Does "Care Credit" or any other type of health care credit pay cover hypnotherapy?

They say they cover "weight loss," but does that include hypnosis?

Answer on Does "Care Credit" or any other type of health care credit pay cover hypnotherapy?

Most of the answer would depend on where you want to redeem them. For example, there are some "regular clinics" where they have alternative services available where they could apply various types of insurance, FlexPlan dollars, or other "non-cash payments" to any of their alternative treatments. However, there are some smaller offices (whether it be Chiropractic, massage, or any of the same services that the other clinics offer) where they aren't offered as an option to pay based on the restrictions of the payment options. Sometimes it depends on how the clinic/office/hospital is registered, but sometimes it depends on if the clinic/office/whatever decides to not accept the payment options (as some don't want to bother with the paperwork).

If it's a sole practitioner or hypnosis is the only thing offered, you probably won't be able to use "Care Credits" to pay, but you could always call the practitioner and ask if that will be an option to pay. Good luck and I hope I helped!
