Make It Personal
Rich Umbdenstock, AHA President and CEO
By month's end, Congress must vote on whether to eliminate the planned cuts to Medicare physician payments - and how to pay for it. We support eliminating the cuts . . . but not by reducing payments to hospitals. Alternatives to offset the costs clearly exist. On February 15, AHA will again host an Advocacy Day in Washington, a timely opportunity for your federal legislators to hear directly from you how proposals under consideration will affect your patients and your community. Together, we will present a united hospital voice and show that the people back home will speak up when real decisions are being made about our future. Make it personal; be here for AHA Advocacy Day February 15.
