Support physician practices affected by COVID-19!
Across the country, otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeons have made the necessary sacrifices to care for their patients, including those with COVID-19, conserve resources, and comply with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' guidance on postponing elective surgeries. As a result, practices are feeling the significant financial strain from the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
The support and action of Congress is needed now to ensure the viability of the physician workforce. Without this support, many practices and health systems will face even more furloughs, layoffs, and indefinite closures which threaten physicians’ ability to provide patient care in both the near and long term.
The AAO-HNS needs your help! As the Senate works toward constructing a fourth Coronavirus relief package, the Academy continues to advocate for our members and the patients you serve. Use this form to help convey to your Senators that otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeons need immediate support and continued intervention by the federal government.
