Tell Congress to Support the XR Industry

The XRAction Center supported by the XR Association provides a tool to communicate with your members of Congress about issues important to the XR industry.

Take XRAction: Co-Sponsor H.Res.1399 to Officially Designate November as National XR Month

Tell your member of Congress to co-sponsor H.Res.1399 to officially designate the month of November as “National XR Month.” This resolution was recently introduced by co-chairs of the Congressional Caucus on Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality Technologies (“Reality Caucus”), including Representatives Darrell Issa (CA-50), Suzan DelBene (WA-01), Yvette Clarke (NY-9) and Ted Lieu (CA-33).

This resolution highlights the positive impacts of XR in fields like manufacturing, workforce training and development, education, health care, and more. It also establishes November 2022 as “National XR Month” to promote the development of this important technology, recognizing that XR is a critical part of the emerging technology ecosystem of the future.

Securing additional co-sponsors for H.Res.1399 will help expand support for the XR industry among policymakers.

Take XRAction: Tell Your Member of Congress to Join the House Reality Caucus

The Congressional Caucus on Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality Technologies – better known as the “Reality Caucus” — was founded in 2017 to help members of Congress learn more about XR, get hands-on experience with the technology, and hear from experts about public policy initiatives to support the industry’s growth.

Encourage your House Member to join the Reality Caucus and support the XR industry!

Take XRAction: Tell Congress to Support Medicare Reimbursement for XR-Based Therapy

The bipartisan and bicameral legislation, proposed by Reps. Mike Thompson (CA-05) and David McKinley (WV-01) and Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (NH) and Shelly Moore Capito (WV), would expand Medicare and Medicaid coverage to include prescription digital therapeutics (PDTx), which are software-based treatments, including software for immersive technology, used to prevent, treat, and manage diseases. The legislation would officially define prescription digital therapeutics (PDTx) at the federal level and establish new Medicare benefit categories for PDTs, improving healthcare access for more than 148 million Americans.

Tell your member of Congress to co-sponsor the Access to Prescription Digital Therapeutics Act of 2022 (S.3791/H.R.7051), which would provide Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement for XR software therapeutics!
