Working for you in Olympia!
AAPPN’s Legislative and Rules committees, as well as our lobbyists, are working hard to protect your profession and the health of all Washingtonians.
AAPPN advocated for a number of bills signed into law this year. Our legislative efforts resulted in more opportunities for psychiatric ARNPs and stronger mental health protection for our citizens.
AAPPN contacted each member of the committee on January 21 to urge committee passage of the bill. We joined with NAMI Washington in this collaborative effort. Our voices were joined by other health care advocate organizations listed below.

Health insurers have arbitrarily reduced reimbursement for ARNP services down to just 85% of their usual rates. In his Seattle Times op/ed Dr. Benjamin Danielson argues that inequities in reimbursement rates lead to inequities in care.
There is strength in numbers, and we need you to join in the effort!
AAPPN is proud to support two vital efforts which will grow the future of our profession and protect mental health care in our communities.
