Online Registration Now Open for HANYS’ Federal Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C.
Registration has begun for HANYS’ 2011 Federal Briefing and Congressional Advocacy Day, which will be held April 12 and 13 in Washington, D.C., in conjunction with the American Hospital Association’s Annual Membership Meeting.
HANYS encourages members to come to Washington to urge the New York State Congressional Delegation to stand firm in opposition to reducing Medicare and Medicaid funding in the federal fiscal year 2012 budget and to work with New York hospitals and health systems to improve the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and ease implementation of the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record incentive program.
Highlights of the two-day event include meetings with members of the New York State Congressional Delegation, HANYS’ Federal Briefing, and dinner at the Mayflower Hotel with featured speaker Pulitzer-Prize winning biweekly Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson.
HANYS encourages members to register now to allow ample time to coordinate congressional visits. In anticipation of these meetings, HANYS encourages members to take advantage of its recently-released federal issues papers, published on HANYS’ newly redesigned Health Care Reform Navigator Web site.
