COVID-19

Contact Congress today – Advocate for Provider Status!

Congress is currently negotiating new emergency legislation to address the COVID-19 pandemic and leaders in the House and Senate are working to reach an agreement soon. We need you to help amplify APhA’s advocacy efforts to include pharmacists provider status in any new bill by reaching out to your Member of Congress and Senators right now. Please also deliver this message to the top negotiators, Leaders McConnell, Schumer, and Speaker Pelosi to ensure our message is heard.

We MUST seize this opportunity to continue to push for pharmacists recognition as healthcare providers for Medicare patients. Please utilize the tools on the right to call and email Congress. There is a script provided for the phone calls and the email is pre-written but editable if you wish. Remember to insert your information where prompted in ALL CAPS within the script or email text. It’s easy and only takes a few moments.

  • Step 1: Call your Member of Congress and two Senators
  • Step 2: Call Congressional Leaders McConnell, Schumer, and Speaker Pelosi
  • Step 3: Email Congressional Leadership

We have an opening to achieve provider status and help patients during these challenging times. We cannot afford to miss out now – pharmacists are easy to reach and ready to serve! APhA also requests you encourage your friends and colleagues to take action as well.

If you have any questions about this communication, please contact Mary-Ryan Douglass at mrdouglass@aphanet.org. Thank you.
