I support Medicaid coverage for acupuncture. It's easy to see that the total cost of acupuncture by a licensed acupuncturist is much less than current conventional treatment which is covered by your insurance. In a time when we need to do more with less, move patients away from pharmaceuticals, and treat ailments from a multidisciplinary and integrated manner, it is high time to acknowledge and value the benefits patients get from acupuncture. It is time for this to be a covered expense for Oregonians on Medicaid!
