A lot of Republicans are angry that their elected officials have failed, thus far, to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA, or “Obamacare”) with something more to their liking. There may be an equal number of Democrats railing about the prospect of Congress doing exactly that. Senators and Congresspersons can expect to get an earful from both over the 2-week spring recess. Healthcare providers are likely to make their wishes known, too. Some legislators have already planned town-hall meetings to hear their constituent’s views, with healthcare expected to be a key topic. Urgent care operators should ensure their voices are heard by attending meetings or contacting their elected officials directly. The recess began April 10 and ends April 21.
