Oregon Legislature Passes Naturopathic Formulary Bill

Jun 2, 2009 — PORTLAND, Ore. (June 2, 2009)—Oregon lawmakers today passed Senate Bill 327, expanding the prescribing authority for the state’s approximately 650 licensed naturopathic physicians. In addition to the list of naturally-derived drugs that have long been on the naturopathic formulary, Senate Bill 327 will permit naturopathic doctors to prescribe common primary care pharmaceuticals that are synthetically derived. The passage is seen as a major win for Oregonians, who face a growing shortage of primary care physicians, particularly in the rural and underserved areas of the state.
