* WHY DO WE NEED THE NINE DIGIT ZIP CODE OF CRC’S?
1. Because most legislators prefer or will only accept correspondence from New Yorkers living in their district. We may call upon certain CRC’s to relay advocacy emails or letters to those legislators. Specifically, Assembly person Deborah J. Glick, District 66, Chair of the NYS Assembly Higher Education Committee where our licensure bill is housed.
2. 9 digit zipcodes offer the most accuracy when looking for NYS legislators representing New Yorkers in our Capital (Washington, D.C.) for other CRC Advocacy campaigns (WIA, VA, DOL, RSA legislation).
3. Even if CRC’s become licensed in NYS, advocacy and legislation is further needed to obtain laws allowing for third party billing of rehabilitation services – in all areas including individual services, managed care and health care reform.
2,161 New York ZIP Codes, how many CRC’s in each zip code…?
