All therapists are Registered Acupuncturists (R. Ac). If your plan includes acupuncture, our treatments are most likely but not necessarily covered. Each insurance plan is different. It is your responsibility to find out from your organization or insurance provider if our services are covered before booking an appointment.
All of our appointments with the exception of Chinese Medicine Herbal Medicine will include Acupuncture. If for any reason you did not receive Acupuncture during an appointment we cannot bill it as such. For more details on insurance coverage, head over to the FAQ section of Rates and Prices.
On April 1st, 2013, The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care passed a bill in which acupuncture became recognized as a Regulated health profession in Ontario.
In order to legally provide acupuncture in Ontario, R. Ac’s must go through a process of exams, background checks in addition to an extensive Chinese Medicine post secondary education. This ensures patient safety.
All therapists working at Acupuncture Center Toronto are members in good standing with the CTCMPAO. The CTCMPAO is the governing body which dictates the laws and practice of acupuncture in Ontario. Each practitioner carries a designation number required to practice in the province.
