Federal Employee Plan (FEP) Retroactive Change to Massage Therapist Services

Effective Jan. 1, 2014, the Affordable Care Act mandates that insurers shall not discriminate
against:

• Provider participation under the plan
• Coverage against any healthcare provider acting under the scope of the provider’s license
• Certification under applicable state law

Based on this change, FEP will no longer exclude services provided by massage therapists when
billed and supervised by an MD, DO, DC, or PT within the scope of their licensure, and as part of a
documented treatment plan.

This change is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2014. This change supersedes our June 2013 notification in
which we notified contracted and non-contracted Alaska chiropractors that massage therapy
services were not covered for FEP members if rendered by a massage therapist.
