U.S. Congress Takes Up AARC Initiative
The Medicare Respiratory Therapist Access has a bill number in the House of Representatives. It is H.R.2619. Please send letters to our South Dakota State Representatives for support of our bill H.R.2619. It is very simple to do. Go to AARC Website-click on "Write to Congress"-click on "Respiratory Therapy Alert" and you will be finished in no time. It's the right thing to do for better patient care, less hospital readmissions, and value as a Respiratory Therapist.
We are small in numbers but can be big in voice if we just do it.
