One question I often receive is whether I am recognised to provide BUPA acupuncture. And yes, I am recognised by BUPA as a provider of acupuncture!
(BUPA don’t provide any training, guidelines or accreditation for acupuncture itself. However, depending on your policy, they usually provide some health fund coverage for acupuncture provided by a properly qualified acupuncturist.)
Can I get BUPA acupuncture from any acupuncturist?
BUPA apply stringent criteria before they will recognise an acupuncturist as properly qualified.
Jessica has been assessed as eligible for recognition, and has BUPA provider numbers for her practice.
Meanwhile, if you want to start checking whether other individual acupuncturists are covered, you can check with BUPA.
How well qualified is Jessica?
When you visit Jessica, you will have the reassurance of receiving treatment from a well qualified and experienced practitioner, fully trained in traditional acupuncture.
She obtained her Licentiate in Acupuncture in 2005 after three years study at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in the UK. She is a member of the British Acupuncture Council.
She moved to Perth in 2017. She is registered with AHPRA (you can see her registration listing here). She is a member of AACMA (you can search for her here).
Will BUPA cover my treatments with Jessica?
Your BUPA acupuncture coverage will depend on the policy you hold with BUPA. Give them a call to check.
Will other health funds cover my treatments with Jessica?
Jessica has pretty comprehensive recognition from Australian health funds. For instance she is recognised by AHM, ARHG, Australian Unity, BUPA, CBHS, GU Health, HCF, and Medibank.
So, yes, you should be covered, if your policy allows it. You can contact your provider to check your eligibility.
Are there limits on how much I can claim from BUPA?
It depends on your policy. Call BUPA or your other health provider to check your coverage.
