July 28, 2021
On July 27, Coalition of State Rheumatology Organization (CSRO) advocates from around the country virtually assembled to voice their policy concerns with congressional leaders on Capitol Hill. CSRO leadership has routinely conferenced with federal lawmakers over the years, but this was the first time the meetings were designated as a formal Hill Day.
Advocates were able to express their support for federal policies that improve access to quality care for chronically ill patients. They discussed the current challenges their practices encounter, and the burden that their patients face every day without meaningful reform. Most importantly, they were able to help ensure that future legislation reflects the reality of cognitive care delivery.
The Hill Day topics included:
As Congress continues to debate healthcare reforms that impact rheumatology, the CSRO will continue to speak with representatives on Capitol Hill and share the real-world impact that federal health policy has on rheumatology practices, their patients, and the care delivery in their community.
