Recognize Acupuncturist as Healthcare Providers (signature needed by 2/10)

针灸是我们中华文明的一个奇葩,很多老美也钟爱针灸;但是美国的Medicare­并不cover针灸,这给大家造成了额外的开支和不必要的麻烦。针灸师们向白宫提交了­提案,要求Medicare涵盖针灸。要通过此提案,需要在二月十日前征得约26,0­00人投票支持。敬请大家在百忙当中,拿出几分钟时间到白宫网上投票支持,廣為散發。

We got 10,000 votes almost. Did you forward to your friends?

Despite overwhelming evidence of the positive impact acupuncturist have on patient health, they are not recognized as healthcare providers under the Social Security Act and, therefore, cannot be paid by Medicare for therapy management . The Social Security Act does recognize other healthcare professionals such as dieticians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurse midwives, and clinical social workers.

By changing the compensation structure allowed under Medicare, we can ensure that patients have access to the medical expertise of Acupuncturist. Studies have shown that when an Acupuncturist is directly involved in patient care for pain management and other issues, the patient recovers quicker with less medication required.
