America’s Essential Hospitals

America’s Essential Hospitals is a national champion for hospitals and health systems providing the highest quality care for all patients, including the most vulnerable. Eyman Associates attorneys have represented the association since 1991. During that time, the association has successfully advocated for programs and policies that have proved critical to supporting the mission of essential hospitals, including health care coverage expansion, culminating in the adoption of the Affordable Care Act; Medicaid and Medicare Disproportionate Share Hospital and Graduate Medical Education payments and related funding programs; the 340B Drug Pricing Program; the evolution of Medicaid waivers; and Medicare and Medicaid health information technology incentive payments, among others. With nearly 275 member hospitals across the nation, America’s Essential Hospitals represents the institutions that are at the heart of the health care delivery system, particularly for low-income and other vulnerable patients.
