Have You Heard? (Summer 2022)

AuDvocates Advance MAASA During May’s Cyber Lobby Day: June Brings Opportunities to Grow Support
A huge thank-you to the 83 AuDvocates who signed in on May 11th for ADA Cyber Lobby Day and asked their members of Congress to sign on to co-sponsor the Medicare Audiologist Access and Services Act (MAASA)! Together, we made virtual visits to 77 Congressional offices and made the case for MAASA as an essential Medicare reform.

Better Hearing Month presented a perfect opportunity to plant the seeds for better access to audiology services for Medicare beneficiaries—and June brings opportunities to bring the heat and keep the momentum going to grow bi-partisan, bicameral support for H.R. 1587 and S. 1731.

You can take two minutes and two steps today to help move MAASA through Congress in this session.
  1. Contact your member of Congress using Congressional Connect. If you have already contacted your legislators, now is the perfect time to do it again.
  2. Donate to the Eric N. Hagberg Advocacy Fund. Your contribution will be used to cover ADA’s professional lobbyists in Washington D.C. so that they can continue to develop the strategies and relationships that protect and elevate the profession of audiology and patient care.
Visit www.chooseaudiology.org for more information about the Medicare Audiologist Access and Services Act and to complete Steps 1 and 2 above.
