The Oregon Association for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (OAAOM) is the current professional association for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AOM) in Oregon. OAAOM is a revitalized organization that is building upon a strong history of AOM leadership in Oregon and the United States. The presence of AOM institutions of higher education in Oregon for many years has positioned Oregon as a leader in AOM nationally. The OAAOM fills a vital role in enhancing and moving forward the profession within the state.
JOIN US FOR OAAOM LOBBY DAY!
On March 29, 2019, at 9:00 am, we are meeting in Salem for a day of legislative action to build awareness of our profession.
We will offer free group acupuncture treatments to people in the Capitol building to promote the profession and promote our upcoming legislative bill SB 887.
SB 887 allows for some covered visits without needing prior authorization for commercial plans.
Under our present scope licensed acupuncturists do not have the ability to order lab work. The OAAOM legislative committee is exploring practitioner attitudes and practices related to lab work and will use this information to inform the activities of the Labs Task Force.
BCBS and MODA
Oregon LAcs, this form is to help the OAAOM gather useful provider complaints/experiences for our ongoing meetings with management at Regence Blue Cross Blu Shield, MODA and other groups.
While you should always submit a complaint to the provider relations rep (and potentially the Oregon insurance division!) this form will help us gather complaints over time and provide accurate and useful data for reform of provider experience. Thanks for telling us your story!
