Health Insurance Cover
VHI, Laya Healthcare, GloHeath and Aviva Hiberian Health all recognise that members of the Acupuncture Foundation Professional Association (AFPA) are properly trained acupuncturists. As a result these health insurance companies will contribute towards the cost of your treatments at my practice - the exact amount depends on what plan you are on and what other eligible costs you accumulate in a year.
Other health insurance schemes also cover treatments by AFPA members, these include ESB and Garda Medical Scheme among others. I would however recommend that you check with your insurance company prior to starting treatment to confirm that your individual policy covers it. Patients can also claim tax relief on a Form Med 1 which is available from the Revenue Commissioners.
