Alternative Healthcare Benefits Added to CareFirst and Kaiser Plans

By Sarah Canadine Bayne

AU faculty and staff now have the option to use alternative health care benefits as part of their CareFirst and Kaiser Permanente coverage.

Acupuncture and chiropractic coverage are now available for an office visit copay. Before adding this feature, faculty and staff were able to access this coverage but only received discounts on the costs.

Increasingly people are turning to alternative health care to enhance their recovery. More employers offer these benefits in their health plans.

AU continues demonstrates its commitment to provide market-competitive benefits for faculty and staff.
