Support our House Bill 2778

HB 2778 effectively puts an end to prior authorization programs.  It also has a provision that stops insurer's from charging higher copays/co-insurance/deductibles than what it costs to access physician services.  Lastly, the bill has some language amended that will not allow insurer's to request refunds for services rendered when benefits were quoted.  

What we need now is:

  1. LAc's to write emails and get their colleagues to also send emails to Mitch Greenlick in support of the bill. 

  2. Send letters to patients who have been impacted by prior authorization programs or high co-pays and see if they can also send emails in support of the bill.

  3. We are also really in need of LAc's, DC's or LMT's and patients who may be able to attend a meeting in Salem No date set, but often a short turn-around. Really need bodies present.  No need to talk unless you have a story of a patient being denied services that you want to share.  Need to have 15 -20 people there and this is crucial to getting the bill through the committee.  

    Also, if you're available on any specific day, for example Wednesdays and Tuesdays please let Oliver Leonetti know and he will work on organizing a few car pools depending on which day they schedule the meeting.

Anyone who emails in support of the bill, can you please CC:
We are trying to roughly track how many emails are going out.
