Mandated Benefits Review - Senate Bill 590 - Bill Overview

When acupuncture services are covered under a health insurance policy, Senate Bill 590 would require that licensed physician acupuncturists and licensed non-physician acupuncturists be reimbursed at the same rate. As the Insurance Federation notes, "Strictly speaking, this bill is not really a mandated benefit. Nothing in it requires that an insurer cover acupuncturist services."
