America’s Hospitals and Nursing Homes Urge Against Unfunded Staffing Mandate

April 3, 2023

In a  joint letter, the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the American Health Care Association (AHCA) urged Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure against unfunded federal staffing mandates ahead of the administration’s anticipated regulation. The groups warned that an unfunded mandate would put seniors’ access to care at further risk and exacerbate capacity issues for hospitals.
