Insurance and Coverage
In British Columbia, Naturopathic medical services are not covered by basic medical services plan (MSP). Premium assistance MSP may have some coverage but it is important for you to check with MSP before your appointment.
Naturopathic Medicine is covered by most extended health care plans. Many people have extended health care coverage through your employment.
Teck offers benefits for alternative health care, as do many other local employers. It is important to look into your health care coverage through your extended health care plans and have a good idea as to what is covered.
Asking your provider the right questions may eliminate any sort of confusion:
- What is the maximum amount per year that I can get covered for myself and my family?
- Is there a limit to an initial visit consultation?
- Is there a limit to follow up visit consultations?
- Do you cover any naturopathic lab services?
- Are supplements covered by my plan?
Naturopathic Medicine is Tax Deductable:
Recent Revenue Canada (CRA) Federal legislation now allows business owners to fully tax deduct 100% of their naturopathic healthcare expenses as a business expense using a Health & Welfare Trust. You may be able to write off supplement expenses as well. Call 1-888-880-2266 for more information.
Missed appointments OR No Shows
As a general policy due to the extensive research and preparation that is done for a Naturopathic medical program or service, 50% of the visit or service cost will be charged for cancellations without 24 hours notice, or for No Shows.
Meet your Doctor: 15 minutes
This quick visit is available for you if you are not sure what Naturopathic Medicine is, or not sure if our doctors have worked with your specific condition and would like to check in with them prior to committing to an Initial Visit. Some people use this to meet the doctor and see if they will be a fit for them moving forward. No medical advice or treatment will be administered during this visit, and the visit is kept to 15 minutes.
