Neurosurgery Asks Congress to Provide COVID-19 Relief to Pediatric Providers

On May 13, the AANS, CNS, AANS/CNS Section on Pediatric Neurological Surgery and American Society of Pediatric Neurosurgeons, joined 25 medical organizations in asking Congress to provide “immediate financial relief payments to pediatric specialists and primary care pediatricians.” The letter notes that most COVID-19 relief funds have gone to physicians who treat Medicare patients, leaving out those who take care of children. The letter points out that without assistance, our young and most vulnerable patients will be placed at risk with increasingly limited access to patient care that they need.”
