An Opinion-Editorial titled “Support Home Care Providers” focusing on the role of home health care in the nation’s health care reform efforts, as well as the role it should play, was published in today’s (September 30) Worcester Telegram & Gazette. The Op-Ed is printed in a section of the paper called “As I See It” and was submitted by President and CEO of VNA Care Network & Hospice Karen Green.
Below is an excerpt from the article:
These are historic times in our nation and our state. With the attention of Congress and the president focused on health care reform, we as health care providers are poised between impatience and trepidation. We are impatient for action to help the struggling uninsured families we know only too well, but fear that paying for expanding access to insurance out of Medicare “savings” will be a death knell for the most efficient among us.
