Still Time to Register for Advocacy Days in D.C.

CHA encourages members to register for an upcoming advocacy day in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 11. CHA is partnering with its colleagues at the American Hospital Association to host this events and help spread the message that California hospitals cannot withstand additional payment cuts. With the election over, Congress has returned to confront several deadlines for programs that will significantly impact hospitals.

During the lame-duck session, tax cuts, the sustainable growth rate for physicians, sequestration and other deficit-reduction efforts will be considered, 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.
