ATTENTION ALL CARDIAC AND PULMONARY REHAB PROGRAMS!!
Please go to News / Events tab. Pull up "Call to Action: Senate Bill 382."
WE NEED EVERYONE’S SUPPORT (NOT JUST MEMBERS).
What has been done so far:
Your help is needed TODAY to protect cardiac and pulmonary rehab programs!
AACVPR requests that cardiopulmonary rehab professionals, referring physicians, hospital administrators IMMEDIATELY contact their U.S. Senators to urge them to Co-sponsor a bill that will correct the unintended legislative language which restricts physician supervision of cardiac and pulmonary rehab programs by nurse practitioners, physician assistants and clinical nurse practitioners.
S.382 was co-introduced by Senators Schumer (D-NY) and Crapo (R-ID) on February 26, 2013.
This bill is NO COST because supervision of cardiac and pulmonary rehab is not billable to Medicare.
This bill is NON PARTISAN. Access to care for Medicare beneficiaries is not a Republican or Democratic issue.
This bill CORRECTS THE BLOCK TO ACCESS TO CARE FOR MEDICARE BENEFICIARIES for services they have a right to receive under public law 110-275.
