About Health Plan Coverage

No insurance plans cover workshops or massage. Because coverage of complementary medicine clinical services varies widely among health plans, patients are responsible for payment of services. 

Before you can schedule an appointment for clinical services, a SCIM representative must confirm your insurance eligibility and benefits.
