Warning! Doctors, Insurers Hold Patients Hostage! Says Top Acupuncture Physician
Date:2/20/2008

While drug companies act like an occupying force, doctors and insurers run a dysfunctional cartel, often intentionally denying effective treatment to

patients!

SOUTH FALLSBURG, N.Y., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Most states require years of training and National Board Certification for Licensed Acupuncturists. These professionals routinely treat difficult and chronic disease, according to Tom Chi, a NYS Licensed Acupuncturist, Doctor of Acupuncture (RI), and author of the soon to be released book, Beat Your Doctor With a Baseball Bat!

Chi says thousands of studies show that acupuncture really works: "One wonders why a vital system of proved medicine is largely excluded from our national healthcare insurance system."

For instance, Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield of New York: In 1996, Chi contacted then medical director Dan McCrohn who quickly moved to cover acupuncture. He knew that WHO, NIH and others endorsed acupuncture for a wide range of disease.

Chi says that in 2002 when Empire went "for-profit" and gave the state $1 billion dollars for the privilege, Dr. Steve Willensky, another Empire medical director, told Chi they would largely stop paying for acupuncture and recalls Willensky saying, "Send me peer-reviewed studies that show acupuncture works and we'll keep paying for it."

Chi provided fifty peer-reviewed studies showing acupuncture works for numerous conditions. According to Chi, Dr. Willensky answered, "I wish you hadn't called my bluff. We just don't want to pay for acupuncture even if it works."

Empire BC/BS of NY currently restricts acupuncture use so much that providers can't treat most patients and expect to be paid. This is how some medical doctors and insurers keep healthcare dollars in the fraternity of western medicine.

Similarly, though Congressman Maurice Hinchey (NY) has reintroduced the Federal Acupuncture Coverage Act since 1993 it has yet to pass in 15 years!
