Good Job, America!
The American Hospital Association reports that more and more hospitals are offering some type of complementary or alternative medicine. The number one reason? You asked for it!
The number two reason? It works! Or, as they say in medical language, "clinical effectiveness."
If your hospital or health group doesn't offer acupuncture, ask for it and they will respond! In America's non-governmental medical landscape, the market supposedly determines what is best for patients and responds accordingly. That means you've got to vote with your dollars. Tell your doctor, or better yet your hospital administrator, your insurance rep, that you want acupuncture, and if you can't get it at the hospital you'll go outside the insurance system to get it.
