Health law boosts status of alternative medicine — at least on paper : News

 "Complementary and alternative medicine — a term that encompasses meditation, acupuncture, chiropractic care and homeopathic treatment, among other things — has become increasingly popular. About four in 10 adults — and one in nine children — in the U.S. are using some form of alternative medicine, according to the National Institutes of Health.

And with the Affordable Care Act, the field could make even more headway in the mainstream health care system. That is, unless the fine print — in state legislation and insurance plans — falls short because of unclear wording and insufficient oversight."

One clause of the health law in particular — Section 2706 — is widely discussed among providers of alternative medicine because it requires that insurance companies “shall not discriminate” against any health provider with a state-recognized license.

The smart guy we hired, with his Dems, to run the nation and get a health care bill passed has outsmarted the Taliban Republicans and MediPlex again with Section 2706 (the anti-discrimination section) of the Affordable Care Act (ACA/ObamaCare). This could take us from the current Sick Care system to a start on a true Health Care System.

Imagine being able to go to an integrative MD and my insurance company being smart enough to pay the bill because research shows that they will have higher profit margins for health care then they currently get for Drug and cut sick care. WoW, talk about a health care miracle hidden in ACA..
