ODs Call on Vision Plans to Stop Being "Anti-Optometry"

Joe Ellis, O.D., past president of the AOA (American Optometric Assn.) and Kentucky Optometric Assn. (KOA), recently called on vision plan executives to immediately halt their anti-optometry lobbying efforts now under way in Washington, D.C., and state capitals around the country, and to work with optometric leaders to lock in the profession’s recent legislative and regulatory victories, including the new designation of pediatric vision care as essential and the Harkin patient access law targeting discriminatory Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) plans.
