Which individual health insurance plan cover acupuncture in state of california?

Which individual health insurance plan cover acupuncture in state of california?

Ask insurers: I can't advise a given plan because each insurer offers many different plans that cover different things. You should ask this question to the insurance companies. However, my experience is that a plan that covers acupuncture is likely to be very expensive. It may be cheaper to get a plan that covers major medical expenses and pay for acupuncture out-of-pocket! ...Read more

Do you know if the big companies like aetna, blue cross, blue shield, or cigna will have low-cost insurance plans from health care reform?

Do you know if the big companies like aetna, blue cross, blue shield, or cigna will have low-cost insurance plans from health care reform?

Probably so...: That will differ among states, depending on which companies decide to sell health insurance in a particular state. The type of plan and level coverage that an insurance company sells through the Obamacare health insurance marketplaces should be the same quality plan as the company sells to people outside of the marketplace program. California's marketplace will sell several levels of coverage. ...Read more

The: The easiest way to do this is to call the physician you would like to see there (do it backwards, find a good doctor then get the insurance) and ask them about the plans they accept and then do the research which one of those would be best and most economical for you. This is probably a good universal rule to follow. There are so many insurances and within each one so many plans that its easier to get help from the doctor you would like to see and the hospital they trust most. ...Read more

Unclear question!: Are you asking if you can use your insurance to pay for a Healthtap Prime consult?

Yes, but........: All insurance companies offer plans that cover almost any procedure you want. The real issue is what plan your employer has bought for you. In these tough times, companies are buying less expensive plans that cover few services and that have low dollar limits. Always remember that you get what you pay for. ...Read more

I have blue shield PPo insurance and want to use it for telederm consult rather than paying out of pocket for healthtap prime?

Try going locally: HealthTap PRIME is a nationwide service (and also accessible via smartphone, iPad, or laptop, from outside the U.S.) where a patient doesn't already have a relationship with the doctor. I have not seen insurance pay for anything like it. Here in N. California, Stanford Health Care (as in Stanford University) has an eMedicine service for Dermatology, but you have to already be a Stanford patient. ...Read more

Are most colposcopys and biopsies covered with insurance? . I have blue cross blue shield federal with a $25 co-pay. Can you give an estimated price.

Don't know: You will have to ask your doctor about the estimated cost. This varies from region to region and doctor to doctor. Insurance coverage varies widely and that question would be best answered by your insurance company (there should be a phone number for questions on your card) or the human resources office at work. Hope this helps. Good luck ...Read more

As a young professional w/ a mobile lifestyle, how would you recommend I locate and vet a caring primary care physician? (HMO, Blue Shield CA)

In my opinion (only): Your BEST BETS are your FRIENDS/RELATIVES/WORK PLACE! Ask them if they have a physician they trust...find out (in advance) the list of Participating Physicians in your HMO, and finally KEEP GOING! You may not find one the first time! (Don't worry you will hurt some Doc's feelings if you can't get along after the first visit or two!)

Hope this helps!
Good Luck

In: In the state of florida, the marchman act addresses getting help for individuals with serious problems with substance abuse, who are not open to treatment. This law can help families through the courts to get loved ones into court ordered and court monitored "intervention assessment stabilization, or detoxification, and long-term treatment". A family member can petition the court.
Under the baker act, which is specific for psychiatric conditions, even if he has known psychiatric diagnoses, his doctor can only detain him against his will for a brief period unless there is court intervention and he is deemed to be at imminent risk to self or others.
I suggest you obtain legal advice. Additionally, do not remain in the home iwith your spouse if you are afraid that you or your son are in danger. You can ask the police who intervened for local contact information regarding domestic violence advocacy. If is important that a safety plan be developed. "knights of kindness" lists a number of florida resources that may be beneficial. ...Read more
