Ask Congress To Support the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act S.296/ H.R. 2150

The United States is facing a serious shortage of health care professionals. We have an aging population, and we're simply not training enough health care workers to meet growing demand. By 2030, Medicare eligible seniors will make up over 20% of the population and there are not enough physicians to care for them all.

Non-physician health care professionals such as Nurse Practitioners (NP) and Physicians’Assistants (PA) play increasingly critical roles in the delivery of our nation’s health care and often serve as primary care practitioners for Medicare patients.

Federal law needs to be modified to authorize non-physicians to certify Medicare beneficiary eligibility for home health services and ensure access to vital home care services in rural states and communities.



Contact your member of Congress to solve this crisis and support the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act.


On behalf of the entire National Association for Home Care and Hospice (NAHC) team, Thank you for your support of Act S.296/ H.R. 2150

One of our most important constitutional rights is the ability as individuals to petition and participate in our government. It is a fundamental way we share our beliefs and passion and influence policy. Change is achieved through the strength and unity in our voices. Know that your action is important and appreciated. Through your efforts we can change the health care landscape and ensure all Americans are able to easily access quality home health care services when they need them.

Warm regards.
