NAHC Releases 2016 Legislative Priorities Document
Document Supports Congressional Advocacy during the March on Washington; Register Today!
The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) has released its 2016 Legislative Priorities Document, which includes the highest priority issue briefs from the much larger NAHC Legislative Blueprint for Action to be released in the near future. The priority items will be combined into a booklet that will be distributed to every Congressional office just before NAHC’s 2016 March on Washington Conference, taking place April 3-5 in Washington, D.C. The Legislative Priorities Document, along with accompanying resources, supports advocacy efforts at the March on Washington and throughout the year.
While the Legislative Priorities Document includes NAHC’s top hospice priorities as well as some of the regulatory issues where we are seeking Congressional intervention, NAHC will also be preparing separate hospice and regulatory booklets for distribution to Congress.
As the time for the March on Washington approaches, NAHC will release what are called “legislative hotsheets” that advocates can use for talking points and as handouts for their visits. There will be individual hotsheets addressing Medicare, Medicaid, hospice, private pay, and technology priority issues.
