Chiro/Acupuncture

Where to go for chiropractic, acupuncture, and therapeutic massage care.

SCAN offers a routine acupuncture, chiropractic and/or therapeutic massage benefit through American Specialty Health (ASH)* for most plans.

This is a self-referred benefit, which means you don’t need a doctor’s referral to receive these services. Just schedule your appointment, show your SCAN member ID card and receive an exam. Be sure to choose an ASH provider that contracts with SCAN.

During your first appointment, the ASH provider will talk with you and do an exam to find out what's wrong. If you need more than one appointment, the ASH provider will submit a treatment plan to ASH. Once approved, you can schedule additional appointments and begin your treatment. 

Check your Evidence of Coverage to see exactly what your plan includes.
