ASBC and its member organization, the Integrative Healthcare Policy Consortium (IHPC) is launching a strategic state-by-state campaign to support the implementation of Section 2706 of the Affordable Care Act in 2013. Section 2706 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is titled “Nondiscrimination in Health Care.” It requires that insurers include and reimburse licensed health care providers in health insurance plans.
Our goal is to ensure that chiropractors, M.D.’s, naturopathic physicians, acupuncturists, massage therapists, osteopaths, nurse practitioners and licensed or direct entry midwives and podiatrists are covered, as long as they are licensed by the state. Make sure the ACA doesn’t discriminate against complementary and alternative medicine. To learn more, see the Integrative Healthcare Policy Consortium's FAQ.
