NEW PATIENTS

Insurance Plans
We accept PPO insurance plans as out-of-network providers and we can bill your insurance. While we can’t bill Medicare, some secondary insurance plans cover acupuncture. It is definitely worth checking to see what your acupuncture benefits are for your plan! To verify your insurance, please click the box below and fill out your information. We will follow up with you via phone or email as soon as we can.

Insurance Policies

We are an out-of-network provider for PPO Insurance plans and can bill your insurance with the following conditions: All Insurance patients must keep a credit card on file and be responsible for paying out of pocket until their Insurance begins to pay. For those that have Insurance Providers that pay our Company directly, you will be switched to a copay once your deductible is met. If your Insurance Provider sends the Insurance checks directly to your residence, you are responsible for bringing them into our Center. You must pay for your services at the time of treatment. The Insurance Company notifies us of the amount sent to you to pay Angela Kung Acupuncture & Wellness Center for your services. You can choose to bring in the check or charge your credit card for any balance owed to us. We will reconcile your account and verify if there’s a credit that can be used or refunded to you. Remember, the Insurance Company makes out the checks in your name for the services rendered in our Center. Keeping this money or refusing to pay us the amount of the Insurance payment is a felony and we will charge your credit card on file. Please note that our Insurance rates are higher than our cash rates, and if the Insurance Company pays more than our cash rates for our services, that money belongs to our Center in full. We appreciate your patience and understanding with this.

Please call our office to schedule your new patient visit. (949) 420-1338 We take pride in customizing your first healing day with us. After you are scheduled, you will be sent an email to log into your Patient Portal and fill out your New Patient paperwork. We look forward to seeing you and giving you an office tour. Each new patient will not only have the opportunity to use complimentary infrared sauna, but also receive one free PEMF treatment. Please ask to schedule the PEMF when convenient for you. 

Initial acupuncture visits generally last from 45 to 90 minutes. On your first day, your acupuncturist will take a detailed health history, perform a physical exam, and provide you with your unique treatment plan, including Chinese herbal formulas and supplements from our very own signature line.

During your first exam, your acupuncturist will spend time getting to know you and your health concerns. You may be asked a wide range of questions about your symptoms, eating, exercise, sleep habits, emotional states and anything that may offer insight into your health.

Your practitioner will also employ diagnostic tools that are unique to acupuncture and TCM such as tongue and pulse diagnosis.

Your treatment plan

Once your acupuncturist has gathered enough information, you’ll receive a comprehensive diagnosis and a treatment plan that will explain:

  • Your underlying imbalances
  • Your time line of care
  • What types of treatment you will receive

Getting the most out of treatment

For the best treatment results, keep a few things in mind:

  • Please show up on time
  • Don’t eat a large meal before your visit
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothes
  • Be sure to discuss any questions or concerns with your acupuncturist
  • Refrain from overexertion, drugs or alcohol for at least six hours after treatment
  • Follow your treatment plan between visits
  • Keep all of your appointments, as each visit builds upon the previous ones

How treatment works

To treat any Qi imbalances, fine, sterile needles will be inserted at specific acupuncture points along the meridian pathways. Your acupuncturist will concentrate on acupuncture points related to specific organs, based on your unique issues and symptoms.

Your acupuncturist may include other related therapies in your treatment plan, such as cupping, Gwa Sha or moxabustion. Herbal remedies are another important aspect of acupuncture and TCM, and it is important to understand and follow your practitioner’s directions in order to get the most benefit from these treatments.

Your role in the healing process

Your actions are a key component of your treatment plan. Focusing on your health and committing to a healthy lifestyle are the best steps you can take for your well-being. Together, you and your acupuncturist can heal your imbalances and help you achieve harmony and balance.

Even after your symptoms are resolved, acupuncture can assist you in maintaining your health, and possibly prevent future imbalances. The more you incorporate acupuncture and TCM into your life, the more you’ll learn to nurture your body, mind and spirit.

Acupuncture is not an instant fix.

True healing takes time and dedication. Depending on your current health and symptoms, you could feel better right away, or you may need treatments for weeks, months or years to achieve the results you want. Your acupuncturist can give you an idea of what to expect. With a little patience and an open mind, you’ll be on your way to health and vitality.

Acupuncture and TCM offer a safe and effective holistic health care system. This natural approach can both resolve symptoms and enhance your overall health.

By taking the right steps and planting the seeds of health, you are on the road to a healthier you!
