Preparating for the Appointment
Before your first appointment, ask about payments and figure out if your insurance covers the procedures. Medicare and Medicaid do not often cover acupuncture, but your have supplemental insurance policy might. A reputable center will likely work with you to determine the best option for you from a financial perspective.
Once you are at your first appointment, ask the provider how many sessions (s)he thinks it might take before you can expect results. You or your caregiver should also ask about how you will feel afterwards and if there are any necessary precautions to follow after the procedures are complete.
