The Acupuncture Poll's question for November 2005 was:

Do you support the Federal Acupuncture Coverage Act of 2005?

Results:

These results are based upon 423 responses.

As this is a voluntary, non-scientific survey, caution should be used in generalizing the results. Listed below are a sampling of responses to the poll, along with how those respondents voted. Some responses have been edited for brevity or clarity.

Yes: The introduction of coverage within the Federal Employee Health Benefits Plan, and even more importantly, Medicare, will open the door to what I feel is what will finally entrench acupuncture into the mainstream of modern medicine: the ability to work as paid staff members of hospitals throughout the country. Coming from a state that currently doesn't have third-party benefits, this would also open that elusive (though sometimes double-sided) door.

Yes: The need for diversification of options for new and current practitioners is vital to our continued existence. This bill will force all states to recognize us from an insurance standpoint, something that will be very costly to tackle on a state-by-state basis.
