Write to Congress in Support of Medicare Telehealth Parity Act

 Updated: April 20, 2017

Think your letters to Congress don’t work? They do!

As Virtual Lobby Week continues as a prelude to Political Advocacy Contact Team (PACT) visits to Congress on April 12 in support of the Medicare Telehealth Parity Act, we know they are making a difference.

Cheryl West, director of government affairs, explains that in today’s political environment, it is difficult to obtain a meeting with members of Congress. Your letters help pave the way for better access to these decision-makers and their legislative assistants who deal with health issues. And the more emails sent out before PACT reps “Hit the Hill” the stronger the message will be to Congress to support the Medicare Parity Act.

So gather your co-workers, family, friends, patients, and others, and help bring the RT message to your members of Congress.
