CAM: We are fortunate that Minnesota is a Health Freedom State. You have the legal right and freedom to seek the assistance of other than allopathic or licensed health care practitioners; in other words you have the right to seek the offerings of acupuncturists, chiropractors, along with hypnotists, naturopaths, herbalists, nutritionists, etc.
As of July 1, 2001, Minnesota’s Freedom of Access to Complementary Care Law (Statute Chapter 146A and section 146A.11) gives practitioners such as myself, and clients such as you, the right to work together. This Statute requires that you receive and acknowledge that you have received a Complementary & Alternative (CAM) Health Care “Client Bill of Rights”.
When I am at Life Medical clinic locations, I follow licensing regulations set by the state and the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health, offering the ability diagnose and accept insurance like any other health professional in Minnesota.
