Urge Your Members of Congress to Co-Sponsor the
Independence at Home Act TODAY!
Representatives Edward Markey (D-MA) and Christopher Smith (R-NJ) and Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR), Richard Burr (R-NC), Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) have reintroduced the “Independence at Home Act of 2009” (H.R. 2560/S. 1131) to allow Medicare patients with multiple chronic conditions to receive primary care at home in a familiar and comfortable environment. This legislation would provide patients with care options that offer both independence and quality of life. Moreover, it recognizes the integral role nurses and nurse practitioners play in the delivery of primary care and helps bring the focus of our health care system back where it belongs—on the patient and the community.
Please email your members of Congress and ask them to cosponsor the Independence at Home Act of 2009 (H.R. 2560/S. 1131) TODAY!
