TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Financial Policy, Autumn 2020
Payment is due at the time of your visit by either cash, check or PayPal at ToBeLikeWater9@gmail.com.
I do not accept credit or bank cards in office.
Some insurance companies cover acupuncture. I do not accept direct payment from insurance. I will be happy to provide you with an insurance bill if you wish to file a claim.
If you need an invoice of payment for acupuncture treatment for tax or other purposes, requests for an invoice must be made at the time of your appointment.
I do not offer insurance bill for telehealth, Clean Language or mindfulness and movement sessions.
If you are in need of a medical doctor, I can offer a referral.
If you find my fees prohibitive, please let me know BEFORE your appointment; a sliding scale according to your income may be available.
So that we can stay on time, I greatly appreciate your focus on your health goals and consideration of the next patient. Please thoughtfully select the amount of time you need and understand if I have to keep within our scheduled time, even if that means ending the appointment before all your questions are answered.
Appointment Cancellation Policy:
Please be considerate of others who are waiting for appointments to become available. If you cannot make your appointment, please cancel 24 hours in advance. You may make changes to appointments online through my online booking site (via website), or contact me by phone, email or through my website. There is a fee for late cancellation: 80% of the service's fee. Cancellation due to emergency, unsafe travel or any common cold or flu symptoms is exempt. I will be happy to reschedule you for a more convenient time.
Due to my professional guidelines during the Covid-19 pandemic, you are required to attest to certain conditions prior to your appointment when signing my Covid-19 Liability Waiver.

you arrive at your office visit and have a temperature or symptoms of a common cold or flu;
you are unable or unwilling to attest to the conditions stated on the liability waiver;
you are unable or unwilling to wash hands upon entering the office;
you are unable or unwilling to wear a mask for the entirety of your visit unless otherwise instructed by me, as when you receive treatment face down.
