ChooseHealthy™ complementary care discounts
The ChooseHealthy program provides discounts on a variety of complementary and alternative care resources. You can take advantage of reduced rates to help you stay healthy.
It's important to know that the ChooseHealthy program is not insurance. It is offered in addition to your health plan coverage as an extra resource for you.
Some Kaiser Permanente health plans include coverage for complementary or alternative care, such as acupuncture, chiropractic services, and massage therapy. When you use the ChooseHealthy program to access care, services are not covered by your plan benefits.
Before you use the ChooseHealthy discount program, please check your coverage to see if your costs would be lower by using your plan benefits. Coverage varies by plan. To check your coverage, sign in, or call Member Services at 1-888-874-1620.

What services are covered under plan benefits?
- Coverage varies by plan. Check your coverage of complementary care by signing in to your account or calling Member Services 1-888-874-1620.
- Most of our non-Medicare Advantage plans cover a limited number of acupuncture, naturopathy, and chiropractic visits without requiring a referral from your primary care doctor.
- Massage therapy services require a referral from your doctor if he or she determines the services are medically necessary.
- Your doctor may also provide referrals to acupuncturists or naturopathic physicians if he or she determines the care is medically necessary.
- For services that your health plan covers without requiring a referral, we contract with a network of chiropractors, naturopaths, acupuncturists, and massage therapists. All of our contracted providers meet both our credentialing standards and state or local licensing requirements. Use our provider directory to find someone in our contracted network.
