Home Health and Hospice Providers Encouraged to Provide Input.
The National Association for Homecare and Hospice (NAHC), published an article on January 6th in which they provided instructions on how to submit input to NAHC regarding legislative and regulatory priorities for 2016 for the home care and hospice community.
NAHC has made available three online questionnaires to allow home care and hospice organizations, as well as other interested parties, the ability to provide input. The questionnaires are only available through Friday, January 15, 2016. NAHC is asking that agencies or organizations that provide only hospice care to complete only the hospice questionnaire.

HEALTHCAREfirst recommends agencies take the opportunity to participate. Feedback is extremely valuable and helps shape future rulemaking. NAHC stated that the feedback will help guide their legislative and regulatory advocacy in a very crucial upcoming year, during the March on Washington and throughout the year.
