Urge “Lame Duck” Congress To Pass Home Health Bill

Time To Take Action!!
Urge “Lame Duck” Congress To Pass Home Health Bill

Congress is returning November 13 for a short post-election “lame duck” session to deal with a long list of critical issues including deficit reduction and pending deep cuts in Medicare payments.  Legislation to enable nurse practitioners to authorize Medicare home health services should be part of these negotiations – but it could be overlooked unless we make our voices heard now!

Contact your Senators and Representatives NOW!  Urge them to ask their leaders to include the provisions of the “Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act” (H.R. 2267/S. 227) in any Medicare or budget legislation to be passed before the end of the year.  For further information click links below.

What is the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act of 2011?

It Only Takes a Few Minutes to Take Action!
