Dear Association Executives, We need your help.
The National Council is assembling information and concerns from the field so we may better advocate for our members and ensure the rapid policy changes taking place meet your needs. This information will help.
Here's the Ohio Council initial survey of members – we started with operational changes providers are taking; most significant need; estimated decrease in revenue due to reductions in appointments; and anticipated staffing reductions. The numbers are pretty grim. We already know from a survey we did in February that 46% of our membership (160+ organizations) have less than 30 days cash on hand. I attached that survey as well. Our current priority is sustaining cash flow and resources will need to flow this week or next to avoid massive disruption in clinical services.
