The more calls that a House member receives, the higher the chances that we will have this bill move forward this year. Everyone’s input helps.

Converse With Your U.S. Representatives Over the Phone
A brief phone call to your US Representative’s DC office is also very powerful to express your support for HR 3348 and HR 1956.
It is a very simple message:
Share your name, where you live and where you work
Ask for support of these two bills
HR 3348 to allow adequate reimbursement for ALL cardiac and pulmonary rehab programs, whether on or off campus,
HR 1956 to increase access to cardiac and pulmonary rehab programs by allowing non-physician practitioners to order and supervise these services beginning in January 2022.
Explain why both bills are important to you
HR 1956 increases access beginning in 2022 to medically directed, life-saving cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs by reducing delay to enrollment and allowing professional practitioners to order and supervise these services. The Access to Quality Cardiac Rehabilitation Care Act of 2021 simply moves up the enactment date from 2024 so people can get started with the life-saving treatment they need now.
HR3348 will allow program locations that are more accessible to patients and offer larger capacity to provide these services to more patients
