One thing that’s constant in healthcare is change. Both home health and hospice industries are certainly no stranger when it comes to making adaptions and adjustments on a regular basis. With ever-changing policies and regulations such as pre-claim review, electronic visit verification, home health groupings model, continuous reimbursement cuts and more, it’s important for providers to have a voice in the direction of the industry. After all, you have boots on the ground, seeing day in and day out the needs that have to be met to be successful, both with patients and as a healthcare provider.
As a home health or hospice organization, we know your focus is on delivering care. Like any good organization you’re dedicated to providing the best experience possible to patients and it can be difficult to stay up-to-date on all the long-term conversations and happenings in Washington, D.C. Advocacy within the home health and hospice communities is extremely important. Unified voices are essential to stand up for the issues that matter most to you.
That’s where your partners can step in and help do the heavy lifting.
We’re privileged to serve as one of the voices with other provider organizations and associations in order to convey and amplify the needs of our clients and other healthcare providers in each of the communities we serve. Together with National Association of Home Care and Hospice (NAHC), we’re dedicating ourselves to advocating for sustainable legislation and policies that support a strong home care and hospice industry. Partnerships such as this allow for advocacy on key issues and topics that many organizations simply don’t have the time or resources to address.
