Medicare participants have been told that Medicare covers acupuncture. However because acupuncturists can not become Medicare providers, the acupuncture must be performed by doctors or nurse practitioners. Medicare also places strict guidelines for this acupuncture coverage to that only back pain with specific restrictions is covered.
Other insurance coverage varies from state to state. Contact your insurance provider to learn what kind of care is covered. Here are a few questions to ask:
- Will my plan cover acupuncture?
- How many visits per calendar year?
- Do I need a referral?
- Do I have a co-pay?
- Do I have a deductible?
- If yes, has it been met?
