Will Medicare pay for acupuncture?

Both Medicare Parts A and B do not provide coverage for acupuncture. They only provide coverage for medically necessary services. If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, this might provide coverage for acupuncture. For individuals who prefer to have acupuncture services covered, they should enroll into an applicable Medicare Advantage plan.
