NAHC Legislative Action Network (NAHC LAN) Provides Many Resources to Help Home Care Advocates Combat Home Health Rebasing Rule
September 1, 2013 09:53 AM
As part of its ongoing campaign to block the CMS proposed Medicare home health rebasing rule that would cut Medicare home health payments by 14 percent (see recent NAHC Report coverage), NAHC has developed jointly with the Alliance for Home Health Quality and Innovation, the Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare, and the VNAA a series of resources to aid in making the case against these rebasing cuts.
Among the resources that are available are a comprehensive white paper that covers all aspects of the rule and its many deficiencies, talking points for use in meetings with Members of Congress and their health staffers - as well as the media - the projected impact of the rule on the states and Congressional districts, and a series of one pagers graphically describing the impact of the rule on such areas as jobs, small businesses, and medically underserved communities.
Below are links to these resources posted on the NAHC Legislative Action Network (LAN):
