Latest News & Events

The BREATHE Act supported by the AARC PACT has now been introduced into Congress!

To help this bill, we've kicked off another lobby campaign, which is going on now. We encourage you to write your members of Congress in support of H.R. 2508, the BREATHE Act, to improve access to telehealth services delivered by respiratory therapists.

Why this is important

Officially known as the Better Respiration through Expanding Access to Tele-Health Act, H.R.  2508 will support a three-year pilot project allowing qualified respiratory therapists (RTs) to serve as telehealth practitioners to deliver disease management services to Medicare beneficiaries with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

Two important messages

  • Message #1: Ask your House members to co-sponsor the BREATHE Act in the House.
  • Message #2: Ask your Senators to introduce a companion bill to H.R. 2508 in the Senate. 

Tools to Share Your Message

May 20 Twitter Blast

On Monday, May 20, we encourage advocates to send messages primarily through Twitter. Please note you must have an active Twitter account to do this. Our goal is to have a storm of tweets to Congressional leaders that day so RT voices are heard loud and clear.

Your voice matters

You are the voice of respiratory care. Sharing your voice can help ensure the success of this legislation.

Thank you for your support and for the dedication you give each day to your patients and the profession.
