Talking Points for your letter: 1) LD882 is a “bare bones” bill that has the potential of eliminating chiropractic as a mandated provider. 2) LD882 eliminates competition in the healthcare market place. 3) LD882 eliminates a proven safe, effective and less costly healthcare provider. 4) Arguments that chiropractic can be purchased as an ADD ON or rider , will increase insurance premiums unnecessarily
Sample Letter ( Please paraphrase, do not copy verbatim)
Dear Senator/ Represenative
I am writing to you to voice my opposition to LD882. Tis Bill will eliminate chiropractic as a mandated provider. Chiropractic care is less costly, safer and a very effective alternative to other forms of medical treatment, and it is important to me.
Please Vote NO on LD882
