NAHC, Hospice Association of America, and Medicaid Council Seek Input on 2014 Legislative, Regulatory Agendas
December 19, 2013 09:31 AM
Each year the policy staffs of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), the Hospice Association of America (HAA), and the National Council on Medicaid Home Care (Medicaid Council) develop agendas for legislative and regulatory activities in the coming year. The process of compiling the Legislative and Regulatory Blueprints for Action for 2014 has begun.
The policy staffs of these organizations are seeking input to help develop these blueprints, which lay out the action plan and basis for advocacy efforts for the coming year. Throughout the year as issues develop, NAHC, HAA, and the Medicaid Council gather ideas for these agendas from members, state association affiliates, advisory committees, and the NAHC Board of Directors.
With potential big changes on the legislative and regulatory horizon for next year on Capitol Hill, NAHC, HAA, and the Medicaid Council are planning ahead as always with strategies to protect the continued viability of home care and hospice. Please take a moment to communicate your thoughts for these agendas to guide us as an association and community.
You can review the 2013 blueprints for reference below. Copies of the Legislative and Regulatory Blueprints for Action are also available on the NAHC website.
