Contact your Members of Congress and the President Today!
Congress and the White House are still working on the details of another funding package for COVID-19 economic relief. As they negotiate on a package, it is critical now more than ever that you contact your Senators and Representative as well as President Trump and ask them to support increased funding for ambulance service providers under the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund or "Provider Relief Fund" specifically for the increased costs, loss of revenue, and uncompensated care facing ground ambulance service organizations due to COVID-19.
The AAA is pleased to announce our new advocacy software: VoterVoice. With just a few clicks, you can contact your Senators and Representative as well as the President. Just follow these steps:
- FILL OUT YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION: This will automatically ensure your message goes to the correct Members of Congress.
- PERSONALIZE YOUR MESSAGE: Edit the template letters to include information about how your organization is responding to the pandemic and the challenges you face.
- CLICK SEND: Your message will go to your three Members of Congress and you will receive a confirmation email.
In addition to advocating for Congress to include funding specifically for ground ambulance services in the next COVID-19 economic relief package, the AAA is pressing the President for the Department of Health and Human Services to allocate more funding to ambulance services by tapping the $50 billion in unspent funds still available under the Provider Relief Fund.
The AAA will continue to fight for our paramedics and EMTs on the front lines of combating the Coronavirus.
