Re: Ask your Congressperson to Co-Sponsor Medicare Relief and Reform (HR 5460)

This week, several Members of Congress introduced legislation critical to all of those in the ambulance industry. But we NEED YOUR HELP to ensure this bill gets the attention it deserves. Will you please ask your U.S. Representative to co-sponsor H.R. 5460?

H.R. 5460, the Medicare Ambulance Access, Fraud Prevention, and Reform Act of 2014, will modernize Medicare ambulance policies, address fraudulent conduct, and make critical stopgap funding a permanent part of the payment system.

Click here to learn more about the legislation and to send an email to your elected official. While we have provided a sample email that you can use, I highly recommend that you edit it by personalizing your message with an example of why you think the legislation is necessary.

Please Note: If you are represented by any of the following members of Congress, please thank him for his leadership on this critical industry issue: Greg Walden (OR-02), Peter Welch (VT-01), Devin Nunes (CA-22) and Richard Neal (MA-01).

Please send your co-sponsor request now. It only takes two minutes of your time. Thank you in advance for making sure our voices are heard on Capitol Hill.

Jimmy Johnson
