The National Guild endorses U.S. House of Representative Judy Chu’s “Acupuncture for Heroes and Seniors Act, H.R. 3849“. California NGAOM members have worked with Rep. Chu since the 1990’s. H.R. 3849 permits members of the uniformed services access to qualified acupuncturist services without the requirement of a referral and requires that acupuncture services be offered to all veterans. The bill also ensures that qualified acupuncturist services are covered by Medicare so that seniors have another effective, and cost-effective, treatment option available to them.
We hope that everyone who supports the extension of acupuncture services to all Americans will sign the petition in support of this bill, post it to your practice and personal Facebook and Twitter accounts, and encourage you family, friends and patients to do the same. A full grass roots effort could well move this bill forward. Will you take 2 minutes to do your part?
