“Clinicians, health insurers, and other stakeholders have initiated meetings that many pain experts hope will result in extending insurance coverage to include yoga, acupuncture, and other integrated approaches to pain management.

The first-ever Integrative Pain Care Policy Congress was launched here at the Academy of Integrative Pain Management (AIPM) 28th Annual Meeting

More than 50 delegates, including representatives from professional associations, public and private insurers, patient advocacy groups, and others, are meeting behind closed doors to discuss the possibility of extending coverage to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approaches to pain management.
