Urge Congress To Pass The Healthcare Provider Shortage Minimization Act!

Beginning in 2020, NALTO began its grassroots efforts to educate members of the United States Congress about the locum tenens industry and support legislation that retains approximately 52,000 locum tenens providers who provide care to over 7.5 million Americans every year.

With the well-documented existing and forecasted provider shortage, healthcare facilities and their patients simply cannot afford to lose providers like you from the labor pool. Quite simply, lives are at stake.

That’s why the House of Representatives introduced The Healthcare Provider Shortage Minimization Act in 2023. This legislation will help address the growing healthcare staffing shortage which impacts millions of Americans seeking critical healthcare services nationwide and particularly in rural communities. This legislation is critically important to enable you to continue to practice as an independent contractor.

NALTO has made it easy below for you to send a message to your Member of Congress urging them to sponsor and support this critical proposal.
