HAPAC is the state PAC and provides support to candidates for the Pennsylvania General Assembly, as well as statewide candidates for public office, such as governor. Participation in HAPAC-state campaigns are open to anyone.
HAPAC-Federal provides support to Congressional candidates primarily through the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Political Action Committee (AHAPAC), an affiliated federal PAC. A percentage of all federally qualified contributions from individuals at authorized hospitals and health systems are credited to HAPAC–Federal, which is then shared with AHAPAC for distribution to federal candidates.
Due to federal law, participation in HAPAC-Federal is limited to individuals employed by a HAP member who are paid on a salary rather than hourly basis and who have policy making, managerial, professional, or supervisory responsibilities. This includes salaried executive, managerial, administrative, hospital employed physicians, medical staff with supervisory responsibilities, and members of your board of directors (foundation board members are not included).
To learn more on how you can support HAPAC-Federal please contact Heidi Ryan, political action manager, at (717) 561-5368.
