Does insurance cover acupuncture?

Acupuncture insurance benefits from Anthem Blue Cross, Health Comp, Cigna, Blue Shield of California, Department of Veterans Affairs. Petaluma, CA.

Acupuncture can be beneficial for many health conditions and many insurance plans now offer acupuncture benefits. Insurance providers that may cover your acupuncture treatment include:

  • Anthem Blue Cross
  • Health Comp
  • Cigna
  • Blue Shield of California
  • Department of Veterans Affairs


How Many Acupuncture Treatments Will I Need?

The benefits of acupuncture are cumulative, so more then one treatment is necessary. For acute conditions you can expect to have 10 to 15 treatments, but you will usually begin to feel relief after just the first few. Chronic conditions may take longer to respond, depending on the type, severity, and duration of the condition. I recommend checking with your insurance provider to see how many treatments they cover. Preventative treatments and treatments for general well-being may also be scheduled on an as-needed basis.
