On behalf of the undersigned organizations, we urge you to reject the inclusion of outdated rider language in the Fiscal Year 2021 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education and Related Agencies (Labor-HHS) Appropriations bills that prohibits the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) from spending any federal dollars to promulgate or adopt a national unique patient identifier (UPI).
