The government of Oregon has passed this bill expanding our prescription rights for the simple purpose of patient accessability to health care. For a great many years we have quietly taken care of both insured and uninsured patients through our public and private practices by participation with the Community Care Coalition, breast and cervical cancer screening via the Komen Oregon Breast and Cervical Cancer program, and the VFC program (vaccine for children program). Many of us provided family health care through the Oregon Health Plan. Many of us delivered babies.
We have had prescription rights for many medications and have demonstrated that we are responsible prescribers.
This law allows me to prescribe medicine as a Family Practice physician but in an integrated setting. I understand my strengths and limitations.
