The opioid epidemic is the preeminent public health crisis of our time. We have witnessed firsthand the devastation that the opioid epidemic has brought nationwide in terms of lives lost and the costs it has imposed on our healthcare system and the broader economy. The NCCAOM Academy of Diplomates is featuring this page devoted to providing information on how acupuncture services can help with the opioid crisis. This page is updated periodically.
The Academy is working to obtain a Standard Occupational Code for “Acupuncturist” under the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Standards of Occupational Classification (SOC) system, which will facilitate greater federal recognition for AOM practitioners
The NCCAOM Academy of Diplomates is helping to assure third party reimbursement for acupuncturist-provided acupuncture, by working with other integrative healthcare professions to implement the “non-discrimination” clause 2706 of the Affordable Care Act
