Q: Is homeopathy covered by insurance plans?
Many health insurance companies DO cover part or all of your visits depending on your practitioner’s qualifications. Currently CSH (Canadian Society of Homeopaths) Registered members are recognized by the following insurance companies for supplemental or paramedical health coverage: *
Pacific Blue Cross
Alberta Blue Cross
The Canadian Society of Homeopaths is working with insurance companies across Canada to expand this list.
* The terms of coverage vary according to the individual, group and self-employed plans offered within each company. Patients are advised to check with their insurance company as to whether their policy includes homeopathic visits (sometimes included under supplemental or paramedical services). If your policy does not provide the coverage you require, you are encouraged to be pro-active by writing the insurance company requesting them to include homeopathy in your plan.
