There are several private health insurers that cover acupuncture treatment by BAcC-member acupuncturists.

Depending on the health insurance company and your policy with them, this may need to be qualified by a referral from a GP or consultant.

It is important to check first with your health insurance to discover whether there are any restrictions or requirements to your specific policy, as these can change, whilst others will cover treatments only up to a certain value per year.
