Did you know that Naturopathic Doctors, make an average of 40% LESS than MDs (though we go through the same and often additional schooling) when we bill insurance for the same visit? We need your help right now to change this!
Oregon Senate Bill 734 is currently in the Ways and Means human services sub-committee. You, your friends, and family can mobilize and need to ask your/their Representative and Senator to ask Elizabeth Steiner-Hayward, Betsy Johnson, and Dan Rayfield to advance this bill to committee ASAP.
Here are some talking points to get started:
• ND care is valuable to you and your family,
• Our work is worth at least as much as other providers you see that are paid market rates,
• This is an injustice to me and the people I rely on for my healthcare,
• This will help add primary care providers to Oregon’s healthcare workforce
Senator Elizabeth Steiner-Hayward:
Senator Betsy Johnson:
Representative Dan Rayfield:
Call and send e-mails to them directly. BUT ALSO call and write your own representation to ask these three co-chairs of Ways and Means to advance SB 734. To find your legislators, follow the link in the comments.
Thank you for your support! It means so much to us!
