Health Care Safety Net Enhancement Act of 2013

POSTED IN: Legislative Updates,

The act provides medical liability relief for physicians providing care under the EMTALA mandate, something of importance to all Emergency Physicians.  ACEP has been hard at work to gather support for the act.  The 2 bills (HR 36 and S 961) supporting this act were introduced by Representative Charlie Dent and Senator Roy Blunt.  Senator Blunt is one of Missouri’s senators and has repeatedly met with MoCEP concerning issues important to Emergency Medicine when we have lobbied in Washington D.C. Feel free to contact Senator Blunt’s office to thank him for introducing and continuing to supporting this bill.
