Fight for the Future for Home Care and Hospice!
The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) invites you to join us in Washington, D.C. on March 23 and 24 for the annual March on Washington, two days of policy education and advocacy in the halls of Congress. NAHC will soon provide further information on how to register for March on Washington and the venue for the event. Registration is required, but the event is free.
The evening of March 23rd will be devoted to education and networking, where attendees will hear a detailed policy briefing from NAHC staff and catch up with other industry leaders during a cocktail hour. On March 24, attendees will hold their scheduled meeting with congressional offices on Capitol Hill.
Members of Congress need to hear from you, their constituents, so they better understand the unique value of home care and hospice and how public policy can best serve the vast majority of Americans who want to age in place. The change we need will not happen without your voice. Join other home care and hospice leaders from across America in advocating for your patients, employees, and businesses.
Become a home care and hospice champion. Help protect our community — and your agency — while building essential relationships with the lawmakers who will serve as NAHC ambassadors.
We look forward to you joining us in Washington, D.C., where NAHC will provide the advice and tools you need to make your day of advocacy on Capitol Hill a tremendous success.
The Key Issues
- Patient-Driven Groupings Model – Prevent PDGM behavior assumptions;
- Non-Physician Practitioner – Give NPPs the authority to order home health under Medicare;
- Rural add-on – Ensure safeguards for rural patients and providers;
- Hospice Carve-in – Protect the hospice benefit from Medicare Advantage;
- Hospice Quality of Care Reforms – Strengthen the benefits integrity.
Who Should Attend?
All home care and hospice advocates are invited to make the biggest possible impact on our elected officials. NAHC is working every day for you, but adding your voice to ours is the key to our shared success!
