My patients here in Central MA may not know this, but a few years ago, I worked with the Acupuncture Society of Massachusetts, where among other things, we fought very hard to mandate insurance coverage for acupuncture in the Commonwealth. We had a lobbyist, and we were constantly up on Beacon Hill meeting with legislators and testifying before the Joint Committee of Public Health or Ways & Means pleading our case.
At the time, Mass Health was incredibly frustrating to us, because while the policy SAID it covered acupuncture, they would only PAY medical doctors.
Well friends, times, they are a-changin', and we are pleased to announce that Fitchburg Acupuncture now accepts Mass Health patients!
If you are a Mass Health patient with "the blue card", you get 20 visits per year with no copay, so you can go right on ahead and click the "schedule now" button at the top of any page on this website!
Hope to see you soon, we'll get you feeling better in no time.
