New Federal Bill Would Ensure Timely Access to Home Care Services

Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz of Pennsylvania has submitted a major legislative priority of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) that would help ensure home health patients have timely access to care services.

The Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act (H.R. 4993) would allow nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified nurse midwives, and clinical nurse specialists to order home health services. For more information, see NAHC’s  fact sheet or click the link to the bill language above.

Help advocate by calling the office your Congressional representative to have them sign on. If you are unsure who represents you in the US House, click here and enter your zip code in the top left hand corner.
