You will need to check with your health insurance to determine if massage is covered under your plan. Coverage benefits depend on your insurance plan. In addition, some plans require a doctor referral. I will bill your insurance in units of 15 minutes. Most insurers have a maximum of four units (60 minutes) per visit.
Health Savings Account (HSA) payments are accepted. Massage therapy is a qualified medical expense if the reason you are seeking treatment is medically necessary. Your physician can make that determination and write a prescription for massage. I do not require a prescription to use HSA funds; however, I highly recommend that you obtain one in case your HSA bank requests it.
Required for billing insurance

- Intel employees: You do not need to call for benefits if you have Anthem Blue Cross or Providence. You have a deductible or a co-insurance that will be due at the time of service.
- A prescription from your medical doctor may be required before the appointment can be made. Please contact your insurance to determine your benefits and ask if a prescription or prior authorization is needed.
- Intel plans (Anthem Blue Cross and Providence) require a prescription
- A presenting complaint of loss of function due to pain, tension, injury, and/or lack of mobility.
