Benefit Highlight – Alternative Care
The CAM Advantage
The dedication to whole-istic health and well-being in all areas of life is what makes Control Alt Med stand out from the other programs designed to just offer discounts. That is why we chose Alternative Care as the Benefit Highlight in our welcome edition. Each quarter we will highlight just one of the many benefits. The majority of our members express interested in maintaining optimal health, often by non-traditional means – we love that! And that is also why we provide information on healing and well-being options from around the world as a result of our partnership with eSecondOpinion, in every newsletter (check out the World of Solutions section below).
Sadly, alternative care modalities are the options most often left out of the typical insurance offerings. Included in every Control Alt Med package, this benefit will save you 10% to 30% on your health and wellness needs with over 40 specialties and 43,000 practitioners nationwide. Whether you want to reduce stress, relieve migraines or heal more serious maladies, alternative medicine can help. Some options include:
- Naturopathic Medicine, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture, Hypnotherapy
- Massage Therapy, Nutritional Counseling, Biofeedback, Reflexology
- Exercise and movement specialties such as Yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates
And although sometimes mixed in, we have another benefit dedicated to Chiropractors with even greater discounts. We are currently working with our contract negotiators to build up the number and types of Alternative Care providers, so if you know some great ones, let us know!
