Will insurance cover acupuncture?

Some health insurance policies cover the expense for acupuncture treatment. You should check with your insurance company to determine policy coverage before beginning treatment. Here are questions to ask your insurer:

  • Do you cover acupuncture?
  • What conditions do you cover?
  • Who, exactly, has to perform the acupuncture (MD, DC, L.Ac.)?
  • Where (hospital, clinic, provider’s office) must the treatment be performed?
