The Alt. Med. Doctor Will See You Now

Record #:
Each year Americans spend over $27 million of their own money on nontraditional medical treatments, including acupuncture, homeopathy, and chiropractic therapies. This trend has not been lost on health insurers. Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina was the first insurer in the state to develop a plan called Alt Med Blue. Several other state HMOs have since added an alt med component to their programs.
