CHA Joins Provider Groups in Calling for GME Expansion

On July 9, we joined 60 allied health care groups in sending a letter to congressional leaders urging the inclusion of the Resident Physician Shortage Reduction Act of 2019 in upcoming COVID-19 emergency supplemental legislation. The bill would increase the number of Medicare-supported GME slots by 3,000 per year for five years, for a total of 15,000 new slots. Additional training slots are needed and would help providers respond to public health emergencies like COVID-19.
