Fill out the Qi Spot Intake Form ONLINE at our Patient Portal (includes contact information, health history, insurance information, consent to treatment that need to be signed before the appointment). Please fill out the forms to the best of your knowledge. It is crucial for a correct diagnosis at your treatment.

We accept same day appointments if there is availability. Please email or call to see if we have an opening.

Most insurance companies in the US, especially Oregon, Washington and California cover acupuncture, but health plans vary. We can also check your insurance coverage if you are not able to or not sure.
Currently, our Acupuncturist, Wade, is an In-Network provider for many insurance companies including Regence, BlueCross BlueSheild, Kaiser, CHP, MODA Health, United Healthcare, Cigna, Cigna Greatwest Pacific Source, Lifewise, Aetna, HealthNet, Providence Health Plan and more and all auto accident insurance from patients with Auto injuries. Even though out-of-network, he also takes UMR for Legacy Employees.
Please Note: We do not take Regence insurance that requires pre-authorization unless you get approval from our office. Please check to see if you require pre-authorization before you come in for an appointment. If you plan on using your Regence insurance, you need to wait to receive pre-authorization before you come in for a visit, otherwise you will be charged for the full visit at the time of service.
If you were in an Auto accident within the last year (Oregon Residents) or 2 years (Washington State Residents) and have filed a claim for your accident, and you are experiencing any sort of pain, your Acupuncture treatments are covered 100% as long as your benefits are not maxed out, or you have been authorized by your lawyer to continue treatment.
You do not need a referral from your doctor and you do not need to pay anything out-of-pocket. Just fill in the Auto Accident insurance information with the claim number in your Health History Form and we will verify everything for you.
Self Paying Patients
If you do not have medical insurance that may cover your acupuncture treatments, we will be able to help you through our discounted rates for patients who prepay or pay on the day of service.
