Join us today in the fight for changes to the Center Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed rule governing OPOs to ensure fair treatment and an opportunity for continual performance improvement.

Here is how to get involved:

  1. Make an appointment, either virtual or in-person, with your Member of Congress while they are home for the August recess.
    -
    Below is the current AOPO Congressional Staff Directory to connect you with your Member of Congress’ district or state staff person.

    -
    Use the Sample Meeting Request Email resource provided below to request a meeting.

    Contact Strategic Health Care (SHC) for scheduling assistance with your member of Congress. 

    Use the Metrics Talking Points below to inform your Member of Congress about concerns with the OPO regulations proposed by CMS.

    Be sure to close the meeting by requesting your Senator or Representative to contact the Department of Health and Human Services to raise your concerns using the Sample Congressional Letter to HSS below.

  2. Get your communities involved with our advocacy efforts by encouraging them to send an email raising these concerns with their Members of Congress on the AOPO TakeAction website. Encourage OPO staff, donor families, transplant recipients, and other donation and transplantation partners to participate.
