It has come to our attention that OTIP (Ontario Teachers Insurance Plan) no longer provides acupuncture coverage for teachers.
Patients must advocate for their extended health care coverage, and continue to receive acupuncture and other complementary therapies, and demonstrate the importance of this very important benefit. Patients are their most powerful advocates, even more so than practitioners.
Please use the following letter, by copying and pasting onto your clinic letterhead, and distribute to your patients who were previously covered for acupuncture under OTIP (Credit to Mario Amato, R.TCMP for drafting the letter).
Let them know that they demand acupuncture back as part of their benefits!
