HB 3530-B PASSES UNANIMOUSLY!

OREGON ODs WIN MAJOR VICTORY IN PROHIBITING VISION PLAN ABUSES!

Thanks to OOPA members educating their legislators, our Advocacy Team taking days away from their practices to testify, and countless hours of advocacy….

HB 3530-B UNANIMOUSLY passed its final legislative step today and is on its way to the Governor for signature!

Now..vision plans can no longer force you to take required discounts on materials that are not covered by the insurer.

Vision plans can no longer force you to use their out-of-state labs.

They can no longer mandate that you to participate in other low reimbursement plans as a condition of participating in your primary plan.

HB3530-B protects Oregon small business, including locally owned labs and keeps skilled jobs in Oregon.

With 80% of Oregon patients insured by these major vision plans, it was mission critical that OOPA advocate for fairness in contracting and level the playing field to keep lab business in Oregon.

If you see the bottom line benefit of  this major legislative victory to your practice and profession, make a celebratory contribution to OOPAC now at www.oregonoptometry.org/support-optometry.

Congratulations and thank you to the OOPA  members who sacrificed their patient revenue to advocate on your behalf to achieve this major victory.
