Now is the time to help vulnerable residents in need
Tell Congress to give Long Term Care Pharmacies the resources they need and grant express Provider Relief Fund eligibility.
Long Term Care Pharmacies have answered the call to distribute the COVID vaccinations to at-risk seniors across the country. But this has caused a significant financial burden to these facilities, impacting their ability to serve their communities in the future. Granting access to the federal Provider Relief Fund, established by the CARES Act to assist healthcare providers in combating COVID-19, will equip Long Term Care Pharmacies with the resources needed to serve their residents and win the battle against the pandemic.
Ask your lawmakers to support a legislative fix for making Long Term Care Pharmacies eligible for the Provider Relief Fund.
MHA and its member pharmacies have been on the front lines of vaccine distribution. Long Term Care Pharmacies continue to assist some of the nation’s most vulnerable, disadvantaged, and rural citizens and the healthcare providers that service them through the rapid, effective deployment of vaccines within the MHA network. This critical part of the nation’s health and vaccine infrastructure must not be overlooked.
Long Term Care Pharmacies need a congressional solution to the growing financial and logistical burden they face. With your help, we can ensure faster deployment and better clinical support for those who need it most during this crisis.
