Participate in IHA’s Protect Patient Care campaign to secure much-needed hospital funding. We are asking legislators to increase the state-funded Medicaid hospital rate for the first time in 28 years.

Campaign Background

With hospitals facing unprecedented financial and staffing challenges, IHA and member hospitals are coordinating on a public relations campaign, Protect Patient Care, leveraging digital and earned media.

Campaign Goals

  • Educating legislators about the challenges facing hospitals

  • Making a strong argument that a state-funded Medicaid hospital rate increase is urgently needed
