12/01/2015 | Priority Health

Priority Health’s MyPriority® Holistic, through a partnership with American Specialty Health Networks (ASH), provides coverage for acupuncture to treat a medical condition and medical massage services in addition to traditional care as well as free virtual visit care and cash rewards for staying active.

“This product supports the growing number of people who are turning to holistic care to support their health alongside traditional medicine,” said Joan Budden, chief marketing officer of Priority Health. “Creating access to this type of care furthers our work to help improve the health and lives of the people we serve.”

According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, nearly 38 percent of adults and 12 percent of children are using some form of holistic medicine in the United States.

MyPriority Holistic is a plan, offered on and off the Health Insurance Marketplace (, which provides members with immediate access to medically necessary acupuncture and massage services using ASH’s network of specialty service providers. Members are eligible for up to 20 visits a year at an approved ASH facility for a $30 copayment.

Priority Health members will also have access to an ExerciseRewardsTM program. Members can earn up to $120 annually based on their level of activity, as well as discounts at fitness facilities.

“Holistic services are a key part of preventive care,” Budden said. “Prevention heads off bigger and often more costly medical issues later on. By providing these services to our members we continue our commitment to innovative services to help them be their healthiest.”
