PCC Joins #SavePrimaryCare Campaign to Call for Dedicated Funding to Primary Care

The week of June 1 is a time of national advocacy for primary care. The PCC and many other organizations are part of this campaign, called #saveprimarycare. We are reaching out to Congress and the administration to call for dedicated funding to primary care to help practices continue to serve patients during the public health and economic crisis posed by the coronavirus.

As part of the campaign, PCC, representing over 60 organizations, sent on June 1 a letter to Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar urging him “and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to make an immediate, targeted allocation from the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) to primary care clinicians and/or practices in order to offset reduced revenue and increased costs associated with COVID-19. The targeted allocation that HHS has already made to rural hospitals from the PRF should serve as a model for primary care.”

PCC will also be sharing campaign messages on its Facebook and Twitter pages this week. You are encouraged to join the campaign by reposting our social media messages or your own messages. Be sure your posts (especially on Twitter) include the campaign’s hashtag—#SavePrimaryCare—and tag Secretary Azar (@SecAzar) and his agency HHS (@HHSgov).
