Support H.R. 3849, the Acupuncture for Heroes and Seniors Act

Support H.R. 3849, the Acupuncture for Heroes and Seniors Act. The bill, introduced on October 28, 2015, permits members of the uniformed services access to qualified, professional acupuncture 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 medically necessary and cost-effective treatment option available to them, delivered by highly trained professionals. 

The use of acupuncture to minimize the necessity of opioids for pain reduction has been repeatedly validated by clinical researchers. Support patient choice, accelerated restoration of function and sustainable, drug-free pain relief.

Acupuncture is a valued component of the medical mainstream. Do you think seniors and our service men and women should benefit from it?
