The Big Question:
“Why can’t my acupuncturist just give me the discount without joining the Acupuncture Health Network (AHN)?”
There are two reasons why acupuncturists offer the AHN patient membership program in their offices:
The first reason is because in some states it is illegal for a doctor to set up an internal “dual fee system” where they charge a lower fee than their insured rate. However, if your acupuncturist is a participant in the nationwide network of Preferred Acupuncturists, they can legally offer an AHN patient membership with the guaranteed minimum of 25% reduced rate on every visit!
The second reason an acupuncturist chooses to offer the AHN program is because AHN is the total office solution that saves time and money and increases the probability of continued care. Your AHN membership saves acupuncturists the hassle of filing insurance claims, billing, paying office staff, paying for office supplies, postage and all the expenses of the daily insured operation. With AHN, these expenses are non-existent, so why should you pay more?
That’s right, your AHN provider agrees too…you shouldn’t! The Acupuncture Health Network is the simple, reduced cash fee system that makes quality healthcare more affordable for you… and your acupuncturist!
Plans will vary between offices. Overall, you could save up to 90% on your total Acupuncture services.
We are so sure that you will save money we guarantee it. The entire cost of your membership will be refunded in full if you use your network card during your membership year and do not save at least the cost of your membership. Just send us the bills from your provider.
You will meet with your Acupuncturist for a consultation, where upon he/she will determine if Acupuncture can help you. Your provider will then decide what specific procedures and services are needed to determine exactly where your problem lies. Everyone is different, therefore you will be treated as an individual, not a number. Everyone in your family is entitled to this same procedure.
Simply call our membership department at 800-385-1404 and we will contact all the provders in your area. If you have a preferred provider you wish to see, we will contact him/her on your behalf.
The Acupuncture Health Network has a very large membership base and therefore has been able to negotiate substantial discount contracts with its providers. By joining our plan, it shows that the Acupuncturist is more interested in the patient than in their insurance.
No! The Acupuncture Health Network is not insurance and your membership fee is not based upon the amount of money you spend for Acupuncture services
There is no limit to how many times you can use the program or how much money you can save. As long as you are a paid member, you may use the plan as often as you like during your membership year.
