NASH Seeks Assistance With COVID-19 Needs

Provide special assistance to private safety-net hospitals to help them serve their communities during the COVID-19 national health emergency, NASH has asked in a letter to Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and minority leader Charles Schumer.

In particular, NASH asked the Senate leaders to include three things in future COVID-19/stimulus legislation:

  1. Funding to ensure cash flow for hospitals that are investing heavily in anticipation of a major influx of challenging patients while foregoing revenue from elective procedures.
  2. The permanent elimination of Affordable Care Act-mandated cuts in Medicaid disproportionate share (Medicaid DSH) funding.
  3. Protection from any new, burdensome regulations in any legislation adopted to facilitate the fight against COVID-19.
