AAA URGENT - CALL TO ACTION AND INFO

Contact Your Members of Congress Today on Ambulance Specific Funding!

Congress returned this week from recess and has three weeks in which to get another COVID relief package passed before their August recess.

Please contact your Senators and Representative today and ask that they advocate for a funding program under the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund specifically for the increased costs, loss of revenue and uncompensated care facing ground ambulance service organizations due to COVID-19.

Please e-mail your Senators and Representative today!

 It will take you only a few minutes per Congressional office to email a letter. Just follow these steps.

 1. USE LETTER TEMPLATE: CLICK HERE to access a draft letter. Please customize your letter including the cities and towns you serve, and any additional details as to services you are providing during the COVID-19 outbreak and the financial impact on your operation.

2. SEND LETTERS/EMAIL/PHONE CALLS TO MEMBERS

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 for the Department of Health and Human Services to allocate more funding to EMS under the $75 billion already appropriated to the PHSSEF through the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Assistance Act.

The AAA will continue to fight for our members as your operation and paramedic and EMTs are on the front lines of combating the Coronavirus.
