If you need urgent details, your insurance company may also be able to provide information regarding your plan coverage. There are many important questions to ask and some call centers wait to be asked. Its hard to know which questions to ask. Let us know if you have questions.

We ask that patients pay for their portion of the appointment (copay, co-insurance, etc.) in the office at time of service. Please be prepared to pay for your visit and any additional herbs or supplements that might be prescribed. We accept cash, credit cards, and most HSA cards.

Exceptions and specifics:
Our massage therapists are paneled with most major insurance companies excluding CHP (kaiser self referral). We encourage patients interested in receiving massage to contact their primary care provider to obtain a referral.
Unfortunately the Kaiser CHP panel is currently closed, Dr. Vislocky, DC is still working to get paneled. We will update all current patients on any changes that might occur and encourage you to check back if you are interested in receiving care under insurance coverage. If you are a Kaiser member let Kaiser know that you would like to see Dr. Vislocky. This will increase her chances and decrease the timeline we wait for her paneling.
