New Congressional Caucus on Integrative Health and Wellness Formed

Following a lengthy period of organizing and discussion with Congressional members, formation of the caucus is announced as the nation faces critical challenges in healthcare reform and management, including the national opioid crisis.

One of IHPC’s long-standing objectives has been to support simple and direct access for members of Congress to the most recent developments about the improved health outcomes and cost-reducing qualities of integrative practice and its increasing adoption within the U.S. healthcare system.

Coffman-Polis03As a result of the bi-partisan leadership of Colorado congressmen — Democrat Jared Polis and Republican Mike Coffman — the Congressional Integrative Health and Wellness Caucus will serve as a non-partisan educational forum on up-to-date information regarding the role of integrative health, wellness and medicine, as well as an opportunity to discuss legislative and administrative options that can make integrative options more readily available, and affordable, through federally-funded programs like Medicare and Medicaid.
