Insurance Providers

Acupuncture Insurance in BC

Most extended benefits plans typically cover Acupuncture services. However, since we don't have access to your specific insurance plan, it's best to check with your employer or insurance provider to understand the details of your coverage. We respect your privacy and are unable to access your account or inquire about your specific benefits.

It's important to note that different health plans may have varying levels of coverage. Some plans may offer 100% coverage with unlimited visits, while others may have a set dollar amount for you to utilize. To get accurate information about your coverage, it's best to reach out to your plan provider directly.


In some cases, certain benefits plans may require a physician's referral for reimbursement. It's advisable to check with your provider beforehand if this requirement applies to your plan. Please consult your employer or insurance provider for the specific details of your coverage before your visit.
