The practice of acupuncture is not regulated in Israel. Medical doctors are practicing
acupuncture without the need for a special licence. The non-medical practitioners of
acupuncture usually graduate from a 4-year programme at a CAM college (163).
There have been several government-assigned committees suggesting a framework for the definition of the CAM practice, with a special emphasis on acupuncture. This framework has not yet been approved by all the relevant parties (163).
Reimbursement of Acupuncture is regulated in the Health Insurance Law from 1995 (165).
