NAHC, Hospice Association of America, and Medicaid Council Seek Input on 2015 Legislative, Regulatory Agendas
November 13, 2014 12:00 PM
Each year the policy staffs of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) and its affiliates—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 NAHC Legislative and Regulatory Blueprints for Action for 2015 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.
The 2014 Legislative and Regulatory Blueprints, as well as a document containing NAHC’s 2014 Legislative Priorities, are available as a reference below.
Copies of the Blueprints and Legislative Priorities are also available on the NAHC website.
When the draft blueprints and legislative priorities for 2015 are completed, they will be reviewed by the NAHC Government Affairs Committee, the Hospice Advisory Board, the Medicaid Council Advisory Board, and the NAHC Board of Directors.
