Auto injury and most health insurance claims require a prescription for massage from a medical doctor. At this time we are unable to accept OHP, Medicaid, Jackson Care Connect, or Regence Blue Cross insurance. We do not currently accept Worker’s Compensation claims. We accept most health savings (HSA) cards and flex spending (FSA) cards. For more information about insurance billing, please visit this page.
