PUTT has been working to align our message with National Community Pharmacists Association to ensure talking points are as effective and collaborative as possible. When calling your local legislator ask specifically for the healthcare aide. Talking points are accessible here.
Also, recently, 16 Senators and 30 members of the House of Representatives sent letters to Medicare urging the agency to finalize guidance on DIR fees. If your Senator(s) or Representative signed these letters, please thank them here. If they did not sign on, please send them a message urging them to sign.
If you are interested in getting in touch with your local media, we recommend calling the “news tip” number on their website. Tell them your story and how this issue impacts you. Try to use personal examples and feel free to use the information from the talking points.
