ACA Action Alert:  Call Your Senators Now!

The Alaska Chiropractic Society became aware of this important piece of legislation before the US Senate to assist our chiropractic providers during this emergency situation.  We strongly urge you to ACT NOW and contact your Alaska Senators.  See details below on how you can assist.  

Here's a link to the Bill text if you would like to read more.  

From the ACA:  Senators Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) and John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) have introduced the Immediate Relief for Rural Facilities and Providers Act, new legislation to address the impending crisis facing our health care system as the spread of COVID-19 increasingly strains hospitals and providers across the country. Bennet and Barrasso’s new legislation would extend a lifeline to rural hospitals, and all providers and the millions of Americans who depend on them for health care.
Among help for rural hospitals, the Bennet/Barrasso legislation will:

  • Provide Stabilization and Relief for all Providers, including chiropractors with an emergency, one-time grant for all providers and ambulatory surgery centers equal to their total payroll from January 1 - April 1, 2019
  • Provide Funding for all Physicians and Providers, including chiropractors by authorizing the Small Business Administration to provide low interest loans to providers and ambulatory surgery centers at a 0.25% interest rate that will not accrue until two years after the COVID-19 pandemic has ended.

What you need to do: Call or email our Alaska Senators and ask them "to include the Immediate Relief for Rural Facilities and Providers Act, sponsored by Senators Bennet and Barrasso, in the current Senate COVID-19 relief package."
