AAA Spearheads Medicare Provider Letter
Supporting Add-ons Extension

The AAA spearheaded a letter by a coalition of Medicare providers urging congressional leaders to pass a Medicare provider extender package by January 19. This is part of the AAA’s ongoing efforts to ensure that the Medicare ambulance add-ons are extended as soon as possible.

Many thanks to John Jonas and the team at Akin Gump for taking the lead on reaching out to other Medicare provider organizations. The AAA was able to secure the support of twenty organizations on the letter and the letter has been to congressional leaders as well as all congressional offices.
