Coverage for Integrative Care
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation/ Health Research and Educational Trust, more employers are providing insurance coverage for integrative therapies, such as acupuncture, chiropractic, and massage. The study found the number of employers offering coverage for acupuncture jumped from 33 percent to 47 percent between 2002 and 2004, and that the percentage for chiropractic jumped from 79 percent to 87 percent during that same time. While massage is still not covered by most insurance companies, some programs such as Aetna's Natural Alternatives and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia offer discounts for bodywork.
