ACCP Report - January 2019

Washington Report

Grassroots Action Alert: Welcome Your Elected Officials to the 116th Congress!


John K. McGlew
Director of Government Affairs

As the new Congress gets under way, ACCP remains fully committed to its initiative to seek Medicare coverage for the direct patient care services of qualified clinical pharmacists practicing as fully integrated members of interprofessional patient care teams.

But the College needs your help. As part of this comprehensive advocacy effort, members of Congress need to hear from clinical pharmacists helping to “get the medications right” on behalf of patients in their state or district.

Contacting the offices of your elected officials is simple. On the College’s revamped Legislative Action Center, ACCP has prepared a letter for you to review and edit. Simply follow the instructions to send this message to Capitol Hill.

Please take the time to personalize the letter by providing additional information about your practice and the patients you care for, and remember to let ACCP know about any responses you receive from your elected officials.

Please also consider inviting your senators and representative to visit your practice setting to learn firsthand about the value that clinical pharmacists bring to the health care delivery team. Thank you for participating in this important advocacy effort! Click here to take action today!
