Celebrating Our Heroes: Savoring the Achievements of the Past and Shaping the Future

Denise Schrader, Chairman of the National Association for Homecare and Hospice (NAHC) today announced the theme for the Association’s annual meeting.

Celebrating Our Heroes: Savoring the Achievements of the Past and Shaping the Future

The 2016 theme looks back at the beginnings of NAHC in 1982 when only about 20 percent of the American public knew what homecare was about. Today a higher percent not only understand it but are passionate to see access to it expanded to all Americans.

“Thanks to NAHC and all of us working together, the number of homecare agencies has increased from about 3,000 when NAHC was created to more than 35,000 today,” said Ms. Schrader. “Support in the Congress was then limited to a few people and now has grown to include the great majority of both parties. The leadership of the Republican and Democratic parties have both embraced home care and technology as the best answer to dealing with the needs of the massive 78 million-strong baby boom generation.”

Incorrect Death Terminations in Social Security Administration Records

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has learned that the Social Security Administration (SSA) processed incorrect death terminations for over 3,000 beneficiaries on August 10 and August 11, 2016. Additionally, SSA processed incorrect death terminations for over 300 Rep Payees, resulting in suspension of the beneficiary represented.

The SSA is working to correct these records as quickly as possible and is preparing a notice to send to all affected beneficiaries. NAHC is providing this information to home care and hospice providers because the process for correcting the error can sometimes be lengthy and complex. In addition, receipt of the letters may cause confusion and distress among beneficiaries, prompting questions from beneficiaries to home care staff.
