National Pain Care Policy Act of 2003

Posted by Sharon W on 5/22/03 at 09:02 (119609)

This bill, H.R.1863, introduced April 29, 2003 to the House of Representatives, by Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI) is an important step forward for those of us with chronic pain. It recognizes how important pain is in health care and acknowledges that pain is a critical and so far unanswered problem that needs to be dealt with.

Here's a link for the bill that was introduced (on Adobe Acrobat):


It's important for those of us who care about this issue to contact our congressmen and let them know how we feel.
