If you have NYSHIP, Medical Massage is a covered benefit.

NYSHIP, the New York State Health Insurance Program, is a unique Empire Plan designed specifically for New York State’s Public Employees and Employers.

This Empire Plan pays for covered  hospital services, physicians’ bills,  prescription drugs, and various other medical treatments including massage therapy.

How it works:
1. NYSHIP covers massage therapy as an out-of-network benefit. Once you meet your out-of-pocket deductible ($1250), your massage sessions can be covered by insurance.

2. In order to begin, ask your doctor for a prescription for massage therapy. The prescription must include a billable ICD-10 code(s).

Feel free to CONTACT ME with any questions you may have.
