Does my health insurance cover me for acupuncture?

As acupuncture is becoming more popular in the UK, some private health insurance companies now cover it in their policies, including:

  • WPA
  • National Friendly
  • Leeds Hospital Fund
  • Medisure
  • BCWA
  • Simply Health
  • PHSA
  • Aviva Healthcare
  • Pru Health
  • Groupama Healthcare
  • Exeter Family Friendly
  • CS Healthcare
  • General and Medical Healthcare
  • BUPA
  • WHA
  • Westfield
  • Medicash
  • HSF
  • Healthshield
  • Engage Mutual Assurance

This list isn’t a guarantee! Please check with your insurer to make sure that your policy covers you for acupuncture treatments. You may also need to be referred by your GP – please check your policy for any specific conditions of treatment.

My standard receipt should contain enough information to cover you for a claim on your health insurance, but if your insurer requires specific information, please let me know and I’ll supply this.
