Health Care Insurance Coverage for Naturopathic Medicine, Homeopathy, Bowen Therapy & the Neuroemotional Technique (NET)

Interested in naturopathic medicine, homeopathy, Bowen therapy, and the neuroemotional technique - but unsure about the insurance coverage available?

Good news. 

In the ever-expanding list of provinces and states in which it is accredited – including British Columbia - naturopathic medicine is covered by virtually all extended medical insurance plans.

Depending on the nature of your insurance plan, you may also be entitled to added coverage under my designations as a homeopath and Bowen therapist.

Additionally, you may be eligible for provincial coverage of naturopathic consultations under MSP.

Those who may be eligible for naturopathic coverage under MSP include: 

Even without explicitly applying for anything, you may be automatically eligible for such MSP naturopathic coverage.

If provided with your PHN (personal health number) and date of birth prior to your initial consultation, I can verify whether you qualify. 

Premium Assistance is the most common route by which patients gain access to naturopathic benefits.

Regular Premium Assistance is generally provided automatically each year in accordance with the most recent tax information.

However, this means that MSP must be informed manually of any major changes in your income or disability status over the past year - which can be done through the Application for Regular Premium Assistance.

Even if you do not qualify for Regular Premium Assistance, you may still be eligible for naturopathic coverage via the Application for Temporary Premium Assistance.

Temporary Premium Assistance allows those who are experiencing current unexpected financial hardship to qualify for naturopathic coverage. 

Additionally, patients who have psychiatric conditions for which they have been hospitalized or are at risk of other serious consequences can qualify for naturopathic benefits through enrolling as Mental Health Clients.

Finally, the At Home Program provides naturopathic benefits to assist the parents of children with severe disabilities.

If you have any questions about your specific naturopathic insurance coverage options, I can be reached by email at andy@drandysomody.com, or by calling 778-805-6655.

Naturopathic Medicine & Homeopathy Testimonials

My stools are more brown and normal, and my hair is less greasy now since the homeopathy and biofeedback.

The itching has gotten a lot less with the Bowen therapy we've done.

The cold sores went away and haven't come back since our first treatment months ago.

G.D., Pitt Meadows, BC

My meniere’s disease, including the vertigo and nausea, went away after I was treated by Dr. Andy’s remedy, and the recurrences have become increasingly less frequent and intense. I've been doing so well that I haven't needed treatment for months!

F.L., Richmond, BC

My daughter had about 6 ear infections in under a year, and was constantly uncomfortable and crying.

Your homeopathic remedy flipped some kind of switch inside her - she was happier almost instantly!

She only had one more infection over the next six months, and hasn't had another in the past year.

Your treatment also really gentle - we'll definitely be coming back to you for our youngest soon!

Brooke T, Delta (Tsawwassen), BC

A root canal I had done a long time ago was done improperly.

My cheek was swollen on one side from a painful abscess in my gum and tooth.

Andy's homeopathic remedy, neuroemotional clearings, and Bowen therapy helped this drain within hours.

I couldn't believe how much better it looked the next day!

I barely ever feel the pain anymore; and if I do, Andy's remedy seems to have made it go away everytime.

A.F., Maple Ridge, BC

Andy's bowen technique cured the laryngitis and acid reflux I used to get for years.

His neuroemotional work (NET) made my cough and depression almost totally cured too.

Kate R, West Vancouver (Caulfield / Horseshoe Bay), BC

I feel blessed to work with such a gifted doctor, whose treatments have been effective in supporting my optimal health.

In my opinion, Dr. Somody's integrity, character and professionalism are beyond reproach and I recommend him wholeheartedly to others.

I first saw Dr. Somody several years ago for physical medical health issues, including frozen shoulder, hip bursa inflammation, stiffness, and pain, TMJ, back pain, and warts.

All of those complaints were cured largely or entirely thanks to Dr. Somody's treatment.

Everything else that has come up since that time - cough, pneumonia, allergies, sinusitis, not to mention emotional concerns - Dr. Somody has treated and healed, naturally and successfully.

Through the treatments, he identified and cured the causes behind each of these issues, allowing them to be healed deeply with his bowen therapy, homeopathic remedies, neuroemotional technique, and other techniques.

I hold Dr. Somody in the highest regard, and had to put in my opinion about his genius and compassion for the human condition.

Anyone who is half conscious could realize in seconds what a remarkable doctor he is.

 

Judith Leroux, North Vancouver (Edgemont Village), BC

 

More Testimonials

The pain in my abdomen, hips, pelvis, back and intestines were there before pregnancy, but they all became 100 times worse during.

The pain was with me constantly, and just got worse as the pregnancy wore on.

Your bowen therapy was a lifesaver.

The pain was at a 9 or 10 out of 10 before the first session, but went down to a 5 or less afterwards.

With every bowen treatment, and your homeopathic remedies and emotional technique as well, the pain decreased more.

I can't say that the birth was completely pain-free, but it was way better than my first, and I'm certain I would've needed heavy-duty drugs if not for the bowen therapy.

C.P., Vancouver (Marpole), BC & Little Rock, Arkansas

My jaw and tooth pains used to be constant, but have gone away almost totally since the homeopathy treatment. The migraines were so intense before that they made me miss work; they're 90-95% better now. My blood pressure is normal for the first time in years too.

A.K., West Vancouver, BC

I can see much better than I have in years thanks to Dr. Andy's homeopathic treatment.

Anna, Vancouver (Dunbar-Southlands), BC

I don't know how but your homeopathic technique and neuroemotional work brought colour to my life again.

The voices stared going away after the first session and I don't feel so numb, dead or ambivalent all the time now.

I'm also not so worried or paranoid and can actually relax and be comfortable around people.

I don't feel so irritable or anxious all the time and I'm even not so clumsy or accident prone now.

B.W., Victoria (Saanich), BC
