In brief: Yes

Check your policy.
If they are an md or a do they should be covered by your policy according to what insurance you purchased. A dc or acupuncturist might also be covered.

In brief: Yes.

Yes. Some holistic physicians will bill your office visit to your insurance company on your behalf.
The physician is then reimbursed according to what that insurance company pays for a standard office visit.

In brief: Sometimes

It depends on the type of practitioner, whether s/he is already medically licensed (md, do, nd, rn, etc), what state you live in, what your insurance policy allows, etc.
For instance, chiropractors are widely covered by medical insurance. Acupuncturists who are not licensed physicians may be more variably covered if at all. Unlicensed homeopaths are usually not covered by insurance.
