Medi-Cal Acupuncture Restored

Yesterday, the California Department of Health Care Services announced that acupuncture services will be restored as Medi-Cal benefits, effective for dates of service on or after July 1, 2016.
The announcement and likely rates were posted to the DHCS/Medi-Cal site

While reimbursement for acupuncture has been restored, rates remain low across the full spectrum of Medi-Cal benefits, including acupuncture. A recent report by the Bay Area Council Economic Institute ranked California as the 47th lowest state for fee-for-service reimbursement.  

Acupuncture was eliminated as an optional benefit under Medi-Cal during 2009 budget cutting.
