Researching Insurance Coverage
Researching which insurance providers cover complimentary and integrative can be tricky, since there is no one tool to compare complimentary health policies side-by-side. However, there are some useful tools and resources you can use to get more information.

Here is a link to a study published in 2016 that contains some great statistics about the number of US adults using complimentary therapies, as well as the type of paymetn they used. PDF download is available as well. NCHS Data Brief 235 pdf

The National Center for Complimentary and Integrative Health also publishes  some great information about paying for complimentary therapies, as well as good questions to ask your insurance carrier.

If you want to know exactly what an insurance provider covers, you will need to search their website for that information, or contact them directly. You can also use website to look at different types of policies and coverage as well (you won't need to create an account or apply for coverage to be able to preview plans). I entered made-up information for my birthdate, etc. since I just wanted to look at available plans for research purposes.
