Is my visit covered by health insurance?
Extended health care plans (i.e, private plans, usually through your employer) may cover naturopathic care. Most plans pay 80%-100% of the cost of visits but make sure you clarify coverage with your benefits manager. Provincial subsidies for naturopathic medicine were cut by the Liberal government on January 1, 2002. At present there is no MSP coverage available for visits to an ND unless you are on premium assistance.
