AAHAM actively represents the interest of health care administrators through a comprehensive program of legislative and regulatory monitoring, participation in industry groups and issue management.
From AAHAM’s National Headquarters in Washington, D.C. the hearings of selected Senate and House committees are monitored for legislative trends and emerging bills on health care finance issues. Regulations and rule changes are tracked through consultation with the Health Care Financing Administration and other government and industry sources.
Condensed into brief news capsules, this vital information is disseminated to AAHAM members in the national newsletter, Legislative Currents, published eight times per year. Currents plays a key role in helping health care administrators stay on the cutting edge of their field.
By participating in industry groups such as the American National Standards Institute and National Uniform Billing Committee, AAHAM is a major force in shaping the future of health care administrative management.
An active national Legislative Committee and nationwide cadre of local legislative chairpersons enable AAHAM to react quickly and broadly to public policy initiatives. This network of experience health care administrative management professionals stands ready to interact with legislators and their staffs to represent the views of AAHAM and its members.
