What Does the Election of Donald Trump as President and a
Republican House and Senate Mean for Homecare and Hospice?

Part 1: Tuesday, November 15, 2016 (Recording Available Here)

Part 2: Friday, November 18, 2016 (Recording Available Here)


Program Description:

Val J. Halamandaris, President of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) announced two teleconferences exploring what impact the election of Donald Trump and the simultaneous election of a Republican-dominated House of Representatives and Senate will have on the homecare and hospice community.

The conferences are free of charge to all NAHC members or members of its 52 affiliated State associations.

“There is nothing more important to the home care and hospice providers and the patients we represent than to have an understanding of what policies will come out of the White House and are likely to be enacted by the Congress where Republicans control the committees and have a significant majority,” said Halamandaris. “It is equally important that we bring our entire industry into an agreement to help us fight to have onerous regulations lifted wholesale, to block further cuts, and to enact measures needed for our survival.”

The first session deals with issues where there is general agreement between Mr. Trump and the Republican Congress. This includes the elimination of inappropriate regulations (F2F, VBP, Prior Approval, the companion exemption repeal come to mind); tax cuts both for individuals and corporations, the rebuilding of infrastructure, extension of the home health rural add on, authorizing nurse practitioners to sign orders for home health care and the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act.

The second session relates to matters where there is no apparent agreement between Mr. Trump and the Republicans in Congress. This includes: changing Social Security, Medicare cuts or copayments, Medicaid cuts or increased use of managed care and funding of the military.
