Ask Your Members of Congress to Cosponsor Permanent Medicare Relief Legislation
Yesterday morning, Congressmen Walden, Welch, Nunes and Neal sent a Dear Colleague to their fellow members of the House of Representatives asking them to cosponsor the Medicare Ambulance Access, Fraud Prevention and Reform Act of 2015 (S. 377, H.R. 745). This bill will make the current temporary ambulance add-on payments permanent for all ambulance services.
Even with our recent victory of a temporary 33-month extension of crucial Medicare ambulance relief, our Champions on Capitol Hill realize the importance of receiving permanent Medicare relief. They, like every ambulance service across the country, understand that a permanent solution is necessary to provide quality health care to individuals and our communities both today and tomorrow.
The AAA has been working tirelessly to help advance this critical legislation. Now, more than ever, it is important that all members of the AAA contact their members of Congress and ask them to cosponsor both S. 377 and H.R. 745. Coupled with the recent Dear Colleague sent by our Champions on Capitol Hill, your individual contact with your representatives will be a powerful tool in helping to push for permanent Medicare ambulance relief.
Every letter, phone call, and meeting will help us to achieve this important milestone of receiving permanent Medicare ambulance relief. I invite you to use the AAA’s letter writing tool to write you members of congress. You can access the tool by clicking here.
Using the AAA’s tool will allow you to write your members of Congress in less than 3 minutes. I hope that each of you will continue to participate in this call to action. It is thanks to each of you that we have made it this far in our efforts. Members of the AAA should be proud of all that we have accomplished up to this point.
Again, you can click here to write you members of Congress using the AAA’s letter writing tool. And, if possible, I invite you to schedule meetings with your representatives to talk about this issue. Let’s keep the momentum rolling.
Thank you for all of your hard work.
