Does your insurance company only cover acupuncture “in lieu of anesthesia”? If so, let us know so we can send you a letter from the Maryland Acupuncture Society. The purpose of the letter is to give it to your HR dept so that they understand what really is included in the “acupuncture benefit” that they provide. According to MAS, most HR dept’s don’t know about this caveat and they think you are receiving acupuncture for pain. When your company is shopping for insurance plans, they may see acupuncture listed but do not see that it’s only “in lieu of anesthesia”. This may seem like a shot in the dark by giving HR this letter but it does help!
Congratulations to the British Royal Family on the birth of their new son! Princess Kate has had terrible nausea and vomiting throughout her 3 pregnancies. Not many people know that acupuncture is a fantastic modality to control hyperemesis. In fact, some health insurances that do not cover acupuncture, will consider paying for hyperemesis treatments because of it being so effective. If you or someone you know suffers from this during pregnancy, give us a call!
Only 39 days until Spring!!!! Have you scheduled your seasonal tune up yet? Remember to schedule within a week of the equinox (either a week before the 22nd or a week after).
A patient says: “I’m a 54 year old man and a career firefighter for 28 years. I have a very irregular sleep pattern, as well as being very sleep deprived due to my career. I have been getting Mr.Bill’s seasonal acupuncture “tune ups” regularly for 15 years. I can honestly say, it’s the BEST measure I do to prevent illness. I rarely get sick and the few times I have, it’s been very mild. I would highly recommend it to anyone! If you try it, stay consistent with your “tune ups” and you will see a difference in your body’s ability to defend against illness. Thank you Mr. Bill!”- Dave M.
