What Is AcuCongress: Designed for ONE REASON: To Include Licensed Acupuncturists as covered healthcare providers in the Social Security Act!


Our Goal: 100% District Matches & Deeply Affordable Training for All State Association Members & Inclusion in

AcuCongress Virtual Fly-In on December 8, 2021! 


What We Are:

A Coalition designed to train advocates in the profession to do ONE THING: Include L.Acs in the Social Security Act to be able to bill Medicare directly and without physician (as defined in the SSA,) nurse practitioner, or physician assistant supervision as listed in the 2020 CMS guidelines for covering acupuncture for chronic lower back pain.


AcuCongress training is FREE to anyone wanting to advocate for the Acupuncture Industry. For those wanting to take larger roles, we have created the AcuCongress National Acuvist Training Program designed to train State Captains & District Leaders to serve as coordinators in ANY federal legislative effort!


What We Are Not:

We are NOT a trade association. We are here to train and offer help to state & national direct membership acupuncture organizations.

We are NOT Tribal: ALL ARE WELCOME AND NEEDED!!


WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN ACUCONGRESS? EVERYONE!!

Licensed Acupuncturists: YOU HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO ADVOCATE FOR YOUR PROFESSION!!

Students of Acupuncture: IT IS NEVER TOO EARLY TO ADVOCATE FOR YOUR FUTURE!!

Industry Suppliers: WHAT AFFECTS PROVIDERS, AFFECTS SUPPLIERS!!

Patients & Fans of Acupuncture: NOTHING MOVES LEGISLATORS & STAFF MORE THAN TESTIMONIALS!!


What is the COST of Participation in AcuCongress?

All AcuCongress Training is FREE.


The AcuCongress EVENTS will incur nominal costs with discounts for Partner Organizations

*EXCEPTION: PATIENTS ALWAYS ATTEND ACUCONGRESS EVENTS FOR FREE.

AcuCongress Free Training

Calling all Licensed Acupuncturists, students, industry suppliers, patients and fans of acupuncture: This industry needs advocates to help move federal acupuncture legislation! We are looking for State Captains & District Leaders, as well as EVERY INDUSTRY MEMBER who is passionate about the progress of the Acupuncture Industry! Your voice is IMPORTANT! AcuCongress will train all who want to take part: no experience required to be involved!
