Beth Martin | Executive Director | On Behalf of the Legislative Committee
For the 2019 legislative session, OANP is working towards PAY PARITY for Oregon NDs. We recognize that not all NDs accept (or even want to accept) insurance in their practices. But we believe that through pay parity, we can strengthen the profession for every ND in Oregon. As we strive to protect and grow the scope of practice, we must work towards equal pay. We need strength in numbers to help us fight for Oregon NDs.
What is OANP doing to prepare for this legislative fight?
OANP has created a pay parity task force made up of Oregon NDs that is working hard behind the scenes on creating testimonials, getting information from the All Payers All Claims database (APAC), and meeting with key legislators to move this effort forward.
What can I do to help support the OANP pay parity campaign?
Renew your membership! The funds we receive from your membership dues go directly towards fighting for ND legislative efforts.
Reach out to NDs that are not members, and tell them that we need them! We are stronger together.
Reach out to your legislators, and let them know this is an issue!
