This is a "Member Only"
event. CHA is delighted to welcome ministry advocates and
system mission leaders to Washington this fall to engage in joint meetings and
visits with our respective members of Congress to highlight the advocacy
priorities of the Catholic health ministry.
As Congress works to wrap up the budget and appropriations
process this fall, we anticipate that several of those priorities will be
considered during the legislative action. Advocacy Days will feature discussions
of the FY2024 budget and health programs including Medicare and Medicaid, the
vital role Catholic health care plays in ensuring access to affordable coverage
and quality care, and issues of particular concern for Catholic health care
We look forward to having ministry advocates and system
mission leaders in Washington to emphasize our unique role to elected officials
and their staff.
