Upholding the ACA means upholding your CHOICE and ACCESS to MORE than conventional medicine! Sec. 5101 provides for a NEW national healthcare workforce. One that includes integrative healthcare practices like chiropractic, homeopathy, acupuncture, naturopathy and more. These professions will lower cost and add safe, effective therapeutics to our menu.
State insurance exchanges are mandated to include prevention and wellness in their insurance offerings. Guess who provides TRUE primary prevention AND wellness...the integrative healthcare practioners!
So, step up to the plate, get involved with your state exchange and tell them what you want in your insurance benefits package. You are ALLOWED to speak up. Sec. 2706 of the ACA says that insurance companies CANNOT DISCRIMINATE against providers acting within their scope of practice OR certification.
Be passionate about empowerment!
