Many insurance companies are now covering acupuncture, especially for the treatment of pain, but some still are not. MediCare typically does not cover acupuncture services, even for pain, but many MediCare add-on policies do, so if you are a MediCare patient with extend coverage through a provider like Kaiser be sure to check your coverage. MediCal has added acupuncture coverage, contact us with your plan and we will check for you. If you have MediCal coverage through IEHP you do have coverage, give us your ID and we will obtain the needed referral for you.
