PLEASE ACT NOW
The Medicare Respiratory Therapist Access Act of 2013 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.
Thank you for supporting the AARC's Virtual Lobby Week!
Well done, Carleen Waltner, SDSRC PACT Representative. Thank you for representing SD Respiratory Therapists on Capital Hill again in 2013!
