Take Action!

In a letter to Congressional leadership, ACC advocated for these policies to be included in the fourth COVID-19 relief package:

  • Ensure stability of medical practices
  • Provide ongoing flexibility and appropriate payment for telehealth
  • Provide resources for PPE and reliable testing
  • Include the Coronavirus Provider Protection (CARES) Act
  • Alleviate burdens of prior authorization
  • Defer administrative programs including MIPS requirements and AUC

Please urge Congress to support cardiovascular clinicians, their patients, and the entire health care system.  It takes less than a minute!
