Dr. Bruce Siegel
President and CEO, America's Essential Hospitals
Siegel continued to be a vocal opponent of the CMS’ efforts to cut 340B payments. The association, along with other hospital groups, have successfully challenged the rule in court, although it is being appealed. In August, Siegel sent a letter to HHS’ Office for Civil Rights arguing that a proposal to change anti-discrimination provisions would roll back protections for LGBTQ individuals and nonproficient English speakers.
