Inclusion of Acupuncture in Medicare CDM Scheme

Problem
Australians are denied access to receive Acupuncture from Registered Acupuncturists and Chinese Medicine Practitioners under Medicare's Chronic Disease Management Scheme.
Exclusion of registered Acupuncturists and Chinese Medicine Practitioner in this scheme deemed unfair to both, the Australian public and to the practitioners.
After all, Chinese Medicine is one of 15 health profession recognised and registered under Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

Solution
We urge the policy makers to reconsider their policies where all health professions registered under AHPRA are treated equally and fairly.
