AAHomecare in Action – Legislative Conference One Month Away

April 20, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – In the wake of a big legislative victory, Tom Ryan, president and CEO of the American Association for Homecare, is anxious to build on the momentum. “We’re working to get relief for members on audits, expand the prior authorization process, protect access to CRT and defend against the 2016 rate cuts,” says Ryan with just one month to go before the next AAHomecare Washington Legislative Conference.

The chance to capitalize on the binding bids and lobby lawmakers in the nation’s Capitol is scheduled for May 20-21, 2015. Providers planning to attend, should register by clicking here and click here to book a room at the Washington Court Hotel. The deadline for the discounted hotel rate is TODAY, Monday, April 20, 2015.

“It’s always important to make sure that your members of Congress are well educated on your needs as a constituent,” said Ryan in a message to AAHomecare members. “After all, their job is to represent you, but they can’t do that effectively unless they understand the issues that are important to you. And the very best way to get their attention is to sit in their office and talk to them.”
