Please join the Home Care Association of Florida, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), and industry advocates from across the nation on April 1-2, 2019 in Washington, D.C., to make our voices heard in the halls of Congress.
NAHC is hosting a welcome reception panel discussion on current legislative issues impacting home care the evening of Monday, April 1, and participants will meet with members of Congress on Tuesday, April 2. HCAF staff will coordinate meetings.
The best advocates for our community are the hard-working people delivering invaluable services to millions of Americans in their homes every day. Your lawmakers care what you think and your message is powerful. We will face important challenges to home care in 2019 and beyond, such as the forthcoming Review Choice Demonstration and Medicare payment methodology reform (Patient-Driven Groupings Model) coming in 2020
You can protect the interests of our industry and your agency and build important relationships with lawmakers by coming to Washington, D.C., to advocate for home care in person.
Not a "political person"? Not to worry! HCAF's policy team will be sure you are prepared with everything you need to know to meet with lawmakers and their staff at the Capitol.
No prior advocacy experience is necessary, and advocates will be assigned to a group with an experienced leader. Bringing employees and staff members is highly encouraged!
