Have Your Members of Congress Heard from You?

AS, an NP in practice, either independent or a group practice, the importance of the Federal need for NP regulation change. 

AANP thanks all of you who have taken the time to contact your Members of Congress and shared the links, shown below, with other individuals and organizations that support removing federal barriers to practice for NPs. We are delighted to tell you that more than 18,300 letters have been sent since the first of this year! Policy makers must continue to be educated regarding the benefits NPs bring to the American health care system. Please keep these issues on their minds by continuing to send letters to your Members of Congress. We also ask that as you send your letters, you add to them your personal stories regarding ways these federal barriers impact your practice. Please make sure that you sign your letters to your Members of Congress by adding your name to the form on the website.

Support for legislation to allow NPs to certify their patients' need for Home Health. Your support for legislation that would authorize NPs to document face-to-face encounters with their Medicare patients to assess the need to order all DME. Contact your Senator.
