Medicare Coverage of Homeopathy


Type of Medical Service

Homeopathy (homeopathic medicine)

What's Covered

Neither Medicare Part B nor a Medicare Part C Medicare Advantage plan covers homeopathy.

What Medicare Pays

Neither Medicare Part B nor a Medicare Part C Medicare Advantage plan pays anything toward the cost of homeopathic care.

Important: Regardless of the rules regarding any particular type of care, in order for Medicare Part A, Medicare Part B, or a Medicare Part C plan to provide coverage, the care must meet two basic requirements:

  • The care must be "medically necessary." This means that it must be ordered or prescribed by a licensed physician or other authorized medical provider, and that Medicare (or a Medicare Part C plan) agrees that the care is necessary and proper. For help getting your care covered, see FAQ: How Can I Increase the Odds That Medicare Will Cover My Medical Service?

  • The care must be performed or delivered by a healthcare provider who participates in Medicare.

Homeopathy is good way of the treatment in medical line in Asia now a days. It has less side effects as compare to Ealopathic medicines. Its results are very slow but perfect. I always prefer homeopathic. <a href="http://adamprowse.com.au/">Fitness Club Maitland</a>
