OTHA.us and OTHA.Academy acknowledge the California Senate Bill SB-577 that affirms
“the right of citizens to obtain Alternative and Complementary Health Care from practitioners other than licensed Physicians and Surgeons, or other licensed health professions.”
In Paragraph 1 of SB 577 the Legislature made a Finding that:
Based upon a comprehensive report by the National Institute of Medicine and other studies, including a study published by the New England Journal of Medicine, it is evident that millions of Californians, perhaps more than five million, are presently receiving a substantial volume of health care services from complementary and alternative healthcare practitioners.
Those studies further indicate that individuals utilizing complementary and alternative health care services cut across a wide variety of age, ethnic, socioeconomic, and other demographic categories.”
Thus, the Legislature wanted to recognize Alternative and Complementary health care and provide a framework of guidelines and notices.
Pursuant to this Act of the Legislature, Alternative and Complementary Health Care Practitioners must inform clients that they are not Physicians and Surgeons or allied Licensed practitioners and that for a western medical diagnosis and treatment, including, but not limited to, prescription drugs, surgery and the treatment of fractures, lacerations and abrasions, the clients must see an MD, Physician or Surgeon.
The notice must also state the nature of the Alternative and Complementary health care practice that is being provided.
