10/03/2017 Joint letter submission for inclusion of registered acupuncturits in medicare items
We write to you jointly as representatives and office-bearers of three of the four major professional associations representing Chinese medicine practitioners in Australia. These are the Federation of Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture Societies of Australia (FCMA), the Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA) and the Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS). We request consideration of an application for registered acupuncturists regulated by nationally consistent legislation under the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme and registered under AHPRA to have access to existing acupuncture items under the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) and therefore provide acupuncture services under Medicare.
