  • ACOEM/Health Care Leaders Oppose Diversion Prevention and Public Health Fund Monies in Fiscal Year 2013

    ACOEM has joined with 122 organizational health care leaders in opposing diversion of a significant portion of the Prevention and Public Health Fund in FY 13 for implementation of the Affordable Care Act. ACOEM signed onto the bill. In a May 3, 2013, letter to the President Obama, the organizations expressed concern that further cuts to the Prevention Fund will compromise the ability to make progress on cost containment, public health modernization, and wellness promotion.
