I am now a preferred provider with Blue Shield, whether you have an EPO or PPO. Check with your policy about copays and number of visits per year and I’ll take it from there. This year, I got a Blue Shield EPO with the Affordable Care Act and I can see an acupuncturist for $40 a visit, around half off the cash price! Check it out and let me know if you’d like to schedule on Tuesday afternoons or Thursdays. Salud!
