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

I'd had ingrown toenails and fingernails for my whole life, but they were getting worse, and it was getting to be a major problem.

They'd get infected, and I'd need to keep getting antibiotics to clear them up.

It was painful and was kind of disgusting and pissed me off.

Your homeopathic therapy and the bowen releases made my nails seem less fragile and breakable.

Over the next couple of weeks, I noticed that the infections hadn't happened so much and weren't so bad.

I appreciated that I didn't have to stop running or playing tennis.

When you asked me about my jaw after the 2nd or 3rd treatment, I realized that I hadn't been grinding or having any jaw pain for weeks.

D.S., Port Coquitlam, BC

I feel like my old self again! My energy is better that it's been in years, and I haven't got sick once since I started seeing you.

Charlotte R., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

I had given up on the conventional medical doctors, and was going crazy trying to find something to cure this debilitating bladder pain.

I was pretty resistant to Dr. Andy's homeopathic treatment and all neuroemotional techniques - it's pretty strange.

But I do feel much better now, so I know that it did something good.

And not just with my cystitis ... my sleep and energy have improved too.

Diane W, Surrey (North Surrey / Bolivar Heights), BC

I want to take the time to say how much I appreciate your excellent work in improving my health.

There was something unsettled in my gastrointestinal system that my family doctor wasn't able to fix and I was suffering daily.

In less then 6 months of being in your care I was feeling better than ever.

Not only were my specific problems taken care of but I've also noticed that my overall physical and mental health are greatly improved.

I recommend your services to any of my friends, family or co-workers who have health complaints.

Colin Aspinall, Port Coquitlam, BC

I feel like a new man thanks to the Bowen treatments!

No more pain, weakness, stiffness and restriction in my knee or shoulder.

The ganglion seems to have gotten a fair bit better too - at least it's stopped hurting.

Thanks, Andy.

James L., New Westminster, BC

I truly believe that, without Andy's homeopathic remedy and the neuroemotional work we did, I wouldn't have come back from my thyroid cancer.

I've been cancer-free for almost a decade now.

I also used to have to avoid cell phones and X-rays because they would make me feel like crap and affect my bowels, but am not so sensitive to radiation now thanks to the homeopathy.

James L, Delta (North Delta), BC

I have been so fortunate to be one of Dr. Somody's patients and have to say that he is one of the most competent people I know.

I had painful stiffness, swelling, and arthritic pain in my hand joints.

And then it changed, and went to my tendons.

I would get throbbing pain in my fingers at night, I couldn't bend my fingers or work properly.

I also would get these little knobs or growths on the joints.

The joints would get really inflammed and red.

Some doctors once told me it was gout or a type of arthritis related to psoriasis.

I also had psoriasis that caused painful cracking and flaking skin on my hands.

Dr. Somody's homeopathic remedy and other naturopathic approaches made all these much better.

For instance after the first few days I could already notice the joints were less swollen and painful.

After a couple of months the joints, skin and tendons were at least 50% better.

They just kept getting better over the next few months and other than a rare flare-up I don't have these things any more.

I haven't had to see Dr. Somody or any other doctor again in years and I consider myself cured.

If it wasn't for him I would probably still be suffering from these problems or even unable to work.

 

Alex, North Vancouver, BC
