Insurance coverage for acupuncture treatment varies from policy to policy, but benefits for acupuncture are becoming more common.

Accredited and Licensed Acupuncturists
At Healing Foundations, you will only receive acupuncture from trained and licensed acupuncturists. In the state of Illinois, licensed acupuncturists are required to complete a minimum of 3 academic years of study, including more than 1000 hours of classroom time and more than 600 hours of hands-on clinic time treating patients. To become licensed, they must pass a rigorous national board examination given by the National Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Licensed acupuncturists use acupuncture and its underlying theories as their main therapy, enabling them to utilize their expertise to effectively and safely treat even complicated cases. Their extensive training allows them to take advantage of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine's broad range of applications as well as go more in depth in treating individual cases, helping them to attain optimal results. Other practitioners, such as chiropractors, medical doctors, and physical therapists may not be licensed. These therapists can practice a style of acupuncture called "dry needling" with 100 hours or even less of training.
