Kaiser Permanente Health Care

Complementary and alternative medicine services and coverage

Kaiser Permanente provides options for you to access complementary and alternative care services — acupuncture, naturopathy,  chiropractic, and massage therapy. Coverage varies based on your health plan and benefits.

If your plan does not cover these services, you still have access to the Complementary Choices discount program.

What services are covered?

  • Most of our plans cover a limited number of acupuncture, naturopathy, and chiropractic visits without requiring a referral from your primary care doctor.
  • Massage therapy services require a referral from your doctor if he or she determines the services are medically necessary.
  • Your doctor may also provide referrals to acupuncturists or naturopathic physicians if he or she determines the care is medically necessary.
  • For services that your health plan covers without requiring a referral, we contract with a network of chiropractors, naturopaths, acupuncturists, and massage therapists. All of our contracted providers meet both our credentialing standards and state or local licensing requirements.

Use our provider directory to find someone in our contracted network.

Provider Directory

Tips for using the directory:

  • Select your health plan and enter the correct location in the search area.
  • Click on the appropriate boxes: Medical Care > Specialty Care > Chiropractic and Alternative Care.
  • You can narrow your search results using "Refine Your Results" on the listing page.
