This announcement has 2 attachments:
Hello All: We need immediate action by ALL NP's to contact their US representatives to encourage support on this bill. I have uploaded a sample letter and also a short "report" on AMA's action to kill this bill. PLEASE...you can click on the link below and in less than 5 minutes have a message sent to your congress person.
Today, the U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to debate and vote on H.R. 6087, the Improving Access to Workers’ Compensation for Injured Federal Workers Act. This bill would authorize NPs (and PAs) to diagnose, certify the injury and extent of the disability, and oversee the patient’s treatment and care for federal employees who are injured or become ill as a result of their federal employment. You should have already received a grassroots message from AANP asking you to send a letter to your Member of Congress. This request was also included in yesterday’s Government Affairs Update. Today, we have two urgent requests:
- If you have not already done so, please use the AANP Advocacy Center to send a letter to your Representative urging them to VOTE YES on this bill. The AANP Advocacy Center has a pre-written letter that you can use to quickly email your Member of Congress.
- Please engage your state level NPOs to either send out their own advocacy alert or to ask them to engage with their Representatives using the AANP Advocacy Center using the link above .
