The Coalition to Protect America’s Health Care, of which the AHA is a founding member, today launched a national television ad urging Congress to reverse Medicare cuts and provide additional COVID-19 relief. 

“The delta and omicron surges flooded hospitals with record cases putting more pressure on front-line workers,” the ad notes. “Hospitals face workforce shortages that threaten patient care while supply chains and skyrocketing inflation drive up costs. Congress must act to reverse Medicare cuts and provide additional COVID relief.”

The campaign will include digital ads and a social media push.
