Do you want your health insurance to cover your visits to your naturopathic doctor?

Help the RIANP fight for health insurance coverage for Naturopathic Doctors in Rhode Island. 

Naturopathic Doctors are now licensed in Rhode Island, but insurance companies do not yet cover this service. The RIANP will be back at the State House this spring to fight for health insurance coverage for you! Getting insurance coverage will mean that your visits will be covered and you will no longer have to pay out of pocket to see your naturopathic doctor. 

Your support is critical. Please click the link below to sign the petition to support the RIANP’s fight for health insurance coverage of Naturopathic Doctors.  Rhode Islanders deserve accessibility to this natural health care option. Click below to sign the petition:

OUR MISSION

To increase access to quality healthcare and forward the field of Naturopathic Medicine in the areas of public education, accessibility, and efforts toward licensing naturopathic doctors in Rhode Island.

Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are trained as general practice physicians and are experts in natural medicine, blending non-toxic natural therapies with current advancements in the studies of health and human systems while covering all aspects of family healthcare from prenatal to geriatrics.

A Naturopathic Physicians Act:

What a licensure bill will do: The legislation would require licensure for naturopathic doctors to practice in Rhode Island, by establishing educational and practice standards and a board to regulate the profession. There are U.S. 20 jurisdictions that currently license naturopathic doctors – 17 states, Washington D.C., and all the U.S. territories.

Why a licensure bill is needed:

Licensure ensures high quality naturopathic care in Rhode Island by protecting the consumer from unqualified practitioners who claim to be naturopathic doctors. Licensure will improve access to complementary medicine and promote business development because more qualified specialists in natural medicine will be encouraged to practice in Rhode Island.
