RE: Potential Aid for Naturopathic Doctors and Organizations Impacted by Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The mission of the Federation of Naturopathic Medicine Regulatory Authorities (FNMRA) is to protect the public by connecting regulatory authorities and promoting standards of excellence in the regulation of naturopathic medicine.

We are aware that the Trump Administration and Congress are considering measures to support cash-flow assistance amid the COVID-19 outbreak, and we urge that licensed naturopathic doctors and their tax-exempt entities (clinics, academic institutions and other organizations) be included in any temporary or other aid designed to stem the economic fallout resulting from COVID-19.

Inclusion in the bill wording will provide support for naturopathic doctors (NDs) who are primary care providers that have an important role in helping American citizens cope with the ongoing pandemic and its aftermath. Many naturopathic doctors are small-business owners or work as independent contractors. Most are being required to close down their businesses as they comply with the need for social distancing to stem the spread of the virus.
