Action Alert – Provide Funding to Hospitals and Health Systems as Part of Coronavirus Spending Package

Contact Your Senators, Representative and Urge Them to Provide $100 Billion in Funding to Hospitals and Health Systems as Part of Coronavirus Spending Package

Leaders from the Senate, House and Administration are working on proposals for a third spending package related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). While legislative language has not been formally unveiled yet, a package is expected to come together very quickly.

Please contact your senators and representative today and ask them to allocate $100 billion to front line health care personnel and providers – including hospitals, health systems, physicians and nurses – and direct the federal agencies to begin to infuse funds immediately so that providers can afford to take the necessary steps to combat COVID-19.

See the letter sent today to congressional leaders by the AHA, American Medical Association and American Nurses Association.
