Legislation and public policy decisions could have profound effects for Maryland acupuncturists. The Legislative committee monitors legislation, and with advice of MAS’s lobbyist, determines what actions or responses may be needed by MAS to protect or enhance our ability to practice acupuncture. The legislative committee also participates in activities to increase awareness and utilization of acupuncture in Maryland’s healthcare, such as speaking to elected officials, agencies, and conducting the annual Maryland Acupuncture Lobby Day at the Capitol. If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The insurance committee monitors and identifies issues related to provider insurance reimbursement for acupuncture services. Members of the insurance committee will participate in researching and gathering documentation to support insurance billing issues. If you are interested, please email us at: email@example.com.
The membership committee is dedicated to making your MAS membership as valuable as possible to you. We are committed to fostering community among Maryland acupuncturists, partnering with companies to provide discounts to our members and welcoming new acupuncturists into our community upon entering the profession. Our goal for the coming years is to grow our membership to most acupuncturists in Maryland. By increasing our representation, the ASA and subsequently MAS, will be invited to the healthcare decision making tables and will be able to have a stronger voice in crafting how acupuncture is delivered, compensated and respected throughout mainstream healthcare.
