Treating Veteran Population and Getting Paid for Claims
Thursday, 11/02 at 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Learn how to become a contracted fee base provider for the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), complete medical records, submit claims for payment, and request additional services. This presentation provides tools and strategies for working with military and veteran populations; engaging in hospital based research, and publishing case studies.
Participants will learn to communicate biomedical pain mechanisms in relation to Chinese medical pain mechanisms and trends towards the use of acupuncture, nutrition, and herbs to address pain and comorbid conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, and feelings of stress. There will be an in-depth review of the microbiota-gut-brain axis, the vagus nerve, and glial cell pathology in relation to pain dysregulation.
This presentation will review commonly used acupuncture approaches used by military medical acupuncturists, physical therapists, medics, and nurses; how acupuncture as a tool can be used constructively and destructively; and the emerging role of licensed acupuncturists as professional representatives in biomedical, integrated, and collaborative settings.
