August Recess is Around the Corner. Now is the Time to Make Your Voices Heard!

Home Blog August Recess is Around the Corner. Now is the Time to Make Your Voices Heard!

Every year, members of Congress take the end of summer to spend time in their state/districts to hear from their constituent base. This year, the August recess begins August 2 and ends on September 10. Now is the time to reach out to your members of Congress at both the state and federal level to schedule a meeting during the August break. It’s important to discuss with them the impact of having access to quality care and proper home medical equipment (HME) and supplies, as well as the importance of moving HME legislation forward through both levels of government so you can continue to access these necessary services. 

Your legislators typically host events to hear their constituents’ concerns. Attending in-person events like town halls is a wonderful use of your time and resources. Visit your federal and state legislators’ websites or call their offices to find out where and when they hold town halls or other local events. 

Items you should discuss with your member of Congress 

  • Accessibility to quality services and products that you or your loved ones rely on every day 

  • The reimbursement rates for HME during the COVID-19 public health emergency remain in place after the PHE is over so that HME suppliers can continue serving you 

  • Home medical equipment suppliers be included in PPE and vaccine distribution
