Welcome to the ADVION Issue & Advocacy Center

Mounting public and private pressure to restructure the nation's healthcare delivery system, a growing number of elderly Americans and limited financial resources have created an uncertain environment for long term and post acute care providers. 

ADVION's advocacy efforts serve to provide your organization with the knowledge and tools necessary to ensure that your voice is heard in the congressional health care debate. The role of an informed constituent is a crucial one; you have the expertise and the local knowledge to provide valuable information to your legislators.

ADVION encourages members to become involved - whether it's by scheduling a meeting with your elected representative, writing a letter, or making a phone call.




A bipartisan coalition of doctors in Congress recently  introduced the Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act (H.R. 2474), which would add a permanent payment update to the Medicare PFS to address the annual payment uncertainty affecting Medicare-participating practitioners under the Medicare PFS.

Medicare payment cuts threaten access to clinical laboratory services and undermine our nation’s health care infrastructure.  ADVION needs all of our advocates to reach out to their Members of Congress today and tell them to protect Medicare patients and enact the Saving Access to Laboratory Services Act (SALSA) (H.R.2377/S. 1000).
