Ad Campaign Highlights Impact of Proposed Hospital Cuts

The Coalition to Protect America’s Health Care  is running an extensive three-day ad campaign, beginning Dec. 14,  to fight proposed legislation that would cut hospital funding as part of an effort to restore Medicare payments to physicians. The print ad states, “…cutting billions of dollars from hospital care to pay for a physician payment fix is wrong and irresponsible…and will result in fewer nurses, longer waits for emergency care and less access to care and new treatments.”

For more information on the proposed legislation and its impact on California hospitals, see Dec. 9 CHA Advocacy Alert (available for members only). For more information on the ad campaign, see the attached ad or visit the coalition’s website at  www.protecthealthcare.org.
