Our profession needs your help! Please take action!

As you know AACVPR has developed a virtual lobbying tool that allows you to communicate to our legislators about HR 4838.  This is an important issue to all of us, whether you have a program that is off campus or not.  Unfortunately most of us have not made good use of the tool and these offices have received less than 20 letters!  It is imperative that they hear from their constituents and this process will take less than 10 minutes to complete.

It would be especially helpful to have our members who live in the districts where Congressional members serve on either Ways & Means or Energy & Commerce to participate – this includes Congressmen Butterfield, Holding and Hudson. While every sponsor (signature on HR 4838) counts, if we’re to be successful getting this bill into a Medicare package rumored to be going in May, we must have strong support within these two committees, which are responsible for all Medicare bills.

Please take a moment to take this step to ensure the future of our programs.  If you have any questions please contact Stacey Greenway (stacey.greenway@vidanthealth.com or 252-847-9146).
