Boeing Employee Naturopathic Insurance Coverage

New Coverage for Naturopathic Physicians

Most Boeing medical plan changes related to health care reform have already been communicated in your annual enrollment materials. However, one new change has just been confirmed, and it is not reflected in those materials.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2014, a number of Boeing medical plans will begin to cover naturopathic physicians (NDs) for certain services such as office visits. The plan will pay benefits only for services that are otherwise covered by the plan and fall within the scope of the naturopath’s license or certification under the law in your state.

Some Boeing medical plans already provide this coverage (for example, the Selections and Select Network plans in Washington state and the Advantage+ health plan), and those plans will continue to provide that coverage. This coverage will also be provided for the first time under the plans listed below effective Jan. 1, 2014. If your plan is not listed and you would like more information, please call Boeing TotalAccess at 866-473-2016, enter your BEMSID and follow the prompts.
