More than 400 ACR members will visit their elected federal representatives May 22 to emphasize four major legislative priorities selected by the American College of Radiology (ACR) for discussions during Capitol Hill Advocacy Day at the 2019 ACR Annual Meeting.
Participating ACR members will be asked to share the College’s position on the issues and legislation contained in the following summaries:
- Surprise Billing
- Patient Access for Lifesaving Screening (PALS) Act
- Resident Education Deferred Interest (REDI) Act
- Medicare Access to Radiological Care Act (MARCA)
These meetings are an important part of government relations efforts to realize the ACR’s advocacy goals by familiarizing lawmakers with the clinical value of radiology, radiation oncology and medical physics, and the importance of certain health care policy issues to their advancement.
ACR members also have access to the summaries and supporting documents the RAN website and Hill Day App.
