INSURANCE COVERAGE

BC Medical Services Plan


Insurance Coverage Medical Services Plan of BC (MSP) funding for acupuncture treatment is available for people receiving premium assistance. Not sure if you qualify for coverage? Don’t worry, we will confirm this for you and let you know how many treatments you have remaining for the year. Please bring your care card or personal health number with you to your initial appointment. A doctor’s referral is NOT required.
 

MSP pays for a combined annual limit of 10 visits for acupuncture treatment, massage therapy, physiotherapy, chiropractic, naturopathy and non-surgical podiatry. MSP covers $23.00 per visit and for your convenience, we bills MSP directly. You are charged for the balance of your treatment fees.

 

Extended Health Benefits

Extended health benefits vary from plan to plan and usually coverage for acupuncture therapy is between 70-100% of treatment fees. Some plans offer a dollar amount per year instead of a percentage.
 

Please check your benefits booklet or contact your insurance provider in order to be clear on the details of your coverage.

Direct Billing to Extended Health Plans

Acupuncture treatment is covered by most Extended Health Care Plans in BC. We now offer direct billing to many Extended Health Plans. If your insurance company doesn’t allow this, you can submit a claim for reimbursement by mail or online using your treatment receipt. Once your insurance company processes your claim, they will mail you a cheque or send a direct deposit to your bank account. (We recommend that you submit your receipts regularly – each 3 months or so is a good habit to get into.)

Some claims may require further processing. In this case, we can submit your claim to your insurance provider with condition of receiving your credit card information for back-up payment. Once your insurance provider send us the confirmation/result of your coverage, we will proceed on the payment and send you a receipt by email. The result from your insurance provider will determine how much it gets charged. This service is free of charge, means if your benefit covers 100% of the treatment fees, there will be no charge applies to you at all.
