The Journal of American Medicine quotes an acupuncture and moxibustion, or “moxa” study siting between 33-37 weeks of pregnancy moxibustion “for 1 to 2 weeks increased fetal activity during the treatment period and cephalic presentation after the treatment period and at delivery.” We recommend scheduling 3-5 treatments in a row to achieve this goal. We will also give you “homework” to help the baby turn.
Please note: If you request a hospital visit at Boulder Community Hospital (BCH), or an office visits at the Acupuncture Clinic of Boulder outside of regular hours and the practitioner comes to provide services, regardless of service rendered (eg changes in labor status, or change of mind), you will be charged for the visit.
The Acupuncture Clinic of Boulder, Inc. does not bill insurance. If you have an out-of-network acupuncture benefit (please check for this benefit), we are happy to provide you with a Superbill for you to submit. Our office does not check or verify insurance benefits. This can typically be done by calling the number on the back of your insurance card or via an app provided by your insurance company. If you have an out-of-network benefit, please provide us with a diagnosis so we can put the proper codes on your Superbill.
If you have been in an auto accident and have MedPay we will provide you with a Superbill and you can be reimbursed directly by your insurance company. The Acupuncture Clinic of Boulder, Inc. no longer takes liens. This policy also applies to Worker’s Compensation.
The Acupuncture Clinic of Boulder, Inc. requires 24 hours (business day) notice for cancellations. If less than twenty-four hours notice is given, the patient will be charged the full price of their visit. Your scheduled appointment time is reserved just for you, and we frequently have a waitlist. We try not to overbook appointment times in order to provide excellent acupuncture care and ensure we have sufficient time to adequately treat our patients.
This policy allows other patients the opportunity to schedule in the time slot you are unable to keep. Therefore if you are unable to come, you will be charged as if you had attended the appointment. This charge is your financial responsibility and you will be required to pay this cancellation charge before your next scheduled appointment. We are unable to bill your insurance for missed appointments.
Thank you for respecting our policy. We look forward to treating you!
Please pay attention to the weather! We understand Colorado weather is unpredictable. If you live on a big hill and/or typically are unable to leave your residence on snow days, please call us to cancel and open this time slot up for other people. If it turns out to be a mild storm and you wish to come in, give us a call same day and we will try to accommodate you.
