I've mentioned a few times that I'm interested in trying acupuncture for IF, but I've never actually gone because it's expensive and we just don't have the extra cash right now.
Well, today I checked out my new insurance benefits and found out that acupuncture is COVERED. I have to have a referral from my primary doctor and it has to be determined to be "medically necessary" though. I'm not sure what that means for me. I know my doctor will give me a referral if I ask for it, but how can acupuncture ever really be "medically necessary"? And what actually counts as medically necessary?
I guess I will just have to go to the doctor and ask her my questions. At least I have a little hope that I can try it.
