TAKE ACTION: Additional CHC Asks to Senate!
ReCept Pharmacy is proud to partner with NACHC in the effort to help support Community Health Centers. Please see their statement below and learn how you can take action. Make a difference today and help spread the word!!
We need you! Congress needs to hear loud and clear that Community Health Centers are essential to our communities. They need to know that you expect them to prioritize the health and well-being of your families and communities.
The Senate recently released their version of the 4th COVID-19 Relief Bill — which included $7.6 Billion for CHC Emergency Funding. Soon, the House and Senate will begin working together on a compromise funding bill.
We must keep the pressure up!
Please ask your Members of Congress to persuade Congressional Leadership to include the following in the final compromise bill:
• The inclusion of health center look-alikes in those able to access the $7.6 billion of emergency COVID-19 relief funds;
• An extension of the PPP which would allow health centers with over 500 employees to be eligible for the program; and,
• Equal reimbursement for health centers’ for Medicare telehealth visits.
The inclusion of these Asks is critical to ensure that Community Health Centers can continue providing quality primary care to nearly 30 million patients nationwide.
We must keep the pressure on Congress to make sure that CHC emergency and long-term CHC funding are Congressional priorities.
Your voice (and the voices of all those you invite to take action with you) is truly needed. Contact your member of Congress today.
With enduring gratitude,
Your Grassroots Advocacy Team
