Friday September 20, 2019 is NASH Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C.
Today, leaders of private safety-net hospitals have traveled to the nation’s capital from across the country for NASH Advocacy Day, during which members will meet with members of Congress and congressional and committee staff to discuss federal health care policy issues that affect the ability of private safety-net hospitals to serve their communities.
For the occasion, NASH has introduced three new policy position statements: on the importance of delaying Medicaid disproportionate share (Medicaid DSH) cuts, surprise medical bills, and the new federal regulation governing so-called public charges. See the new position papers here.
In addition, the National Alliance of Safety-Net Hospitals is presenting its “Champion for Health Care Award” to Representative Joe Kennedy III (D-MA) for “his tireless advocacy of access to care for his constituents, the residents of Massachusetts, and all Americans.” See the news release announcing the award here.
