John Weeks is a chronicler, speaker, change agent and executive with three decades in leadership of the movement for integrative health. He works at the convergence of that historic trend with the medical industry’s recent engagement with creating health. John has consulted and presented with multiple major health care organizations – among these the NIH, WHO, AHA, AAMC, IOM, and APHA – and numerous other academic and professional organizations. He helped found key collaborations in the field including the Integrative Health Policy Consortium and the Academic Collaborative for Integrative Health. John’s writing appears regularly at the Huffington Post, Integrative Practitioner, Integrative Medicine: A Clinician’s Journal, the Integrator Blog, and elsewhere. He speaks regularly on the movement's evolution, core challenges and opportunities. He attended Stanford for 3 years, studying history. Four institutions have granted John honorary doctoral degrees. Seattle-based, Weeks feels particularly lucky to have worked 6 of the past 15 years from Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Puerto Rico with his spouse and their two children.

IHPC Part 2: Activating Through CoverMyCare.Org

Last week on the podcast we shared the epic history that took integrative medicine from quackery to the future of chronic disease management. One of the major recent victories, among many achieved by the Integrative Health Policy Consortium (IHPC), was the non-discrimination clause (Section 2706) in the Affordable Care Act that should have opened integrative medicine to the masses through their insurance.

We say ‘should have’ as the insurance companies have generally been out of compliance with that directive. The IHPC has come up with a plan (and a website) to fight this, called CoverMyCare.org, with the goal of forcing insurance companies to be compliant with the ACA.

We welcome to the podcast IHPC Executive Director Alyssa Worstel and board member Susan Haeger as they share the success of the IHPC in getting the wording into the ACA, and how our new brand of health professionals, as transformative community leaders, can work together to enforce compliance with this law and take integrative medicine to it’s rightful place in medicine, primary care.

What you will learn in this podcast:

  • How the IHPC came to being and how it supports its 400k license integrative health professionals
  • What the Section 2706 non discrimination provision of ACA should have done
  • How you can get involved to help force insurance companies into compliance
