Lobby for National Certification!
Acupuncture will be incorporated into the national healthcare model (e.g. Veterans care, Medicaid) however, there is no guarantee that LAcs will get those jobs.

We must develop national certification to be accepted as providers. Let's be blunt: the CALE is a roadblock. Adopting the NCCAOM is imperative to achieving insurance parity for our profession.

Help us convince Evan Low, chair of the Business & Professions Committee, to make this change.

What you can do:

  1. Download the attached draft letter
  2. Personalize and sign it
  3. Send it - by email or snailmail
