Message from AAOE:
You may have seen in the last issue of “Coffey Talk” that AAOE and similar organizations are pushing to have a new exception to the meaningful use program added into the omnibus budget legislation currently being negotiated in the halls of Congress. While staff is working with members of the House Committee on Appropriations to get this included, we need your help. The more co-sponsors the legislation creating the new exception has, the more likely it is to be included in the omnibus.
PLEASE, write your Representative and ask that they co-sponsor HR 3940 – The Meaningful Use Hardship Relief Act of 2015. Simply follow this link and TAKE ACTION.
Thank you for taking a few minutes to write your legislators. AAOE will keep you updated through Coffey Talk from the Hill and The OrthoActivist on this issue as it continues to develop.
