Executive Director Pat Kelleher and Director of Legislative & Public Affairs James Fuccione traveled to Washington DC in late March for the National Association for Home Care & Hospice’s annual conference. Along with several agency members, the Alliance held a briefing for Congressional staff on proposed cuts to home health in the President’s budget and also met with Congressman James P. McGovern.
McGovern continues to be a champion for home health and the Alliance is assisting his office in fighting the proposed reductions. The Congressman was also featured on the cover of Caring Magazine and has circulated a letter among his colleagues announcing the reconvening of the House’s Home Health Working Group.
