The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) and their affiliate Home Care & Hospice Financial Manager’s Association (HHFMA) wrapped up their annual Financial Management Conference & Exposition on Tuesday. The Conference’s final General Session was an Open Forum where attendees could ask questions and get answers from NAHC staff on a myriad of different topics.
One area of concern was CMS’ proposed rebasing rule that would cut further into the Medicare home health benefit. “We are fiercely determined to have these rules defeated,” said NAHC President Val J. Halamandaris.
This year’s conference saw one of the largest attendance figures on record - with CMS’ proposed rebasing rules and other policy issues that directly affect home care and hospice provider’s bottom line cited as the reason.
Attendees to the Financial Management Conference & Exhibition – as well as all NAHC members – are encouraged to join their colleagues, peers and NAHC staff at the Annual Meeting being held in Washington, DC October 31 – November 3, 2013.
