FAQ

General

What insurance do you accept?

We accept Aetna, Cigna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Medicare.

Chiropractic

What can I expect on my first chiropractic visit?

A Chiropractic visit will include a detailed history and examination, a diagnosis and therapy recommendation. Your consent is always required before a Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation. Not all visits to a Chiropractor include a manipulation; there are other methods of providing pain relief and restoring joint function such as traction, extension therapy, and activator treatments.

Does my insurance cover Chiropractic?

Dr. Bahia Al-Salihi is an Aetna, BlueCross/BlueShield PPO and Cigna In-Network Provider. She also offers coverage for Medicare. Her services are out of network for all other insurance companies. Please call your insurance company to find out what your deductible is, and once that is met, find out what percentage of the chiropractic treatment will be covered.

Acupuncture

How soon should I visit?

You should consider starting at the very least 6 months out from your projected conception date. On your first visit to consult with an acupuncture practitioner for fertility, ideally both the future mother and father should be present.

Should I get acupuncture even if I am going through IVF?

Yes. Your chances of successful implantation and full-term pregnancy will improve significantly with acupuncture and herbal medicine.

What does acupuncture feel like?

There is a sensation associated with the insertion of the needle that is unique to acupuncture; it is not painful, it creates a heaviness or warmth that indicates that the flow of Qi has been accessed. After anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes the needles are removed.

Does my insurance cover acupuncture?

Please call and ask specifically whether acupuncture is covered by your insurance policy.
