    After careful consideration, the College has made the difficult decision to cancel ACC.20 Together With the World Congress of Cardiology (ACC.20/WCC) – scheduled for March 28 – 30 in Chicago, IL. “The health, safety and well-being of our members, staff, exhibitors, faculty and other stakeholders is of paramount importance,” said ACC President Richard J. Kovacs, MD, FACC. “With an ever-increasing number of ACC members on the front lines of preparing and reacting to the COVID-19 outbreak, it is in the best interest of everyone to cancel the meeting and ensure our members are able to do what they do best – help and heal.” Look for more details in the coming days regarding virtual plans for delivering elements of the ACC.20/WCC program, as well as refund processes and options. Read the initial FAQ document to help with answering travel, refund, embargo and other questions.

    ACC 2019 Legislative Conference

    ACC has a long standing history of working across political parties to advance the College's mission to transform cardiovascular care and improve heart health. The Oklahoma ACC delegation met with Oklahoma Members of Congress or their health policy staff to discuss issues and concerns important to cardiovascular clinicians and their patients.

    We discussed issues including:

    Ask #1: Reducing administrative burdens and promotion clinician well-being; streamlining Prior Authorization; and increasing the transparency of the Medical Advantage program. We encouraged Members of Congress to support H.R. 3107.

    Ask #2: Promote the successful transition to value-based payments via modernization of the Stark Law/Anti-Kickback Statute. We encouraged Members of Congress to support HR 2282.S. 966.

    Ask #3: Increasing patient access to cardiac rehab via APP supervised visits. This was approved last year, but won't begin until 2024. We encouraged Members of Congress to support HR 3911 to accelerate the phase in to 2020.

    Ask #4: Promote the transformation of CV care and improve heart health (ACC's mission) by co-sponsoring the South Asian Heart Health Awareness & Research Act of 2019 (H.R. 3131. This bill includes several provisions tocombat youth tobacco epidemic by increasing the age to 21 and imposing restrictions on flavored e-cigarettes.
