Does your insurance company only cover acupuncture “in lieu of anesthesia”? If so, let us know so we can send you a letter from the Maryland Acupuncture Society. The purpose of the letter is to give it to your HR dept so that they understand what really is included in the “acupuncture benefit” that they provide. According to MAS, most HR dept’s don’t know about this caveat and they think you are receiving acupuncture for pain. When your company is shopping for insurance plans, they may see acupuncture listed but do not see that it’s only “in lieu of anesthesia”. This may seem like a shot in the dark by giving HR this letter but it does help!
