Urgent: Only a few days left to act on the HRSA
Provider Relief Funds reporting deadline extension
Due largely to advocacy by the American Medical Association, Colorado Medical Society and other medical societies, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) will reopen the reporting time for recipients of Period 1 Provider Relief Funds. Physicians who received more than $10,000 in provider relief funds and failed to submit their period 1 report should act immediately. Between now and Friday, April 22, 2022, at 11:59 pm ET, providers who have not submitted their Period 1 report may submit a late Reporting Period 1 report request.
Are you interested in interviewing local candidates in primaries and/or general elections?
ADEMS is in the process of hosting candidate interviews with our physicians for the 2022 open legislative seats in ADEMS catchment area. As you may know, the COMPAC Board coordinates with ADEMS on the scheduling of these interviews and offers us a great opportunity for our area physicians and legislative candidates to meet and discuss priority healthcare issues. COMPAC provides a candidate handbook containing information and interview questions on the issues, as well as helps ADEMS host candidate interviews for the primaries and again for the general election for open legislative seats in districts within our catchment area. ADEMS is seeking an additional 3-6 physicians interested in participating in these interviews via Zoom. If you are interested, Zoom meetings are being scheduled in the evenings now through mid-May and then start up again in August for the general election. Please email Andrea Chase at ADEMSstaff@gmail.com for further details and information. Thank you!
