PLEASE contact your representative to support the ICAN legislation

Posted over 1 year ago by Denise Coppa

oday, legislation was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA) and Congressman Dave Joyce (R-OH) that would promote greater patient access to high quality, NP-delivered health care. The Improving Care and Access to Nurses (ICAN) Act would remove various federal barriers on NPs and other APRNs, including barriers on NPs for diabetic shoes, cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation, hospice, skilled-nursing facilities, and more.

We need your help to build support for this legislation and to ensure that The Voice of the Nurse Practitioner® is heard in Congress.

In less than five minutes, you can help us spread the message to Congress that now is the time to remove outdated Medicare and Medicaid barriers on NPs and your patients.
