Government Affairs

Unique Opportunity to Make a Difference

ASCLS and 25 other healthcare groups have continued to call on Congressional leaders for the passage of the Saving Access to Laboratory Services Act (SALSA/H.R. 2377/S.1000). More information about SALSA is available at www.stoplabcuts.org

Please check out this website for more information about this critical issue.

We invite you to support the Stop Lab Cuts campaign on Thursday, September 21, for a “Day of Action” urging Congress to enact SALSA this year.
Here’s how you can support the SALSA Day of Action on September 21:
1. Take two minutes to visit StopLabCuts.org and Take Action to let your member of Congress know that protecting access to clinical laboratory services is important to you.
2. Share your support for SALSA on social media (X, formerly known as Twitter, or LinkedIn) using these sample graphics.

Let's build on last year’s efforts, when more than 100,000 messages flooded Capitol Hill in support of SALSA. Thank you for supporting the #StopLabCuts campaign on September 21!
This new law would fix the worst elements of PAMA, which has led to disastrous cuts to laboratory reimbursements. SALSA is a permanent solution that would set Medicare reimbursement for lab services on a sustainable path forward and give CMS new authority to collect private market data through statistically valid sampling from all laboratory segments for the widely available test services where previous data collection was inadequate. The bill ensures true private market rates are included, provides a much-needed reduction in reporting burden, and protects labs and Medicare from dramatic rate increases or decreases with a gradual phase-in approach going forward. Without congressional intervention this year, laboratories across the country may be forced to reduce services offered to patients.

Contact Your Congressional Representatives

COVID-19 has brought the workforce shortage into critical focus. Turn our profession's visibility into action in Washington to address the campaign seeking co-sponsors for the Allied Health Personnel Shortage Act (H.R.6302). Make it known that there is a serious shortage of qualified personnel.

ASCLS Members Support Advocacy

PAC donations support legislators who advocate for causes important to ASCLS and the practice of clinical laboratory science. It is a way for laboratory professionals to have a voice in Government since so many laws and regulations affect our practice.

Check out the ASCLS PAC Brochure for more information. 

Any solicitation for contributions to ASCLS/PAC is intended solely for members of the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science, an individual membership organization, for the purposes of the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1976, as amended.
