Did you know that Veterans can receive acupuncture for free? The Veteran's Choice Act provides funding for Veterans to receive care outside the VA and this includes full coverage for acupuncture services!
Veterans use acupuncture for a broad variety of issues, but the most common is for pain relief from conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, knee pain, arthritis pain, headaches and migraines, shoulder pain, other joint pains, and even pains caused by autoimmune disorders, fibromyalgia or Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).
Many also seek acupuncture for general wellness issues including menstrual and menopausal issues, digestive troubles, allergies, asthma, sexual dysfunction, dizziness, vertigo, and many others.
The best place to start is to get a preauthorization from your VA. This gets the process started so that you can start getting help from your condition very quickly. If you need guidance, please contact our office at 720-541-8458.
