The urgent care industry has continued to play a pivotal role during the pandemic and on Tuesday, March 2nd UCA hosted a Congressional Briefing to educate members of Congress and staffers on our top legislative priorities. Urgent care industry speakers representing centers throughout the country discussed industry challenges around testing reimbursement, procuring the COVID-19 vaccine, PPE, staffing and some legislative actions that Congress can take to support the industry.
In addition, UCA members advocated on behalf of the industry by scheduling virtual visits, making phone calls and sending letters on UCA Lobby Day – March 3rd. Thank you to everyone who participated in Lobby Day activities!
