The 2017 legislative session adjourned sine die in the early morning hours of April 22, completing its work on the biennial budget one week ahead of schedule. The 2017 legislative session was productive for the Indiana Hospital Association and its members on many fronts, including renewal of the hospital assessment fee until 2019, expansion of the telemedicine statute and legislation addressing the state’s opioid epidemic. In addition, IHA was successful in fighting off various costly and burdensome regulations proposed earlier in the session. We thank our members who took the time to advocate with their legislators for policies that strengthen hospitals and protect patients. Read IHA's 2017 Legislative Session Report here.
