Insurance and Billing

Kirkland Whole Life Clinic is credentialed with several insurance companies including Aetna, American Specialty Health, Cigna, First Choice, and Lifewise. Our counselor accepts Premera, Regence, Aetna, First Choice, United Behavioral Health and others. We also accept auto accident, and personal injury cases. Please note that it is the patient’s responsibility to verify specific coverage for the services we provide.

Through the Every Category of Provider law, Washington state requires private insurance companies to provide a benefit for every category of health care provider. This includes naturopathic medicine, homeopathic medicine, physical medicine (such as soft-tissue manipulation), acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, nutrition consulting and counseling. The law does not dictate what the benefit must be (such as how many visits should be covered or who can deliver the care), but the result is that now several insurance companies will pay for alternative and complementary health care appointments. The law does not apply to insurance companies that are not privately funded, such as Medicare, Medicaid, Basic Health Plan and self-funded plans. Out-of-state medical plans are not necessarily required to follow this law. Please check with your plan to confirm coverage.

Each patient should check with their insurance provider to understand their specific benefits. Patients without insurance will be asked for payment at the time of their appointment. We accept cash, checks, debit cards, and all major credit cards.

Please note: In some instances, your insurance will cover all services. In the event that services are not covered by your insurance, you are responsible for paying any all charges.
