#7 Lifting Restrictions on Physician-Owned Hospitals
Play • 35 min

Physician-owned hospitals provide some of the highest quality care, at the lowest cost. Yet since the Affordable Care Act passed in 2010, they have been prohibited from expanding or establishing new facilities to meet the growing demand for services. Congressman Michael Burgess, MD (TX-26), explains why restrictions on this competitive force in America’s healthcare system should be permanently lifted—not just during the COVID-19 pandemic—for patients who deserve the right to receive care at the hospital of their choice. (Recorded on 7/21/2020)

Hosts: Kristen Coultas, AAOS Advocacy Communications Director and Catherine Hayes, AAOS Senior Director of Government Relations
