- Question from Lanie M.: How can I pay for complementary treatments? Does insurance cover any of them?
- Answers - Beth Baughman DuPree, M.D., F.A.C.S. From state to state and from insurance carrier to insurance carrier, there are many different policies regarding complementary therapies. I know that in Pennsylvania, when a massage therapist is working for a chiropractor, many therapies can be covered. But this again would have to be checked on an individual basis. Hopefully in the future, the medical community as a whole will recognize the importance of these therapies and we will be able to affect globally their coverage by insurance companies.
