CHA Encourages Members to Attend Hospital Advocacy Days in Nation’s Capital

To help spread the message that California hospitals cannot withstand additional payment cuts, CHA is partnering with its colleagues at the American Hospital Association to host advocacy days in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 29 and Dec. 11. Following the November elections, Congress will confront several deadlines for programs that will significantly impact hospitals.

Tax cuts, the sustainable growth rate for physicians, sequestration and other deficit-reduction efforts will be on the table, making Medicare and Medicaid spending very vulnerable. It is important for legislators to hear directly from hospital leaders about the challenges facing their patients and communities. Additional information regarding meeting times and locations, as well as hotel reservations, is attached. RSVP to Megan Howard with CHA at or (202) 488-3740.
