Petition to Include NDs as Covered Providers in Medicare Program

March 27, 2014

Approximately 40% of America's population believes in and would like access to natural health care alternatives such as naturopathic doctors (ND) and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). The public realizes that prevention of illness and disease is much better than trying to treat their health problems after they occur. NDs are primary care physicians who practice preventive health care using natural products. They are also experts at treating chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Not only does this form of medicine provide quality healthcare but it is also very cost effective. Studies show substantial reductions in costs - often over 30% - to health plans that integrate NDs and CAM into their plans. See some studies here:

If you agree that Americans should have increased access to CAM providers, then sign this petition to the White House to include NDs as covered providers in the Medicare program.
