The WaoMirc (WISCONSIN ACUPUNCTURE & ORIENTAL MEDICINE INTEGRATIVE RESEARCH CONSORTIUM) clinic is an academic acupuncture and Oriental medicine research clinical practice based in Green Bay, WI USA within the Military Avenue Business District.

The WaoMirc clinic's open treatmentimage room is ≈2,000 ft² and of classical oriental medicine design which is a semi private treatment setting. In the open treatment room patients ley down on Japanese style tatami (2” Olympic Judo Caliber Mats) and are treated in an area divided behind binders alongside other patients who are also in their own areas divided behind binders similar to a modern day physical therapy treatment room. It is reccomended to wear loss fiting clothes to your appointment due to acupoints being located throughout the body.

The WaoMirc clinic is taking new patients including cash based uninsured patients (self-pay) or patients who have a health insurance plan that has no acupunture benefits (self-pay), and Out-of-network Insurance patients. All fees associated with the patient visit are due in full payment at time of service regardless if the patient is a cash based payer (self-pay) or Out-of-network insurance based payer. 

Acceptable forms of payment are most major credit cards types and local checks. We Also accept special health care  account for payment. These are just some types of accounts may be used for payment a flexible spending accounts (FSA), health savings accounts (HSA), Health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs), and healthcare debit/credit cards ext. Patients are highly recommended verify these special use healthcare payment type account plans for use for acupuncture care visits, access to current funds along with any coverage or other restrictions, and current account balances prior to visit. 

For Out-of-network Insurance based patients who have a health insurance plan with acupuncture benefits it is highly recommended that you the patient contact your insurance provider prior to your visit to verify your most current Out-of-network benefits and related information as plans frequently change. As a profeesional courtesy for Out-of-network insurance payer based patients the WaoMirc clinic can summit a claim on the patients behalf or provide a Superbill for the patient to summit to their own insurance provider for reimbursement of their visit bills. WaoMirc clinic cannot guarantee that the patients Out-of-network insurance plan will pay a reimbursement for any patient visits for any treatment services rendered, therefor the payment bill for the visit is ultimately the responsiblity of the patient. Meaning that seeking reimbursement for any billed service visits is done by the patient themself to their own Out-of-network Insurance provider sumitting claims on a patients behalf or provide a Superbill to the patient is only a profeesional courtesy and does not grauntee any reimbursement outcomes.

Here is some Basic questions for your health insurance provider regarding acupunture benfits: 

Do you have out-of-network coverage? 

Does your coverage have any exclusions or limitations? 

Do you have an annual deductible first or is acupuncture exempted from annual deductible? 

Do you have an annual visit limit if so what is the process to request additonal visits?

On behalf of WaoMirc clinic we would like to thank all the brave men and women of the USA uniformedimage services for their military service. WaoMirc clinic's Dr. Eric Vandenhouten is honored to be an In-Network provider with VA's Veterans Affairs Community Care Network (VA CCN) administered by OptumHealth Care Solutions, Inc. a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group to ensure Veterans receive the excellent AOM care they deserve from our clinic.
