INSURANCE PLANS

Acupuncture can be used for your Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flex Spending Accounts. In general, you can spend tax-free from your Health Savings Account on all medical, prescription drugs, dental (including braces for your children) and vision expenses, chiropractic visits, and even acupuncture. To be a qualified medical expense, the expense has to be primarily for the prevention or alleviation of a physical or mental defect or illness.

~Aetna
~APWU
~Cigna
~United Health Care
