Reimbursement of Acupuncture Treatments

If you were injured in a traffic accident, the SAAQ may reimburse acupuncture treatments.

What you should know

You will be reimbursed under these 3 conditions:

  • the treatments are related to the accident and medically required
  • the treatments were prescribed by a physician
  • the treatments were given by a member of the Ordre des acupuncteurs du Québec

We may deny or end the reimbursement of treatments where they no longer improve your physical condition.

Reimbursable amounts

At a private clinic

We reimburse a maximum of $58 per treatment.

At home

If the nature of your injuries requires you to receive acupuncture treatments at home, we reimburse a maximum of $67 per treatment.

Claiming reimbursement from the SAAQ

Expenses are reimbursed on presentation of the following documents:

  • the prescription

Remember to write your claim number on both these documents.
