Status of Bill H1179 / S1458 as of Mid June 2022
The ASM is excited to announce that the bill we have been working so hard to pass has now moved to the House Committee on Ways and Means as of 6/6/22. This is the final committee that needs to pass this bill before it is voted on in the House of Representatives. They decide if the bill can fit into the budget. This is only the house bill that has advanced to this committee.

What The Bill Will Do
An Act Relative to the Practice of Acupuncture is an Acupuncture / Insurance Bill (House 1179 and Senate 1458) which would expand insurance coverage for acupuncture treatments of pain, nausea, opiate withdrawal and PTSD. Essentially, if passed, would increase consumer access to acupuncture and best possible care.
We appreciate everyone’s time and support. Together we can make a difference.
