Key Messages to Share with Lawmakers During NAHC’s March on Washington
Members Encouraged to Take Action Virtually if they are Unable to Join in Person; Talking Points, Fact Sheets, Resources to Participate Virtually, and Additional Information is Available on NAHC’s Legislative Action Network
An integral part of NAHC’s annual March on Washington is for members to meet directly with their lawmakers and discuss the most pressing issues facing the home care and hospice community. This year - with so much at stake that could potentially benefit or devastate both home care and hospice – it is even more important for NAHC members to join their friends and colleagues in Washington and become a strong, vocal proponent for home care and hospice.

Even if NAHC members are unable to attend in person, NAHC encourages all of its members to participate virtually, if they are unable to come to Washington.
NAHC’s March on Washington is happening at the same time as negotiations in Congress get underway to replace or repeal the flawed Medicare physician payment formula known as “SGR.” One of the key messages this year is simple: Congress must Reject proposals that would impose home health and hospice copays and payment cuts to offset the cost of the SGR fix, to reduce the deficit, or for other purposes.
