If your insurance coverage runs through the calendar year, you may wish to start planning your massage appointments now. With only 3 months left until the Christmas Holiday Season, it is a good idea to schedule your visits in advance. This way you can avoid the hassle of battling the December traffic during the most hectic time of the year and extra stress associated with making last minute appointments. You may find it helpful to contact your insurance company now in order to find out what your available coverage is for the remainder of the year.

Clients with the Medavie Blue Cross can conveniently submit their claims online. It is important to note that this particular insurance company accepts claims only if the therapy has been rendered by practitioners registered in their system. Please be assured that all of our health practitioners at Pacific Wellness are registered with Blue Cross.
Regarding Acupuncturist Coverage – As mentioned in our previous Newsletter, acupuncture has been regulated in Ontario under the Regulated Health Professions Act. As of April, this year, all acupuncturists must be registered with College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO), in order to practice acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine in Ontario. Accordingly, most insurance companies now require the acupuncturist’s registration number with the CTCMPAO. All of our acupuncturists at Pacific Wellness are registered, and should be recognized by all insurance companies that provide acupuncturist coverage.
