Support the Personalize Your Care Act 2.0!
We are so thankful that Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Congressman Phil Roe (R-TN) have introduced this important advance care planning legislation! The Personalize Your Care Act (PYCA) will increase public awareness through additional Medicare coverage for Advanced Illness Management and Choices Demonstration which allows more accessibility and more choices in care services. The legislation also requires that advance directives be included within a patient’s electronic health record in order to increase the likelihood that the documents are kept up-to-date and easy to locate.
“Conversations about end-of-life care can be difficult, but it’s extremely important for patients and their families to make these decisions with their medical providers,” says Congressman Roe. “I’ve been on both sides of these discussions – as a physician and a family member – and I know firsthand the peace of mind that comes with knowing a patient or loved one’s wishes. This bill will ensure patients, families and medical professionals have the resources and tools they need to navigate these sensitive but necessary conversations, and I am proud to partner with Congressman Blumenauer on this legislation.”
Please ask your Representatives to join Rep. Blumenauer and Rep. Roe in cosponsoring this bipartisan legislation!
