CHA has issued an alert urging Congress to support hospitals and their staff with additional financial relief during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

In support of this effort, last week CHA sent a letter to the California congressional delegation asking Congress to:  

  • Immediately distribute and replenish the Provider Relief Fund, which has not provided funding during the pandemic’s delta and omicron surges 
  • Provide additional time for repayment of Medicare Accelerated and Advance Payment Program loans 
  • Extend the delay in sequestration cuts at least for the duration of the public health emergency 
  • Address workforce shortages with policy solutions and funding   

The American Hospital Association (AHA) will host a Virtual Advocacy Day event on Feb. 1 for an additional opportunity to make sure members of Congress hear the hospital voice on these and other important issues. CHA encourages AHA members to register for this event.
