Primary care physicians all across the country are working overtime to care for their communities and keep their patients and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. These practices are essential for maintaining population health and should not have to spend time navigating bureaucratic red tape to get the financial assistance they need to stay open. Our team at Aledade is committed to advocating for the protection of these independent primary care practices.
Check out the stories of practices across the country, find the latest policy and advocacy updates, and make an immediate impact by calling on Congress to support primary care.
It's time for Congress to protect primary care.
Join us in calling on Congress to ensure that future financial support for primary care is streamlined and simple, and that it can't be used to buy up independent practices, so our primary care heroes can focus on the fight against COVID-19.
