Senator Al Franken to Speak at NAHC’s March on Washington Conference

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) today announced that United States Senator Al Franken (D-MN) will address the Senate Breakfast at the 2016 Home Care & Hospice March on Washington Conference, joining four other Senators already confirmed. In addition to Sen. Franken, the Senators speaking include: Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), who chairs the Special Committee on Aging; Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), a member of the Senate Finance Committee with jurisdiction over Medicare and Medicaid; Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and a member of Senate Finance Committee; Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), a member of the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee and the Special Committee on Aging (see previous NAHC Report article here).
Sen. Franken, like the others speaking, is a long-standing champion for home care and hospice. He is a member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee. He last addressed the 2013 March on Washington Senate Breakfast, and told a moving story about his family’s positive experience with the quality hospice and end-of-life care that his father received.

The Senator is also a co-sponsor of the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act (S. 578), which would allow Nurse Practitioners and physician assistants to certify Medicare home health plans of care. The legislation is one of the top priorities for NAHC.
