WASHINGTON – FAH President and CEO Chip Kahn issued the following statement reacting to the House of Representatives passing the coronavirus response package:
“It is gratifying that Congress is moving with dispatch to address the COVID-19 crisis, and the Federation of American Hospital supports these great efforts.
"Waiving patient copayments and cost-sharing for COVID-19 testing, and providing funding for uninsured Americans, are vital steps toward ensuring that all patients can depend on seamless and timely access to necessary testing.
"There is still much to do to address the pressing needs of ill patients and prepare for the possibility of a surge. We will continue to work with Congress as we all strive to overcome the challenges ahead."
