  • NASEMSO Joins 55 Stakeholders to Urge a Balanced Approach to Deficit Reduction that Does Not Include Further Cuts to Non-defense Discretionary Programs (08/02/12) NASEMSO joined Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs and a total of 55 stakeholders in signing onto a letter to Members of Congress urging them to act to avoid sequestration, currently scheduled to take effect on Jan. 2, 2013, in a way that fully protects the health of women, children and their families. The letter notes: "The 55 undersigned organizations, dedicated to improving the health of women, children and their families, agree fully with the many members of Congress from both parties who have expressed their opinion that sequestration would be devastating to the nation. We strongly urge a balanced approach to deficit reduction that does not include further cuts to non-defense discretionary programs; these critically important programs have already done their part to reduce the deficit ... Sequestration would eliminate nearly one billion dollars in federal funding for research and programs designed to promote and protect the health of women and children – jeopardizing the progress we have made in addressing many of the most serious health and medical challenges facing our county – including infant mortality, preterm birth, injuries and childhood obesity." Coalition letter
     
  • NASEMSO Joins Stakeholders to Raise Awareness of Drug Shortages for Patients of Pre-Hospital EMS Agencies (04/05/12) NASEMSO, along with six other stakeholder organizations, sent a letter to the Chairman and Ranking Member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions, and to the Chairman and Ranking Member of the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce, to raise awareness that drug shortages are at a crisis level for patients of pre-hospital emergency medical services (EMS) agencies across the United States. To date, very little attention has been focused upon the negative impact that this national health and preparedness crisis has had on EMS systems and our patients. The coalition requested that the Commitee on Energy and Commerce continue to work on drug shortage legislation and specifically improve access of life-saving, not just life-sustaining, medications emergency patients receive through EMS agencies before delays and disruptions in patient care become more widespread with adverse consequences. Coalition letters: U.S. Senate | U.S. House
     
  • NASEMSO Joins Stakeholders in Support of Funding for the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Program (03/20/12) NASEMSO, along with 18 other stakeholder organizations, sent a letter to the Chairman and Ranking Member of the U.S. House Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Related Agencies, in support of funding of $28,940,625 for the EMSC program at the Health Resources and Services Administration in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Labor, HHS, Education appropriations bill. Coalition letter
     
  • NASEMSO Joins Stakeholders in Support of the CMS Health Care Innovations Challenge Grants (01/31/12) NASEMSO, along with eight other stakeholder organizations, sent a letter to Richard J. Gilfillan, M.D, Director of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid
    CMS Innovation Center, in support of the CMS Health Care Innovations Challenge Grants. The organizations also offered their collective expertise and resources to CMS, noting that possible roles for their participation could range from expert content grant reviewers to grant implementation support.
