Private Health Insurers

Judy is a registered acupuncture provider for AVIVA, Simply Health, WPA, Pruhealth and CS Healthcare. Other insurers such as AXA PPP may cover the costs of your acupuncture treatment if your policy covers it and your private doctor or consultant refers you to Judy. So it’s worth asking. Usually you will need to pay for your acupuncture treatment yourself and reclaim it back from your insurer. Most insurers set either:

  • an upper limit on the amount you can reclaim per treatment and the number of treatments you can receive over a period of time, or
  • a cap on the total amount you can claim back for acupuncture treatments over a set period eg a year
