Alternative health coverage through American Specialty Health Plans is automatically included when you participate in one of the CAPE/Blue Shield Point-of-Service medical plans. This benefit is available without a referral from your physician and includes chiropractic and acupuncture services.

With ASHP, you have direct access to more than 2,200 credentialed chiropractors and nearly 700 credentialed acupuncturists servicing California. ASHP is designed for your convenience. You simply pay your co-payment at each visit; there are no deductibles to meet or claim forms to fill out.

Members may simply call a Participating Chiropractor or Participating Acupuncturist to schedule an initial examination. After the initial examination, the Chiropractor or Acupuncturist must obtain pre-authorization for any additional Covered Services to a Member.
