Learn about the legislative and regulatory issues affecting senior care pharmacists:
SPEAK UP for Senior Care Pharmacy
SPEAK UP for Senior Care Pharmacy is ASCP’s Advocacy Fund. ASCP uses these funds for policy and advocacy tools such as databases, consultants, and technologies that help spread our message across official Washington. Our goal is to increase our first-time donations of $150 or more by 50 percent, and maintain 100 percent of our current $150 or more contributors.
To ensure policymakers hear your voice, we need your donations to the SPEAK UP fund. Your contributions will help ensure the availability of tools, resources and information you need to secure your future as a practicing senior care pharmacist, and to pave the way for training and development of fellow senior care pharmacists.
TAKE ACTION ON PROVIDER STATUS
Provider status was reintroduced in the 115th Congress as H.R. 592 and S.109. They would allow pharmacists to practice at the top of their state-issued license in medically underserved areas. Read more about Provider Status.
ASCP’s online action center is a tool to help you reach out to your elected officials on issues important to your practice, and the pharmacy industry. Enter your information below and the system will pull up your legislators and a template letter thanking supporting officials, or encouraging those who do not support to climb on the bandwagon.
Within the template letter, please include a paragraph on how the policy affects you, your practice, and the community. After you personalize the letter, the system will send it to the legislator’s office.
ASCP-PAC (Members Only)
PAC donations are a mechanism for advancing ASCP's legislative and policy agenda by assisting certain political candidates in securing or maintaining elected offices.
ASCP's Grassroots Network is a members-only communications platform designed to engage in ASCP's advocacy initiatives and seek opportunities to meet with Congressional members, their staff, and important stakeholders on critical issues. The grassroots network is open to all ASCP members. To join this group, please email email@example.com.
