(June 26, 2020) – The American Hospital Association is scheduling a virtual advocacy day at 1 p.m. on June 30. As Congress considers additional COVID-19 relief actions, hospitals will need to make sure our priorities are at the top of the list. The focus will be on the Senate members. As part of the event, participants will hear from AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack and AHA Executive Vice President Tom Nickels. They will give the latest updates on the next COVID-19 relief package and provide resources and ways you can engage with your lawmakers virtually.
Among other issues, they will discuss the need for Congress to:
- Provide additional federal support for our health care heroes;
- Enact full forgiveness of Medicare accelerated payments for hospitals;
- Maintain health benefits for individuals and families, and increase coverage
options for those who are uninsured; and
- Grant appropriate liability protections to front-line medical providers and facilities.
AHA members must register by 4 p.m. on June 29 in order to participate in this AHA members-only event.
After you register, you will receive an email with instructions for accessing the June 30 event.
