If you’ve ever felt the invigorating effects of a TCM massage, you’d probably agree it’s an experience that revitalizes your body and calms your mind. Many Singaporeans enjoy this holistic therapy, and it’s not surprising. But what if we told you that your insurance might cover TCM massage expenses? Let’s unravel the truth about TCM massage and insurance claims in Singapore.

Insurance for TCM in Singapore: The Current Scenario

Insurance companies in Singapore have started acknowledging the rising popularity and benefits of TCM, and as a result, some providers now offer coverage for TCM treatments. However, the extent of the coverage differs among providers and plans.

While consultations and certain TCM treatments like acupuncture may be covered, it’s less common for insurance plans to cover TCM massage. That’s mainly because TCM massage, while promoting wellness, is often categorized as a ‘wellness service’ rather than a ‘medical treatment’.

However, if the TCM massage is prescribed by a registered TCM practitioner like TCM Solutions One for a specific medical condition, some insurance plans may consider it ‘medically necessary’ and provide coverage.
