Hello All, We are sending this message as notification that L&I received enough applications to fill the acupuncture pilot. We will no longer be accepting applications for the length of the pilot, and ask that no applications be submitted.
Due to the high interest in participating in the acupuncture pilot, all qualified applicants who submitted applications by close of business on August 21st will be accepted into the pilot. Processing of applications is ongoing, and letters will be sent to accepted providers in the coming weeks.
While we know that excitement for this new treatment is high, we would again like to stress that no acupuncture treatment for injured workers is covered or reimbursed until the beginning of the pilot on October 1st. Any bills submitted prior to this date will not be paid.
For any remaining questions regarding the pilot, please refer to the webpage at www.lni.wa.gov/acupuncturepilot
