Urge Congress to Increase Support for Physicians

Family physicians continue to play an essential role in our nation's public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the virus spreads, the pressures on family physicians will only increase. Many practices are facing severe shortages of equipment and supplies, and most are starting to feel the financial strains of the pandemic. It is critical that congressional leaders take action to support America's frontline physicians by ensuring they have the equipment, supplies and financial resources needed to keep them operating.

We urge you to join us in urging lawmakers to do their part to provide family physicians the support they need to be successful in responding to COVID-19. The AAFP Speak Out tool is available for all family physicians to use. Speak Out link --

Telehealth Benefits Expanded for Medicare Beneficiaries
There are rapid changes being made to telehealth amid the COVID-19 outbreak. It was recently announced that telehealth benefits have been expanded for Medicare beneficiaries. The change will enable beneficiaries to receive a wider range of health care services without having to travel to a health care facility. Medicare will temporarily pay physicians and other health care providers to provide telehealth services for beneficiaries residing across the country. For more information, please view the fact sheet and frequently asked questions documents.
