9 Points to Using Your Naturopathic Health Coverage Benefits

9 Points to Using Your Naturopathic Health Coverage Benefits

It’s nearly the end of 2014, and many people are thinking about their extended health care plans. While naturopathic medicine is not covered by OHIP, it may be part of your benefits package through your employer. Dr. Mai Heath shares some points to consider about making the most of your benefits package to improve your health!   1. You may have extended health coverage and not know it. Many extended health care plans in North America cover naturopathic medical treatment. Contact your employer & insurance company to find out what your particular benefits are.   2. Not all coverage plans are created equal. Extended health care benefits may cover a variety of services from naturopathic medicine, physiotherapy, osteopathy, massage therapy, doula care, chiropractics, and more. Packages vary in the configuration of services that are provided coverage.   3. Don’t waste them. They are part of your salary. Having an extended health plan is a valuable asset. It is your right to use your benefits, not a privilege. You work and make sacrifices for your health coverage. Do not let them go to waste. Covered health services are a part of your compensation for the service you provide the company you work with. Therefore, they are a part of your salary.   4. Naturopathic Medicine can help you improve your job performance. Studies show that workers & employers alike benefit from naturopathic medicine. Natural therapies are associated with improved quality of life and less time away from work. It is also found to be more cost-effective than many conventional treatments and pain medication.   5. If you don’t use it, you loose it. Most insurance plans renew at the start of the calendar year. Very much like paid leave, benefits do not tend to carry over to the next calendar year. Therefore, should you fail to use health benefits before the end of the year they will expire and you will not be able to use these benefits. That’s like paying several hundreds to thousands of dollars in overdraft fees to your bank. That’s one heck of a penalty!   6. Family & loved ones in need can benefit (through you). Contact your employer & insurance company to find out the particulars of your coverage. You may be pleasantly surprised to find you have coverage for family, children, spouse, common law spouse, partners, and/or dependents. Don’t rob your loved ones of this opportunity for care.   7. But I don’t have insurance coverage! What about me? While many North Americans have extended healthcare benefits, not all do. Many of my patients don’t have coverage for naturopathic treatments. These patients pay fee for service and generally find that the improvement to their quality...
