  1. Contact your local VA clinic and schedule an appointment with your Primary Care Provider (PCP).
  2. During your PCP appointment, tell your doctor that you would like to receive acupuncture treatment from Felek Acupuncture, we are listed in the VA database as a local, non-VA care provider.
  3. The VA will then contact Felek Acupuncture and schedule a time that is convenient for you.

Your acupuncture treatment will be billed directly to the VA!
