ACR Virtual Hill Day Reaches More than 150 Offices

November 18, 2022

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) Government Relations Department held a micro-targeted virtual Hill Day Nov. 16–17 for radiologists whose members of Congress serve on congressional committees with jurisdiction over healthcare issues. In total, more than 100 attendees participated in meetings reaching more than 150 congressional offices. The main issues covered during the meetings were addressing proposed Medicare cuts (H.R. 8800) and garnering support in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate for the Protecting Access to Lifesaving Screenings (PALS) Act of 2021 (H.R. 4612 & S. 2412). 

ACR continues to work​ with its provider coalition of more than 100 organizations to get Congress to address these issues before the end of 2022.
