“Our local family practices are in need of immediate federal relief due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “My office was able to reach out directly to HHS to identify the needs of this specific practice and expedite and secure their payment. I will continue to advocate and elevate concerns of our local hospitals, community health centers, and individual family practices as they navigate this difficult financial situation. As always, I encourage healthcare practices and others experiencing difficulties in receiving payments to reach out to my office and we will work with you directly.”

“Irongate Family Practice is thankful for the support and advocacy Congresswoman Stefanik and her staff provided to help us take care of our patients during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Robert P. Reeves, MD.
