ADVOCACY & POLICY

AHHA's policy and advocacy priorities are driven by a vision that every Alaskan has access to affordable, safe, high-quality healthcare. AHHA is committed to creating and maintaining a financial and regulatory environment in which hospitals and healthcare systems can provide the right care at the right time. This involves collaborating with members, policymakers, and community partners. 

AHHA supports federal and state lawmakers with the information and tools they need to make informed decisions on issues that affect the health of Alaskans, and educates legislators on the important role that Alaska’s hospitals, nursing homes, and healthcare partners play in their communities.

AHHA supports its members by monitoring policy issues at the federal and state levels that affect hospitals and nursing homes. The association takes action by providing comments and testimony to governing bodies, writing letters, participating in agency meetings, and developing collaborative relationships with organizations interested in Alaska’s health care industry.
