Home Health Legislation - URGENT

Posted almost 2 years ago by Amy O'Meara

This is a great time to thank our Members of Congress - Peter Welch in the House and Senator Leahy in the Senate - for cosponsoring the Home Health Care planning and Improvement Act of 2015 (HR 1342 and S. 578). We currently have 152 cosponsors in the House and 39 in the Senate. Please reach out through the AANP advocacy site and ask Senator Bernie Sanders to co-sponsor this critical piece of legislation that removes yet 1 more barrier for patients to access health care in a safe and timely manner by the provider of their choice: https://www.votervoice.net/iframes/AANP/Campaigns/37934/Respond

The more support we can show for this legislation the better. Thank you for all your efforts on this legislation; it is making a difference. We are seeing lots of support from both parties and both new and long term Members of Congress- it is very exciting!! We are so close - Lets do a full court press on this one and FINALLY make it happen....

Thanks again-
Deborah Wachtel
