NAHC, Affiliates Seek Input for 2016 Legislative, Regulatory Agendas
December 3, 2015 12:08 PM
The policy staffs of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) and its affiliates—the Hospice Association of America (HAA) and the National Medicaid Action Council—are in the process of developing their agendas for legislative and regulatory activities in the coming year. NAHC, along with its affiliated organizations, is seeking member input with regards to crafting the 2016 agenda documents.
The policy staffs are seeking input to help develop these blueprints, which provide the action plans and basis for advocacy efforts for the coming year. Throughout the year as issues develop, NAHC, HAA, and the National Medicaid Action 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 and its affiliates 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 a community.
As references, the 2015 Legislative and Regulatory Blueprints, as well as a document containing NAHC’s 2015 Legislative Priorities, are available below.
When the draft blueprints and legislative priorities for 2016 are completed, they will be reviewed by the NAHC Government Affairs Committee, the Hospice Advisory Board, the National Medicaid Action Council Board of Directors, and the NAHC Board of Directors.
To submit ideas to be considered for inclusion in the 2016 Legislative and Regulatory Blueprints for Action, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
