Please join RCPA in supporting this important legislation.
Message from Michael Gamel-McCormick:
Senators Casey, Wyden and Schumer, along with Senators Murray, Duckworth, Brown and Hassan, and Representatives Dingell, Pallone, Schakowsky and Matsui will soon introduce the bicameral Better Care Better Jobs Act. The Better Care Better Jobs Act will make President Biden’s bold vision to expand home and community-based services (HCBS) infrastructure, a key component of the American Jobs Plan, a reality.
If your organization would like to be listed as a supporting organization of the bill, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope that your organization will support this transformative piece of legislation. Thank you.

RCPA is working with the legislature, which is working with the governor’s office, to finalize an application process that would allow for an extension from the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP)/the Department of Human Services (DHS) in substantially aligning with the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), including the PA-specific requirements. The extensions would be approved for up to six months to December 31, 2021.
We will continue to keep you updated on this process. Email Jason Snyder, Director, Drug & Alcohol Division, with questions.
