Special Video Message from Rich Umbdenstock

As the Congress prepares to make important decisions that could affect patient care, AHA President and CEO Rich Umbdenstock and other hospital leaders suggest you ask the following:

  • Are you satisfied with the Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements your hospital receives?
  • Can you take additional cuts?
  • Do you trust Washington to do everything possible to keep hospitals strong?

If your answer is a resounding “no,” please view this special video presentation with actions you can take now to protect patient care by supporting the Coalition to Protect America’s Health Care.

In addition, the Coalition has extended for another week placement of its 30-second TV spot providing public reaction that additional cuts in payments for hospital services are not a good idea. The ad will appear on national cable and on Washington, D.C., local broadcast stations March 24-30. To view the ad and the schedule of ad placements, please go to the Coalition’s online newsroom. The new TV ad amplifies the strong online and print presence created by the Coalition over the past year, and invites viewers to call Congress and/or log on to the Coalition website at www.protecthealthcare.org to take action.
