Insurance Cover for Acupuncture 
from a member of BAcC - 
the British Acupuncture Council

Can you get insurance cover for acupuncture treatment you receive from a member (like Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott) of the British Acupuncture Council - the BAcC?

Here's a list of the companies that provide cover. Please note that the list is updated periodically, so it does change. You'll need to check with your insurance provider to be sure.

Gradually more companies are realising that providing insurance cover for acupuncture makes monetary sense for them.

Research is revealing the conditions where acupuncture either

  • treats successfully or 
  • reduces the symptoms or pain, or 
  • where it lengthens the period before more drastic - 'heroic!' - treatment is needed.

In fact there is a huge and growing amount of information on the long-term benefits of 'traditional' acupuncture, being the kind that is based on the classics, which go back at least 2500 years.

This huge body of experience and knowledge takes a number of years to learn, many hours of supervised clinical practice to practise effectively (nowadays 3600 hours are required in the case of practitioners accepted into the British Acupuncture Council), and then who knows how many years to learn the rudiments of wisdom!

Research into Acupuncture

How acceptable to science is this research?

Nowadays even acupuncturists have accepted the need to submit to modern methods of statistical research. You can read about some of the work being done here

The British Acupuncture Council publishes a series of research extracts on different conditions based on what most people accept as being good standards. The following is not a complete list.

Bear in mind also that the strength of 'traditional' acupuncture is that it accepts that you can help yourself with appropriate advice and action, wisdom that has accumulated over at least 2500 years! Just inserting a needle may not be enough.

NB Because a condition is not listed doesn't mean it isn't treatable with acupuncture!

Acupuncture theory is so wide-ranging, that it is common for people to come for one problem and find that others start mending too.

Why? Because in treating the whole person, gradually all the bits come together. Traditional acupuncture aims to be holistic: it aims to help your body get itself better, eventually at many different levels.

Insurance Cover for Acupuncture

Just to remind you, please don't assume that your company definitely provides insurance cover for acupuncture. There may be limits or additional requirements before they'll pay. And, though this may seem obvious, you must already be a member of the insurance company's scheme to be able to benefit from it.

Read here a list of companies providing insurance cover for acupuncture to a greater or lesser extent.
