the therapeutic benefits & long term cost savings of acupuncture & Chinese herbal medicine, insurance coverage will be expanded. It is always best to check with your health insurance companybefore scheduling an appointmentin order to determine whether or not you have eligibility and coverage for our services.
If your insurance company will reimburse you for part or all of your treatment, Medical Acupuncture & Nutrition, Inc. will provide the necessary legal documentation (i.e. Superbill, CPT codes, treatment documentation, etc.) in order for you to obtain reimbursement from your health insurance company. We will always do our best to help you with this process.
Flex Plans & Healthcare Savings Accounts
Acupuncture is a covered medical expense under most Flex Plans, and it is a covered expense for Healthcare Savings Accounts (HSAs). Additionally, some plans may reimburse you for the cost of Chinese herbal medicine. Please check with your Flex Plan or HSA administrator to make sure that your particular plan covers acupuncture treatments and/or the cost of Chinese herbal medicine.
Our healing philosophy is a synthesis of both Eastern and Western medical theory, of traditional and non-traditional perspectives. We emphasize natural healing, as drawn from Daoist and Buddhist traditions. These traditions seek to resolve the opposing Yin and Yang forces within the body, whose imbalance leads to poor health and disease. In this view, external and internal causes of disease are acknowledged. External factors consist of dietary, lifestyle, climatic, and environmental conditions, including the biochemical pathogens of Western medicine. Internal factors are genetic, physiological, psychological, emotional and spiritual conditions. We address internal and external causes of disease, and seek to restore the balance of the individual's body with the larger universe. We believe that health is a continuous goal in every person's life. It shouldn't be ignored until the body grows sick and then submitted to doctoring. We emphasize preventative medicine before the manifestation of any illness. However, when illness does appear, we offer a powerful arsenal of treatment options aimed at eliminating the symptoms, but more crucially, at ridding the body of the root of disease, in which treatment is administered by the doctor, as well as by the patients themselves. Medical Acupuncture & Nutrition Inc. provides acupuncture, massage & tui-na therapy, Tai Chi, & yoga classes, individualized herbal prescriptions and nutritional consultations (diabetic and renal disease education) for our patients. We serve the following areas with acupuncture: Atlanta, Buckhead, Decatur, Dunwoody, Virginia Highlands, Stone Mountain, Lithonia, Norcross, Sandy Springs, John's Creek, Alpharetta, Roswell.

What to Expect at your first Appointment
Your appointment starts with an inquiry about your health history, specific ailments and lifestyle habits. You may be asked questions about your energy level, sleep, emotions, sensations of heat and coolness, quality and location of pain, eating habits, elimination, headaches, dizziness, or (for women) gynecological concerns. Your condition is assessed through traditional pulse diagnosis, tongue examination and palpation of acupuncture points.
Through these methods of assessment, a diagnosis is made and a course of treatment is determined. In addition to your appointment times, individual attention is given to research your case for the most effective treatment for your particular condition.
Recommended treatments may include an assortment of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, dietary recommendations, lifestyle counseling and stretching and breathing exercises. Aditionally, self acupressure massage may be prescribed for continued home conditioning.
