History of mn natural health l.jpg

History of MN Natural Health

  • The Minnesota Natural Health Legal Reform Project (MNHLRP) was founded in 1997 in response to an unprecedented number of actions against holistic health practitioners.

  • There were no claims of harm, so this was not done to protect the public.

  • In 2000, MN passed the Health Care Freedom of Access Bill—Statute 146A.

Minnesota Natural HealthLegal Reform Project


History l.jpg

History

  • Current regulation on licensed practitioners makes it nearly impossible for them to hire or refer to Statute 146A practitioners.

  • They can, but in doing so, they risk an investigation by the medical board.

Minnesota Natural HealthLegal Reform Project


History9 l.jpg

History

  • How does all this affect injured workers?

  • MNHLRP and WCAC

  • Minnesota Statute 176.135, subd 1b prohibits work comp insurance payment of 146A practitioners who help injured workers. This was passed in 2008.

  • There is an exception for those who are employed by a licensed practitioner.

Minnesota Natural HealthLegal Reform Project


History10 l.jpg

History

  • Because of the nature of the WCAC, MNHLRP could not get it removed from the Work Comp Bill in 2008.

  • The legislature repealed the provision in 2009 and 2010.

  • The Governor vetoed it in 2009 and threatened a veto of the omnibus bill to which it was attached in 2010.

Is it safe l.jpg

Is It Safe?

  • The FDA has refused to do studies on the safety of Natural Health modalities.

  • Other countries have, however.

  • A study in Australia showed the risks of various human activities relative to 1 in a million odds of crashing on a single flight of a Boeing 747.

Minnesota Natural HealthLegal Reform Project


Is it safe12 l.jpg

Is It Safe?

  • A person is less likely to die from administration of Natural Health modalities than from a lightning strike.

  • It actually showed up as negative risk.

  • Work place accidents had the third highest society and personal risk.

  • Preventable Adverse Drugs was second highest and Preventable medical injuries was the highest risk.

Who wants natural health l.jpg

Who Wants Natural Health?

  • "I can't think of any major city where these kinds of services are not offered now. In some states or geographic areas it may be more difficult to find, but it's not absent. There are small and single practices everywhere, as well as major institutions like Cleveland Clinic or the Mayo Clinic. The demand has been almost entirely consumer driven."

    • Kenneth R. Pelletier, PhD, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMMC) and the University of Arizona School of Medicine

Aromatherapy l.jpg

Aromatherapy

  • Humans have the capacity to distinguish 10,000 different smells.

  • In dealing with patients who have lost the sense of smell, doctors have found that a life without fragrance can lead to high incidence of psychiatric problems such as anxiety and depression.

Minnesota Natural HealthLegal Reform Project


Aromatherapy26 l.jpg

Aromatherapy

  • The nose is the portal for the chemicals that are found naturally in many substances to be introduced into the body.

  • Other forms of medicine also use the olfactory method of delivering the medicine.

  • The CPT codes are owned by the AMA.

  • It earns the AMA an estimated $140 million annually.

Minnesota Natural HealthLegal Reform Project


Abc codes57 l.jpg

ABC Codes

  • If there are no codes for Natural Health in the most widely used coding system in the country, no statistics on effectiveness can be garnered from them.

  • If there are no codes for Natural Health, practitioners cannot get paid from Insurance or Work Comp.

Minnesota Natural HealthLegal Reform Project


Abc codes58 l.jpg

ABC Codes

  • Were developed with a grant from the Federal Government.

  • The inspiration for ABC Codes came from an insurance industry professional, Melinna Giannini, who went from doctor to doctor trying to get well. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were spent.

  • She went to a naturopath and was better in one session.

Minnesota Natural HealthLegal Reform Project


Abc codes59 l.jpg

ABC Codes

  • ABC Codes are more complete and accurate on most modalities.

  • Many plans allow only a limited number of chiropractic visits because they don’t have codes for all the treatment options available, thus they don’t have the information on effectiveness, etc.

  • It captures impartial data not influenced by special interest groups.

Minnesota Natural HealthLegal Reform Project


Abc codes60 l.jpg

ABC Codes

  • It helps determine the causes of, and finds solutions to health disparities.

  • CPT Codes have 30 minutes increments. ABC Codes have 15 minute increments.

  • Alaska Medicaid would have experienced a $2,032,856 cost increase had they only been able to bill in 30 minute increments.

Minnesota Natural HealthLegal Reform Project


Abc codes61 l.jpg

ABC Codes

  • Implementing ABC Codes in Minnesota could reduce costs and gather more information about the effectiveness of Natural Health Modalities as it relates to getting injured workers back to work.

Onsite wellness tips l.jpg

Onsite Wellness Tips

  • Do not make it mandatory. There will be willing participants and they will spread the good news to others.

  • Do not hire the Wellness providers as employees of the company. Hire them as contractors.

  • The Wellness provider needs to be viewed as a worker advocate, not an employer advocate.
