Although we have asked you on several occasions this year to reach out to members of Congress on our Medicare bill, it is critically important that we maintain a steady flow of messages over the next few weeks when key congressional non-defense spending decisions will be made.
It is the view of several lobbyists that the best chance for passage of our Medicare bill is during this current lame-duck session of Congress.
If our bill does not pass in this congressional session, we would need to begin the process anew in 2023 with a divided Congress, where it could be difficult to pass significant mental health legislation.
