Have you been in an auto accident? We all have…well maybe not all of us, but most of us. Some of us have even experienced an injury that seemed to take forever to get over no matter what doctor you visited or what medication you tried. That is because injuries from automobiles are often traumatic. They occur quickly and with great force. Our fragile soft tissue can’t take the jarring created from a crash. If you know this all to well, you may want to take a look at auto accident acupuncture. Acupuncture can often provide you relief where others have failed. You may even be there already, “I want to try auto accident acupuncture but I am afraid of the cost. Can I afford it?” The simple answer is YES! “But how?”
Your insurance covers auto accident acupuncture and you didn’t even know it!
You have two layers of insurance in Oregon and both cover auto accident acupuncture!
- Auto Accident Acupuncture via PIP: PIP stands for Personal Injury Protection. If you are a resident of Oregon and drive a car, you really should know about PIP. You are required to carry $15,000 of PIP for yourself and the passengers in your car. It will cover you for a year after an accident. The best news ever is that it covers auto accident acupuncture.
- Auto Accident Acupuncture via Affordable Care Act: Even if your auto accident was more than a year ago, you still have auto accident acupuncture insurance. You may still be experiencing headaches, lower back pain, numbness or tingling in your extremities, and other pain. The Affordable Care Act has a clause in it that makes it so that your insurance company must allow you to use acupuncture if you wish. It is a non discrimination clause so that your insurance cannot discriminate between any licensed health care provider. Up in Oregon, we auto accident acupuncture providers are licensed. We qualify!
If you are in an auto accident, don’t delay in contacting a health care professional. Don’t delay in contacting your auto accident acupuncture provider. It will make all the difference
