Sacramento, CA – The California Society of Health-System Pharmacists (CSHP) is proud to announce its support of bipartisan federal bills HR 592 and S 109, also known as The Pharmacy and Medically Underserved Areas Enhancement Act. Your action today will help enhance the pharmacy profession and care for the medically underserved!
HR 592 and S 109 are vital pieces of legislation which will expand access to health care and improve public health for medically underserved populations. Under these bills, pharmacists will be able to offer Medicare beneficiaries the same services they are already authorized to provide through their state pharmacy practice acts.
As a pharmacist and a constituent, you have tremendous influence with your Congress members. CSHP asks its pharmacists, technicians, and fellow pharmacy professionals to act by sending a letter to US Senators Kamala Harris, Dianne Feinstein, and specific member of Congress, requesting their support and co-sponsorship of these crucial bills.
To do this, simply visit https://www.votervoice.net/CSHP/campaigns/49573/respond. A letter has already been composed by CSHP and will be sent to your representatives with a quick click of the mouse. All you need to do is provide your name, address and hit submit. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call CSHP’s office at 916-447-1033. Again, with your help, you can be a part of the Evolution of Pharmacy!
