Acupuncturists to be added to par-provider network

AcupuncturistsBeginning January 1, 2019, the Empire Plan will begin adding acupuncturists to the participating provider network, initially focusing on in-state providers.

As acupuncturists are recruited, they will be added to the on-line directory immediately following receipt of their contract with United Healthcare (UHC). As with other providers, the par-provider directory will be able to identify network acupuncture providers by service rendered or name, and can search within a given geographical area by a desired radius. The office visit co-payment of $20 will apply.

The Food and Drug Administration considers acupuncture safe when applied by qualified practitioners using sterile needles. Based on current trends, the Empire Plan expects to see increased use of acupuncture services as consumers seek alternative treatments for acute and chronic pain.

UHC projects the acupuncture recruitment drive will take 1-2 years to fully mature into a robust network of acupuncturists that represent geographic areas throughout New York state. — Deborah Stayman
