Call to Action on Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act!

Posted 3 months ago by Paula Christianson-Silva

Dear AZNPC Members and Followers,
During this year’s AANP Health Policy Conference, we noted that legislation on home health care was forthcoming in the House of Representatives. Just this week, Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Buddy Carter (R-GA), Ron Kind (D-WI), Mike Kelly (R-PA), Susan Wild (D-PA) and David Joyce (R-OH) introduced H.R. 2150, the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act
This legislation is identical to the Senate bill and would authorize NPs to certify their patients’ need for home health care. Last Congress, this legislation had 182 cosponsors in the House and with your grassroots outreach, we can achieve even greater support in the 116th Congress.   
Use the link provided below today to send an email to your Representative and urge them to cosponsor, or thank them for supporting, H.R. 2150. 
Please email governmentaffairs@aanp.org if you have any questions.
Thank you!
