ACUPUNCTURE COVERED BY HEALTH INSURANCE?
Some insurance companies
currently cover acupuncture costs, other companies do not yet recognize the
value of acupuncture. Each health policy
must be reviewed to determine acupuncture benefits.
The AAMA (American Academy of
Medical Acupuncture) is working to inform insurance companies and the public in
order to standardize payment practices and accessibility to this type of
treatment. You can help by insisting
that your insurance company offer you reimbursement for medically indicated
acupuncture treatments before you accept their policy.
