Curious About Acupuncture?

Now it’s covered!

If you’ve ever tried acupuncture or are interested in it, we’ve got great news. We’ve expanded our alternative care options to better serve the diverse needs of our members by providing access to unlimited acupuncture coverage with no prior authorization or referrals required.

This new acupuncture benefit was designed to help you receive the holistic care you need and deserve. An alternative treatment for pain, acupuncture is commonly used to relieve discomfort associated with a variety of conditions, including: tension, migraines, neck pain and osteoarthritis.

In addition to the new benefit, you can also save on many other wellness programs and services including massage, meditation, stress management, and brain fitness (Brain HQ) exercises.

How the new acupuncture benefit works

  • Your visits are subject to your plan’s specialist or primary care physician cost share.
  • If your plan allows for out-of-network benefits, your visit will be subject to your out-of-network deductible and/or coinsurance if you choose to see an out-of-network provider. You will need to pay the provider out of pocket and submit a reimbursement1 form.

How to find an acupuncturist

  1. Reimbursement applies only to plans that have out-of-network benefits. For in-network only plans, members must visit a contracting provider within the Tufts Health Plan network.

    Acupuncture will be offered as a benefit January 1st for new members and upon renewal date for existing members.
