To carry out our legislative initiative, each year we promote respiratory therapists by setting aside an Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill. Recently, the focus has been on telehealth. Members of our Political Action Contact Team (PACT) are instrumental in making the day a success. During the 115th Congress, there are three telehealth bills that include respiratory therapists as telehealth providers and respiratory care as a telehealth service. Learn more about AARC’s legislative agenda and obtain an overview of the bills by reading our Frequently Asked Questions. Additional details on how you can reach out to your Congressional leaders to advocate for the telehealth bills are found on AARC’s Legislative Initiative webpage.
