TIME FOR YOU TO TAKE ACTION!

CONTACT YOUR SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES!

HELP GET LEGISLATION PASSED FOR CARDIAC AND PULMONARY REHABILITATION! 

Day on the Hill 2006 was a successful first step toward a legislative fix for cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation. More than 100 members of AACVPR had over 200 meetings with Senators and House of Representative members to ask for support of two identical bills that have been introduced: S. 1440 to the Senate and HR 4824 to the House of Representatives.

Now we need you. All members of the Senate and the House of Representatives need to be asked to co-sponsor this legislation. Please help make this grass roots campaign effective by contacting your Senators and the House of Representatives in your district.

NEW LEGISLATIVE AND REGULATORY ISSUES PAGE ON AACVPR WEB SITE! 
There is a new resource on the AACVPR web site home page with all the information you need to participate in this push to Congress to pass legislation mandating the coverage of cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation. It will take you through step by step on how to identify and contact your representatives, a sample letter, disease statistics relevant to your state and/or district, background information to bring you up to date on the issues, and links to follow the progress of this campaign for co-sponsorship of both bills. To access this page, please click here

Your Affiliate Reimbursement Contact Person (RCP) in your state or region is familiar and ready to help with this country-wide effort. Please work closely with your RCP so that it is a unified and consistent message that is sent to our legislators.

Please do not include patients at this time. AACVPR will provide further instruction if that strategy becomes necessary. If we all do our part, we can make a difference as professionals who care about our patients.
