43rd, 44th Co-Sponsors Sign on to Support HR 818

By Editorial Staff

Representatives Peter A. DeFazio (D-OR) and Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) have become the 43rd and 44th co-sponsors, respectively, of HR 818, the Federal Acupuncture Coverage Act of 2005. Rep.

DeFazio is the second member from Oregon's congressional delegation to lend his support to HR 818, and has co-sponsored previous versions of the bill in past sessions. Rep. Maloney co-sponsored the Federal Acupuncture Coverage Act when it was introduced in the last congressional session as HR 1477, and is the seventh representative from New York to co-sponsor the current bill. She is also the 10th member of the Committee on Government Reform to co-sponsor the legislation.

Introduced by Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), the purpose of the Federal Acupuncture Coverage Act is to amend the Social Security Act to provide for coverage of qualified acupuncturist services under part B of the Medicare program, and to amend title 5 of the United States Code to provide for coverage of such services under the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. The bill has been introduced in every congressional session since 1993.
