Hospital Associations Oppose Financial Offsets in Infrastructure Framework
The American Hospital Association and other hospital lobbying bodies have written the Biden Administration to express their concerns over the potential financial offsets included in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework released in late June. The framework proposes to use an extension of Medicare sequestration as one of the major funding sources for the $1.2 trillion package. The framework would also repurpose unspent funds from the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), using them to offset infrastructure costs.
