We The Patients Fly-In Travel Reimbursement

Travel Reimbursement Information for Patients Rising Now’s We The Patients Fly-In 2023

Travel Reimbursement Qualifications

We have a limited travel reimbursement budget. In order to be considered for a travel reimbursement award you must meet the following criteria:

  • Attend the We The Patients Fly-In 2023 on June 12 and 13th, 2023, all sessions, each day. Our Fly-in hotel is the Kimpton George Hotel
  • The Policy Events on June 12th help advocates learn about the legislative process, as well as the legislative priorities for this Fly-in, and is mandatory for travel reimbursement to be considered. 
  • Attend Hill meetings with your group, which will include meetings with your representatives whenever possible. These meetings will take place in person on Capitol Hill and will be scheduled for you by Patients Rising Now. You will receive your schedule at the Fly-In kick-off meeting.
  • Submit travel expense receipts (airline or train tickets or gas and mileage if driving, hotel/lodging) for IRS purposes. You can submit the receipts to: wethepatients@patientsrising.org 

You will receive a check for your travel reimbursement at Congressional Reception on June 13th so be sure to keep an eye out for the table marked ‘Travel Reimbursement’ upon check-in. We are not able to distribute a check prior to the event as we will need verification that you are present. This travel reimbursement is not transferable.

You are responsible for making your own travel arrangements to Washington, DC and your hotel and lodging reservations. We do have a block of rooms at the Kimpton George that are available on a first come first serve basis. The link to register at the event hotel is provided here. We have provided some details on traveling to DC. We recommend booking travel and lodging that is flexible and refundable should your plans change.

If you had a change in plans and are no longer able to attend We The Patients Fly-In on Capitol Hill, please let us know as soon as possible so we can offer the travel reimbursement to another advocate on the waitlist as soon as possible.
