Act Now: Ask Congress to Repeal Section 510 Before the End of the Year
As Congress is working to pass a final federal budget before the end of the year, we need your help to urge Congress to finally repeal Section 510 from the Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23) Labor-HHS appropriations bill.
For the fourth year, the US House of Representatives has repealed Section 510 from its Labor-HHS appropriations bill, and for the second year the Senate draft, Labor-HHS bill also removed Section 510 from their bill. We need you to write your members of Congress to ensure the ban remains out of the final version of the bill. Section 510 has been a barrier to moving forward with a national strategy on patient identification, and this is the year we must ensure its repeal.
AHIMA needs your help to reach out to your members of Congress and urge them to support the repeal of Section 510.
