Actions Needed This Week! Ask Your Representative to Sign the Letter to HHS/CMS

Thank you to the many advocates of the DMEiIndustry who are attending AAHomecare’s Legislative Conference next week. If you are not attending, we need your help back home. We need you, your co-workers, family members, and friends to reach out to your congressional representative asking them to sign on to the letter to HHS Secretary Tom Price and CMS Administrator Seema Verma. This letter asks Price and Verma to make DME policy reform a priority!

Please do these two things:

  1. Send a message to your member of Congress. We have made this a simple process that only takes a minute. Visit the VGM Action Center to send a message to your representative urging them to support the letter!
  2. Follow up with a phone call to your member of Congress. Pick up the phone and call your congressional representative’s office. Tell them why it is important to the patients you serve and your business that reforming DME policies become a priority.

Grassroots efforts for the past few years have led to these developments. Recent awareness to our issues has stirred up congressional champions such as Reps. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), Dave Loebsack (D-Iowa), Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), and Diana Degette (D-Colo.). Please continue to the fight for DME!
