As demand for complementary medicine increases and its beneficial effects become more widely recognized, more and more private health insurance companies are offering cover for acupuncture. 

Each private health insurance sets its own criteria for payment of claims for acupuncture treatment and many approve treatment by British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) members. Policy details vary and although some health insurance companies require a signed referral to the acupuncturist from either a GP or a consultant, there are many policies that do not require referrals.

Below is a list of private health insurance companies that approve BAcC members.  It is not an exhaustive list, so please contact your insurance company and ask whether your policy covers acupuncture and if they approve treatments by BAcC members.
