Our Care Plans provide bigger discounts the more services you purchase. 

Care Plan Savings

In order to save you money, and encourage you to use our services proactively and preventively, the way they were meant to be used, we have decreased the cost of our services as you increase the number of treatments.

We have 3 treatment types available in Plans:

  • Acupuncture – you pay $49/treatment instead of $55.
  • Bodywork (many different types, and several different practitioners – you might want to try them all!)
  • Plant-Based Nutrition Consults – including education, diabetes and cancer prevention and reversal, permanent weight-loss through delicious food and lifestyle changes.
 

 

How Plans are Packaged: 

Plans containing acupuncture are bundled in 6 treatments 

Plans containing bodywork and/or Plant-Based Nutrition Consults without acupuncture are bundled in 2, 4 or 6 treatments. This allows for patients to be introduced to these therapies, or to achieve specific short- or long-term goals.

Expiration of Discounted Visits (Care Plans or Pre-Paid Visits): These visits must be used up before they expire. Any visits bought on or before October 31, 2022 expire on December 15, 2022. We’ll contact you before the expiration date with options to get a refund, transfer your package to another person, or have us donate the value of what remains to the Compassionate Care Fund (see below). Plans that expire without instructions from you will be donated as decided by the practice.

Note: Refunds and donations amounts will be calculated as the total paid less the undiscounted price for each visit already used.

New to alternative care?

Not quite ready to jump in with a Care Plan yet?

That’s okay! Try our 
Taste of Wellness

Take a taste of Acupuncture, Bodywork or Plant-based Nutrition Consults – up to 3 sessions (or more) at the out-of-plan rate.

Then, if you decide you’d like to purchase a Care Plan, we’ll apply the price difference of up to your last 3 sessions, and credit you the difference between what you paid, and what they would have cost in plan and credit that toward the price of your selected Care Plan!

Example:
 – Out-of-plan acupuncture sessions cost $55. 
 – In the Acupuncture 15 Care Plan, acupuncture sessions cost $42 dollars each.
– After you’ve done, say,  2 sessions, you decide to commit to support your wellness with a Care Plan and save money at the same time.
– Then, when you buy your Acupuncture 15 Care Plan, you tell us how many Out-of-Plan sessions you’ve had (up to 3), in this case 2, and we’ll credit you the difference for your “tasting” sessions to the total cost of your new Care Plan – our way making it easier for newbies to try before they commit to a whole series.
– In this case $55-$42=$13/session * 2 sessions = $26. An Acupuncture 15 Care Plan sells for $630, so you get your next 15 sessions for $630-$26=$604.

Compassionate Care Fund

Why is CAMA also called: Compassionate Alternative Medicine Associates?

We have available a Compassionate Care Fund (CCF) for anyone who needs assistance paying for acupuncture or nutrition services.

The goal of the Compassionate Care Fund is to continue CAMA’s mission of making affordable health care available to our community.  

It gives the client the option of paying a discounted amount for their care.  CAMA will pay the balance that is needed to cover expenses from this fund, so we ask clients to pay as much as they can afford per visit so that it leaves funds available for others.

How it works:

  • A client may use the CCF if they cannot pay the full amount for the service.
  • As with all clients, new CCF clients are required to pay a one-time administration fee of $20 on the first visit.
  • CCF clients pay for one appointment in advance, at whatever level they choose between $35 and $50. i.e. if they choose $40, they must “deposit” $40 which is then held as their “missed visit deposit.”
  • If the client is a no-show or late cancel, they forfeit the entire amount of the pre-paid visit, and have to pay for the next 2 appointments on their next visit.
  • Clients of CAMA are invited to use the Compassionate Care if in need, or contribute to the Compassionate Care Fund if they are able.
  • Clients whose Care Plans expire have the option of donating their balance to the CCF.
  • Essentially, an acupuncture client needs a minimum of $90 to get started at CAMA ($35+$35+$20), and $35 for subsequent visits.   We invite clients to pay above the minimum if they can afford to, to leave funds available for others.
  • The Compassionate Care Fund will pay the balance of the cost of the treatments, as long as there are funds available.

We are committed to keeping our services affordable and accessible in 3 ways:

Low Cost Treatments: Our acupuncture visits are $55, which is 35% lower than the national average cost for acupuncture
Care Plans: Our acupuncture, massage and whole foods nutrition counselling services are offered at substantial discounts;
Compassionate Care Fund: If needed, this fund is available to make up the difference between what you can afford, and the cost of our services.
