HB793 Draft Regulations

I want to voice my support for the draft regulations as they stand, without any additional changes. Passing the current draft regulations as they are written will provide a fair attestation process and will help to ensure that the legislation maintains its original intent: to lower barriers to practice in Virginia.  As the regulations are currently drafted, I will be able to move forward with the transition and open a practice in King George, VA.  My initial experience (in 2003) was in California with a psychiatric group for the first 4 years and I should be able to locate them without any difficulty.  However, my next years of employment were in Virginia at Remuda Ranch which closed down due lack of third party reimbursement.  In my efforts to catch up with those psychiatrists, I've not had much luck so far.  The current draft regulations will prevent what is not in my control from being a hindrance.  Thank you!
