Grassroots Advocacy

Make Your Voice Heard!

Policy makers need to understand just how important ASCs are in meeting America's health care needs. These advocacy activities are quick, easy and fun and you will be making a difference.

    Participate in National Advocacy Day 

    In conjunction with ASCA 2017, ASCA will be hosting National Advocacy Day. Join other members from the ASC community in lobbying your members of Congress.

    Become a Grasstop Key Contact

    Key Contacts are those members of ASCA who want to participate in advocating on behalf of the ASC industry. By taking the next step from just participating in the grassroots process members distinguish themselves as true champions of the ASC industry.

    Write a Letter to Congress

    Progress is currently underway to enact legislation as soon as possible to ensure that the ASC industry continues to provide quality care with appropriate access to the millions of Medicare patients in need of ASC services.

    Host a Facility Tour

    While ASCA continues to work to educate lawmakers in Washington, DC, there is no substitute for the powerful message you send when you invite your elected and appointed officials into your facility to see firsthand the quality of care that you provide and the satisfaction of your patients.

    Participate in National ASC Week 

    During National ASC Week, ASCs across the country will host a variety of activities and events to celebrate. By hosting an event in your community you can educate key policy and decision makers about the benefits of ASCs and encourage public awareness of your ASC.
