In the past few years, many if not all of the major health insurance companies in America have been offering some level of acupuncture benefits in their plans. Now not every plan has acupuncture benefits, but it’s always a good idea to call your carrier and find out exactly what your benefits include .
Your plan may include, acupuncture, chiropractic, or massage and you may not have known. The truth is, health companies would prefer people use alternative care treatments as opposed to going to see their doctor often times because it is a cheaper pay out for them often.
So check the back of your insurance card and call the number on the back to see if you have any acupuncture benefits. Sometimes they lump all of their alternative care treatments together, but that’s good too. If they don’t offer you any treatments under your plan, ask them why not and if it costs any extra to get it added.
All the best,
