Considering that the mainstream medical community hasn't completely bought into the benefits of alternative medicine, it makes sense that most health insurance companies usually won't cover the costs of alternative medicine. Sometimes, you might be able to fight with your insurance company until it agrees to partially cover some treatments, but generally, claims on treatments like acupuncture, yoga lessons or dietary supplements will be denied. Sometimes, if you can afford it, it may be worth paying out of pocket for an alternative therapy that you believe is helping you achieve the best heart health. This can get very expensive very quickly, however. The irony is that the cost of alternative medicines is typically lower than the cost of conventional medicine, but when your insurance company pays for you to see a cardiologist, it ends up costing you less than if you were to go to an acupuncturist and pay out of pocket.
