Happy Holiday Season to all.  Attached you will find a letter detailing information on House Bill 2619, The Medicare Respiratory Therapist Access Act.  As the LSRC State President, I ask that you take the time to read the attached letter along with documentation provided by the AARC.  The Louisiana Society For Respiratory Care and the American Association For Respiratory Care Support this Legislation.  We can already see that Healthcare Reform has taken its effect on all us in the Health Care Arena. 

 

It is time that we take an aggressive proactive stance in promoting this legislation.  Our Congressmen and Senators in Washington need to hear from us as Respiratory Therapist, the patients we care for, the organizations that support us, and the advocacy groups, etc.  I would encourage each and everyone to attend Town Hall Meetings when they are in your area, visit with the Staffers and discuss HB 2619 and the importance that it would mean to patient’s that have these Pulmonary Disease Processes.  This Bill will reduce Hospital Admissions and provide the patient’s with an avenue to receive further education and teaching on their Processes enhancing them to become more complaint in the management of their health.  Explain your role as a Respiratory Therapist and the benefits the patient with receive from your education and work knowledge.

 

Please visit the AARC Government Affairs Section on the AARC Website to take Action Supporting House Bill 2619.  We need you!
