ASK CONGRESS TO SUPPORT THE BREATHE ACT: HR 2508
VIRTUAL LOBBY WEEK CAMPAIGN: MAY 14-MAY 23, 2019
WE NOW HAVE A BILL NUMBER FOR OUR LEGISLATION CALLED THE BREATHE ACT
(Better Respiration through Expanding Access to Tele-Health) – HR 2508!
To recap, this legislation is a 3-year pilot that allows qualified respiratory therapists to furnish disease management services, such as self-management education and training, demonstration and evaluation of proper inhaler techniques, smoking cessation and remote patient monitoring to Medicare beneficiaries with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) via telehealth under the direction of a physician.
THE AARC IS REBOOTING ANOTHER VIRTUAL LOBBY WEEK SO WE CAN LET MEMBERS OF CONGRESS KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THIS LEGISLATION IS FOR OUR PATIENTS!
SO…STARTING MAY 14TH, JUST TEXT THE WORD BREATHE TO 52886 AND YOU’LL RECEIVE THE DIRECT LINK TO TAKE YOU TO THE AARC ACTION PAGE WHERE YOU CAN FOLLOW THE PROMPTS AND SEND YOUR EMAIL TO CONGRESS. YOU CAN ALSO SPREAD THE WORD VIA SOCIAL MEDIA – GET EVERYONE INVOLVED!!!
Thank you! Lisa Zaenger – AARC PACT Co-Chair for Illinois
