Federal Advocacy

As an Association of approximately 200 hospitals and health systems, IHA advocates on healthcare issues in the U.S. Congress and federal regulatory agencies. We provide information on legislative and regulatory issues to our members and strive to establish close working relationships with elected and appointed officials to ensure that laws and regulations affecting healthcare provide a reasonable and equitable environment in which hospitals can provide high quality and affordable healthcare.

This section of the web site connects you to information concerning critical healthcare issues that IHA is tracking in Washington, DC to help you to stay informed about current issues affecting Illinois hospitals.
