NAHC Urges Congress Reject Cuts to Medicare,
Medicaid and Home Care

Take Action to Help, Click Here!

17_P2A_Ad_300x300_MedicaidThe National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) has joined a coalition of like-minded organizations in writing a letter to Congress urging it to reject portions of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) that would injure America’s growing elderly population by imposing severe cuts on Medicaid that would also affect Medicare and the provision of home-and-community-based care. The letter is addressed to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

NAHC is deeply concerned that the AHCA would increase the number of uninsured Americans by 23 million and significantly increase health care costs for millions more—particularly older adults with modest incomes or pre-existing conditions. According to the recent Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report, the increase in the number of uninsured “would be disproportionately larger among older people with lower-income—particularly people between 50 and 64 years old with income of less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level.”

In addition, NAHC also urges everyone in the home care and hospice community to send this message to their Senators as soon as possible. Every person who cares about home care – from managers to nurses to support staff to patients and patients’ families – can and should be a part of this effort. With ONE CLICK, you can send this message to Senators through NAHC’s Virtual Lobby PageGO HERE to tell Senators to reject Medicaid cuts – it literally takes only moments and those moments could make a huge difference for the millions of Americans who depend on home care and hospice.
