Contact your Congressional Members re: Healthcare Reform
ASPEN wants to ensure that health care coverage is accessible and affordable to all patients. Our ASPEN Public Policy Agenda drives our position on draft legislation and the objectives include active advocacy for high priority issues pertaining to nutrition support by, among other things:
- Working on patient access to nutrition care through changing reimbursement;
- Advocating for fair reimbursement to ensure that beneficiaries of government funded health programs receive the highest quality nutrition support care;
- Sponsoring the concept of a fair marketplace that does not jeopardize the provision of safe and quality nutrition support; and
- Supporting reimbursement for nutrition clinician services to improve patient care.
The ASPEN Public Policy Committee will continue to advocate to meet these objectives and share our efforts and calls to action with the membership, particularly as the administration and Congress continue to work on health care legislation.
