The AARC interacts with local, state, and federal governments on public policies that affect our patients and our members. From Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement issues to health care reform proposals, the AARC keeps Congress, state, and local policymakers up-to-date on the issues that are important to patient care and respiratory practice.

The AARC also sends representatives to more than 20 outside groups and organizations that work on common issues, including The Joint Commission, the American Hospital Association, the American Medical Association Panel of Consultants, and the federal government’s National Asthma Education and Prevention Program, among other groups.
