By Policy and Advocacy Brief posted 02-23-2021 11:38


On February 18, the AUA joined 23 other physician groups in a meet and greet with Congresswoman Kathleen Rice (D-NY-04). A former prosecutor, Rep. Rice recently has been appointed to the House Energy & Commerce Committee – one of the two House committees with jurisdiction on health policy. Congresswoman Rice is a strong supporter of expanded use of telehealth services, reforming the prior authorization process, halting the Medicare sequester cuts for the duration of the public health emergency and other AUA-supported or -championed legislative issues.

The AUA will continue identifying ways to work with Rep. Rice whenever possible.
