CAM providers need to be fairly compensated by American Specialty Health

This petition had 155 supporters

Upon examination of the current contract being proposed by American Specialty Health who administers Cigna benefit plans for acupuncture, chiropractic, massage therapy, and naturopathic services it appears that CPT/compensation limits interfere with our ability to appropriately serve our patients. 

The limits currently placed on E/M codes, Adjunctive Therapies, Acupuncture, Massage therapy, and Chiropractic Adjustments do not reasonably reflect the time an average practitioner spends with a patient. Currently the fee scale and time limit interfere with our ability to see patients and make reasonable clinical decisions.

We are concerned the current contract encroaches on our scope of practice and puts our patients at risk of receiving negligent care caused by 'rushed' visits and incomplete therapies. 

All CAM providers deserve to be fairly compensated. All insured patients should receive the care they pay for.
