Did you know that your Platinum-marketed policy provides benefits for many physician-prescribed alternative care treatments? In addition to wellness benefits, such as screenings and diagnostic testing, you can receive benefits when you seek care outside a traditional physician’s office.
A study done by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health found that approximately 4 in 10 adults in the U.S. use alternative healthcare methods. Furthermore, these Americans spend over $33 million dollars on alternative treatments, making up 11.2 percent of total out-of-pocket health expenditures in the U.S.1
Platinum Supplemental Insurance understands that adequate care for your family’s health can take you places outside of a hospital or physician’s office. In fact, your physician may instruct you to seek an alternative location, like a yoga studio, nutritionist or a therapeutic massage therapist. As part of their wellness benefits, many policies marketed by Platinum include benefits for alternative care methods as prescribed by a physician, including yoga, meditation, Tai Chi and acupuncture, among others. This means you can save even more on out-of-pocket costs when it comes to your family’s health and wellness.
