BC Medical Services PlanMedical Services Plan of BC (MSP) funding for acupuncture treatment is available for people receiving premium assistance. If you bring your BC care card to your initial appointment, we can confirm your coverage or let you know how many treatments you qualify for or have in the year. A doctor’s referral is NOT required.
MSP pays for a combined annual limit of 10 visits on acupuncture treatment, massage therapy, physiotherapy, chiropractic, naturopathy and non-surgical podiatry. MSP covers $23.00 per visit. We bill MSP directly; you will be asked to pay for the balance of your treatment fees.
Extended Health Benefits
Extended health benefits vary depending on your plan, but acupuncture is typically between 70-100% of the treatment fee. Some plans offer a dollar amount per year instead of a percentage. You may wish to check your benefits booklet or contact your insurance provider for details on your coverage.
To receive an Extended Health Benefits insurance reimbursement, submit your invoices to your insurance provider directly or we can submit your Extended Health Benefits directly for some insurance companies. Based on your specific coverage, you will be asked to pay for the balance of your treatment fees.
