Is Naturopathic medicine covered by insurance?

Yes. Naturopathic medicine is reimbursed through your extended health insurance. The amount of coverage varies depending on your plan but it is generally in the region of $200 - $500 per year. For most people this is plenty for high quality primary care, natural medicine and wellness from a Naturopathic doctor.

To make things a little easier, I currently submit eligible insurance claims on behalf of my clients to the following companies:

  1. Pacific blue cross
  2. Telus e-Health 
    1. Chambers of commerce group insurance
    2. Cowen
    3. Desjardins Insurance
    4. Great-West Life
    5. Industrial alliance
    6. Johnson Inc.
    7. Manulife Financial
    8. Maximum Benefit or Johnston Group
    9. Standard Life
    10. Sun Life Financial

If you are covered by another insurance provider, please contact them directly before your first visit to ensure coverage.

* If you are eligible for MSP premium you may be reimbursed $23 for a maximum of 10 visits per year.

* All clients can opt to pay their entire bill and submit a receipt for reimbursement. It is generally a fast an easy process.

*All direct claim submissions must be done after the visit while you are still at the office and any remaining balance paid in full.
