Free Acupuncture for U.S. Veterans
Acupuncture is one of the complementary and integrative health (CIH) approaches within the VHA Whole Health System of care included in VA Directive 1137 — Provision of Complementary and Integrative Health (recertified December 2022). This allows acupuncture care to be covered by the Veteran’s medical benefits package, when clinically necessary, as determined by the patient’s care team.

HOw to get Verified:
First we need you to visit your V.A. primary care physician and tell them you would like to be verified to receive acupuncture.
Next we have to wait. Our office must receive a call from either Optum or Community Care. This can take a few weeks. The information we need NAME, DOB, and V.A. REFERRAL NUMBER
We receive many of these calls from Optum and Community Care a day, requesting services for many veterans. We ask them to leave us a message with the information we need. We will gather all of the verification messages and call back into Optum and Community Care and schedule several veterans at once.
We will only schedule your first appointment with Optum and Community Care, but it must be scheduled through them and not directly through the veteran. All subsequent appointments can be scheduled directly through the veteran in office, via our online platform, or by giving us a call.
