Acupuncturists Join Empire Plan Network

Good news for Empire Plan participants in 2019; the Empire Plan participating provider network is being expanded to include licensed acupuncturists.

This is a new endeavor, so it will take time for the medical carrier to develop this network.   The network will continue to expand throughout 2019. Visits to network providers are subject to the applicable office visit copayment.

To locate a network acupuncturist, enrollees can visit the online provider directory at or call 1-877-7-NYSHIP (1-877-769-7447) and press or say 1 for the Medical/Surgical Program.
