Some policies are beginning to include acupuncture because of its cost effectiveness as a treatment and because consumers have shown a willingness to pay for it out of pocket. In some cases, injuries sustained while on the job or in a motor vehicle accident may be covered for acupuncture treatments under either workers compensation or automobile insurance policies (PIP). The web site www.acupuncture.com includes a list of insurers that cover acupuncture, many of which are on the west coast. Call your insurance company and ask if your current plan covers it or not. If the answer is no, give your money to a company that will provide you with what you want and need. You are the customer. It is your money and your health that we are talking about.
