Alert: Contact Your Senators and Representative, and Urge Them to Provide Additional Funding for Hospitals and Health Systems to Support Efforts to Fight COVID-19

Leaders from the Senate, House and Administration are poised to discuss proposals for the next COVID-19 relief package to combat the pandemic.

It is urgent that you contact your senators and representative today and urge them to provide additional funding of at least $100 billion for hospitals and health systems — and their dedicated caregivers — as part of the package.

It is imperative that hospitals and health systems receive additional funds to help with the care they are providing to COVID-19 patients and additional expenses they are incurring as a result of COVID-19. Watch for more details from the AHA on the timing and specifics of the legislative package.

In addition, the AHA continues to urge the Administration to distribute as soon as possible to hospitals and health systems emergency funds through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. The Department of Health and Human Services distributed the initial round of funding last Friday.
