Will my insurance cover Chinese herbal therapy?
At this point, probably not. Although there is good scientific evidence for the efficacy of Chinese herbal medicine, the scientific studies have been primarily conducted in Asian countries. Government agencies in this country have not funded scientific studies on Chinese herbal medicine, and Western pharmaceutical companies have no incentive to conduct such studies. There are no insurance codes that apply to Chinese herbs, and without a code, a treatment cannot be billed.
