RAs Take Action Day!
Monday, May 21st, 2018
Leaders of the SRPE will be in Washington DC. on May 21st to inform Congress about HR 1904/ S 769 Medicare Access to Radiology Care Act (MARCA). We would like to ask Radiologist Assistants (RAs -RRA and RPA certified) to make appointments at their local U.S. Representatives’ and Senators’ offices on May 21st and ask them to cosponsor HR 1904/ S 769.
- Lookup who your Senators and Representative here.
- Contact his or her local office for an appointment. If you can not get an appointment on May 21st, try for an appointment after Memorial Day when the Member is back in his or her district.
- Make folders to give to staffers. You can find instructions, talking points, and documents to place in your folders here.
- Get your friends, family, and coworkers to write, tweet, and call to support HR1904/S769.
Veteran Affairs Recognition of the RA
The VA is almost complete with the process to recognize the RA in the VA Health System. The qualifications and standards are in the process of being approved. Once approved, the standards and qualifications will be made public and the individual health facilities can then hire the RA. The SRPE will notify the community when the documents are made public and then RAs would then need to approach the radiologists and the facility to start the job posting process.
