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

Back & sleep both are very good now - I don't feel pain or tight muscles any more! Mind is less anxious and worried too, and eyes don't blink without control as before.

Christine R., North Vancouver (Pemberton Heights), B.C.

I've had three heart attacks, and my doctor told me I probably wouldn't survive another.

When he recommended Dr. Somody, I was afraid I would be put on a strict diet and exercise regime, or have to take lots of supplements.

But Dr. Somody just gave me one homeopathic remedy to take once, did some gentle Bowen therapy, and went back into the past causes behind my heart problems with his neuro-emotional releases.

I first noticed that I was less stressed in pressured situations, like at work or with my children.

I stopped getting the painful pressure in the chest, and could exercise and enjoy life again.

My blood pressure and weight have both dropped without me having to do anything with diet or exercise.

Although I think I am eating better now, since I seem to have a better internal sense of what is good for me now.

B.K., Quebec City, Quebec

I used to have an constantly inflamed sore throat, as well as itchy, irritating skin problems.

These all got better after your homeopathic remedy and Bowen therapy.

It took a little longer for the vitiligo to respond, but it's no more than half as noticeable now than it was before.

Your neuroemotional technique and biofeedback seemed to particularly help it.

C.R., Sunshine Coast (Sechelt / Gibsons), BC

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

Years ago, I slipped in my bathroom, fell and fractured my tailbone.

I think it got worse after childbirth too.

Then I injured my shoulder and got whiplash from a car accident, and hurt my hip running.

The combination of Andy's homeopathic remedy, neuroemotional releases, and Bowen therapy helped my whole body feel better.

Now I don't get pain any more when I walk, run, or drive.

And I don't seem to get so easily injured either.

Diane B, Richmond (Steveston), BC

I visited Dr. Andy for depression and after a thorough interview and muscle resistence testing I was prescribed a remedy and given a Bowen treatment.

I was literally a new person the morning after the treatment and felt ready to tackle the world again.

Dr. Andy is sympathetic and intuitive as well as knowledgeable.

His intense desire to help his patients and deep compassion brought about these quality results.

I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Andy to my friends and family.

Pam Johnson, Vancouver (Kerrisdale), B.C.

My only reason for trying Dr. Andy's treatment was to help me quit smoking.

If that had been all that he did, I would have already been satisfied.

Needless to say, I was pretty blown away when the homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional releases not only helped me quit smoking (going on 1 year now) but also made my stools better (less painful, blood and frequent).

The Bowen therapy also seemed to make made me less depressed in winter, and helped straighten the curvature in my spine.

I also get hardly any pain during my flow now, and the flow isn't as crazy heavy as it was.

A.P., Victoria (Saanich), BC

His speech impediment and drooling are not so much now since the homeopathy and the biofeedback.

He seems better able to concentrate - his teachers have even noticed a difference, and he's doing better at school.

A.D., New Westminster, 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

I had been living with prostate cancer for months, and the symptoms just got to the point that I had to do something.

The pills that my regular doctor gave me just made me dizzy and tired.

So I went looking for natural alternatives. 

After getting lukewarm results from the acupuncturist and chiropractor, I decided to then see Dr. Somody.

The homeopathic remedy and bowen therapy treatment he gave me made my urination more controlled and regular.

I went from having to get up four times a night to pee to being able to sleep through the night.

My eyes and hearing have also improved, and don't have to live with that annoying chronic cough now either.

R.L., Chilliwack, BC
