Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Claims & Inner Works Acupuncture
At Inner Works Acupuncture we can bill personal injury protection (PIP) claims from motor vehicle accidents. Workers’ compensation for on-the-job injuries also provides limited coverage for acupuncture. Workers’ compensation requires a physician’s referral for acupuncture treatment.
PIP Coverage Parameters
All non-commercial auto insurance policies in Oregon (non-commercial) have mandatory coverage for no-fault injuries sustained in auto, bicycle, or pedestrian accidents. This is not mandatory for motorcycle accidents, but it may still be covered by your specific provider.
PIP coverage for medical bills lasts for one to two years following the accident in question, depending on your policy issue date. PIP does cover acupuncture and manual therapy (Zero Balancing) for motor vehicle accident injuries. If you are injured, please call your insurance company to open a claim and verify your coverage.
