ASCVPR Annual Conference Cancelled
3/16/2020 UPDATE: In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, the ASCVPR has decided to cancel our Annual Conference which was scheduled for April 4, 2020.
Given the uncertainty of this pandemic, it was decided with great thought and careful assessment that we all need to focus on our priorities on family, the safety of our membership, our patients, and the greater community.
We are NO LONGER planning on a web-based platform for this conference.
For those who have registered for our Annual Conference, your registration fees will be refunded.

Holly and Janelle went to Washington, DC to participate on the Day on the Hill event and help our legislators to understand the importance of US House Bill HR 4838. See pictures from their trip here.

11/25/2019 Health Policy & Reimbursement Updates from AACVPR
AACVPR Members Please Take Action!
AACVPR members are demonstrating an understanding of the importance of improving access for cardiac and pulmonary patients and the financial necessity to expand space and capacity without being forced to take a 40%+ cut in reimbursement.
To date, over 1,974 letters, tweets, and Facebook posts have been sent to US House of Representatives members, asking for support of HR 4838. ! This request is coming from CR and PR practitioners, physician champions and medical directors, hospital administrations, and most importantly, patients who are grateful they received the benefits of cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitation and want others to have the same opportunity. Template letters that can be personalized are posted for each of these groups.
A companion bill will soon be introduced in the US Senate. You’ll then be asked to send a letter to each of your two US Senators, again utilizing an AACVPR template letter, personalizing it as you wish.
With enough support in Congress over the next 2-3 weeks, this bill could even conceivably be attached to a larger, year-end Medicare package. Every Congressional sponsor name on this bill is valuable.
Thank you for all you’re doing for your profession and for your patients.
Please click the button below to go to the AACVPR Website to fill in the letter to your legislator.
