Many thanks to our members who joined us on February 9th for our annual lobby day. Members met with legislators virtually to discuss a nurse practitioner scope of practice bill (oppose HB 1245), to encourage them to maintain adequate reimbursement for Medicaid in the state budget and to continue to fund the Virginia Mental Health Access Program (VMAP) in the state budget.
Thank you also to James Pickral, lobbyist, for briefing us on the issues! If you've never attended a radiology Lobby Day, please consider joining us next year (hopefully in person!) and see for yourself how the wheels of democracy turn!
