Osteopathic treatment is covered by nearly all major insurance plans.
I am an active member of the Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners (OAO). Most private and extended health benefit (EHB) plans cover the cost in whole or part, of osteopathic services specifically provided by OAO members. It is recommended that patients contact their EBH provider to see if they have coverage for osteopathy.
