Members of Congress are home until April 5 for the Easter Recess. In-district meetings are a perfect opportunity for constituents to speak about critical issues like competitive bidding with their member of Congress without having to travel to Washington, D.C. As July 1, Round 2 implementation date, quickly approaches, legislators, specifically those in competitive bid areas, must be fully aware of how the current bidding program affects both providers and beneficiaries.
Inform and educate your beneficiaries and your employees. Reach out to your competitors. Ensure that everyone is fully engaged and taking action. Coordinate and schedule meetings with your representative and senators. Stand together as an industry/community to get legislators talking in DC about the flawed competitive bidding program and the need to replace it.
If you need any assistance with how to set up your meeting, your message and handouts for the appointments, please contact OAMES executive director Kam Yuricich at email@example.com.
