Government Relations

Support, Foster, Expand & Defend

Government Relations and Political Advocacy are core Mission points for AABCP.

The American Association of Breast Care Professionals exists to Defend the ability for post mastectomy fitters and other breast care professionals to appropriately treat breast cancer survivors. Post mastectomy services are a unique specialty within healthcare that are generally misunderstood. These misunderstandings, while stemming from a variety of factors, foster myths about the very real need for these vital and lifelong services.

AABCP represents the best interests of post mastectomy professionals at all levels of government including Local, State, Federal, appearing before various Agencies and providing education to Private Insurers.

AABCP tracks legislation and regulatory issues that could have a affect on the profession. The Association testifies at hearings, introduces legislation and proposes rules changes that would protect the provision of quality care.

As laws continue to change, AABCP continues to bear witness to multi-faceted attempts at the erosion of breast cancer survivor benefits, thus we are proud that our efforts protect both post mastectomy professionals and the individuals who need these services.
