The Fight for Insurance Coverage in PA

A few months ago, we in the Association for Professional Acupuncture in PA were petitioned by a consumer/patient to help her lobby our state house to mandate insurance coverage. For those who don't know, PA is not exactly an Acupuncture friendly state. We're still fighting to get rid of a referral requirement and weren't even allowed to have Acu schools in the state till 3 years ago.

The state of almost every state legislature in the country is that insurance mandates will not be passed. Thus we have to lobby the insurance companies directly. We've even managed to get some good press you can read here: Will Blue Cross cover ancient healing methods?
