FEDERAL
ISSUES

AHHA provides member with the latest federal updates through relationships with the American Hospital Association (AHA), the American Health Care Association (AHCA), and the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC).  

AHHA regularly submits comments on proposed federal regulatory changes and/or letters to the Alaska congressional delegation on behalf of hospitals and nursing homes.

Federal Letters and Comments

Please note: The Alaska Hospital & Healthcare Association (AHHA) was formerly the Alaska State Hospital & Nursing Home Association (ASHNHA). In May, 2022, the board passed a resolution to change the association's name in an effort to adopt a more inclusive, concise, and relevant title to represent our members and mission. Many of the resources listed on this page still have the ASHNHA title and references.
