I treat auto accident and HMO patients only working in a multi-specialty large clinic and see an average of 80-90 patients/week. My referrals from the MDs in our clinic are increasing every week due to the growing interest in acupuncture/herbal med in the elderly population.
Oregon has good AP insurance coverage and there are many insurance suppliers available here.
Less than half of patients cant get any reembursment for acupuncture mostly due to medicare guidelines. Patient with coverage are more likely to continue care after initial symptoms are resolved.
