While insurance covers a portion of almost all care and medicines from our Western Medical Doctors, CAM is another story. Insurance covers acupuncture, if your insurance company covers it. Call them and find out. If your insurance company doesn't, ask them to change their policy. If they do, thank them. Every insurance company has different policies; some cover CAM and some don't.
I feel strongly that access to quality health care should not depend on economic status. That is why I set aside 20% of my patient hours for community clinic. If receiving treatment helps you "feel and function better" and it is a financial hardship, let me know.
