HMO Chiropractic & Acupuncture Plan Overview

As an added benefit, Scripps Health Plan HMO members have coverage for acupuncture and chiropractic coverage.

Scripps Health Plan is working with American Specialty Health Plans of California, Inc. (ASH Plans) to allow members access to their network of over 700 licensed practitioners in San Diego County.
To locate a participating provider and find additional information on chiropractic and acupuncture services, members may contact American Specialty Health at 1-800-678-9133 or by accessing their provider directory online at www.ashlink.com/ash/scrippsHP.

At your appointment, you must present your ID card and pay the applicable copayment to the provider. Members are able to self-refer to providers that are part of the ASH Plans of California network. Should a member's treatment plan require any authorization, the provider will contact American Specialty Health Plan to initiate and obtain authorization for services. To learn more about Prior Authorization requirements for Acupuncture & Chiropractic Benefits, contact American Specialty Health Plan by phone at 1-800-678-9133.

You can also benefit from no claim forms, deductibles or additional paperwork, other than the provider’s usual patient history/documentation forms. The provider will complete and submit all necessary paperwork on your behalf.
