Dear [Decision Maker],
Please co-sponsor H.R. 8206, the Promoting Effective and Empowering Recovery Services (PEERS) in Medicare Act of 2020. H.R. 8206 was introduced in the House of Representatives to promote the use of peer support specialists as part of integrated care teams in Medicare. More specifically, H.R. 8206 would recognize certified peer specialists for the first time in Medicare and would ensure reimbursement of support services provided by peer specialists as part of coordinated care teams that work together to provide the best mental and physical healthcare and support for an individual based on his or her unique needs.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
