Good News from Medicare -- Benefits for Naturopathic Medicine
Medicare Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage, now covers naturopathic doctors in some of its plans. Aetna, Cigna, Humana, Regence and United Healthcare/AARP, are some of the companies we’ve seen offering these benefits.
I have a special interest in helping to provide quality health care for our 65+ community and would love the opportunity to work with you and/or your friends and family members. My treatment areas of focus include body work, nutrition and creating lasting healthy habits. This toolbox is powerful against osteoporosis, hypertension, diabetes, chronic pain, anxiety and depression, just to give a few examples. NDs are familiar with and can prescribe many medications and our treatment approach will aim to complement the work you are already doing with your primary care physician.
Hopefully this expansion of Medicare is just the start of increasing seniors’ access to naturopathic medicine! Please call our office with questions — (206) 629-5180 — or visit the New Patient tab of our website to schedule an appointment with me, Dr. Tausend.
