Stopping discrimination by insurance companies against massage therapy

According to the Integrated Health Care Consortium, 47 members of Congress submitted a letter to house speaker Pelosi urging any final health care reform bill to include a provision preventing discrimination against complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) providers.  Currently, many insurance companies do not cover care by this large section of the health care community which includes massage therapists, naturopathic physicians, acupuncturists, and much more.

The Integrated Health Care Consortium says that many in Congress want “to ensure that the final health care reform bill reflects the importance of preserving patients’ access to providers of their choice, and to preventing discrimination by insurance companies against entire classes of health care providers like CAM professionals.”

An urgent request has been sent to anyone who supports this action to contact their Congressional representative with this simple form.
