Insurance coverage of complementary health approaches is complex and confusing—so much so that it’s almost impossible to make any general statements about it. Coverage may vary greatly depending on state laws, regulations and differences among specific insurance plans. If you would like to use a complementary approach and you’re wondering whether your health insurance will cover it, it’s a good idea to do some investigating. Contacting your health insurance provider is a good way to start.
