Health Care Opportunites

Dear Colleagues and Friends:

We are now finalizing our five proposed legislative bills. Thanks very much to those of you who have provided comments and publicized the call for comments thus far. You have served as a vital element in this process and your efforts are greatly appreciated.

We encourage each of you to review and provide comments one last time. The third and final comment period will run through November 30th 5 p.m. ET. We will be sending out an announcement kicking off the comment period shortly.

The final step of the bill drafting process, will be hosting an open Town Hall, facilitated by William Morris with members of the AAAOM Board and Legislative Committee in attendance. Bill drafting and CAM legislation expert, Beth Clay, of Capitol Strategy Consultants, Inc., will be on hand to answer questions and provide additional information. The expressed concerns related to the Medicare opt-out clause will be addressed as well as the overall federal political process. Please watch your email, AAAOM Facebook postings, and updates on our website announcing the dates and times of this important opportunity.

As a reminder to AOM organizations, please forward letters (on letterhead) introducing your organization and providing endorsement so we can include these in our sponsor educational packet. We have legislators interested in sponsoring one or more of our legislative pieces in addition to a possible congressional resolution, so your support is important in moving this process forward. If you have any questions about this step, please contact AAAOM Executive Director Denise Graham. All letters should be sent to dgraham@aaaomonline.org by the close of the comment period so they will be included in the first version of the educational packet.

This is an exciting time in health care. With change comes opportunity. It is vital that we work to ensure AOM services are not only included as a part of the healthcare offerings, but that we enable our patients to receive the best possible care via fully-trained, competent providers.

We will continue to keep you apprised of our progress as we move forward. Thank you for your participation in this important process.

Sincerely,

Michael Jabbour, MS, LAc

President, AAAOM Board of Directors
