AHA Comments to Department of Labor on the Families First Coronavirus Response Act

AHA urges the Department of Labor to accurately define “health care provider” when promulgating regulations implementing key sections of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act and clarify how this policy will be operationalized, including how it interacts with state law. We applaud Congress and the Administration for steps already taken to assist hospitals as they help combat this public health emergency and ask that you provide further assistance to ensure that an adequate workforce will be available to care for our communities.
