BC MSP Premium Assistance
For MSP Premium Assistance Recipients, MSP contributes $23 per visit for a combined annual limit of 10 visits each calendar year for the following services: acupuncture, chiropractic, massage therapy, naturopathy, physical therapy and non-surgical podiatry. MSP does not provide any coverage for supplementary benefits received outside of the province.
If you are not sure whether you qualify for coverage or not, we will check and confirm it for you in clinic. Furthermore, we can let you know how many visits you left for the year. Please bring your care card when you have the first consultation and treatment.
Extended Health Benefits
Acupuncture treatment is covered by most extended health plans. Please check your benefits booklet or contact your insurance provider in order to be clear on the details of your coverage. Usually a certain amount per year is allocated to different types of therapy such as RMT registered massage therapy, physiotherapy, chiropractor, and acupuncture. Some providers pay a percentage (usually 70% ~ 100%) per visit. Some plans offer a dollar amount per year instead of a percentage.
We can bill your insurance provider directly so that you do not need to pay with your pocket money.
