Call to Action - Advocacy

Advocating for our members and promoting quality home health care is an important priority for AAHC.  To this end we monitor and address legislative and regulatory issues that affect the home health industry. We strive to keep our members informed about legislative activities and regulatory information both at the State and Federal through our Call-to-Actions/Alerts and Home Care Updates*.  

 

The AAHC Public Policy Workgroup works to track legislation, meet with representatives on home care industry-related issues and advance the mission of AAHC at the Arizona State Capitol and regulatory agencies.  For more information or to volunteer on this important committee, click here or contact the AAHC Office at (480) 491-0540. 

 

Federal 

The Arizona Association for Home Care meets regularly with the Arizona Congressional delegation and partners with the National Association for Home Care and Hospice to advocate with other regulatory and policy-setting agencies as appropriate.  Current Issues are:

 

  • Care Planning Act: would provide much needed assistance to individuals with serious health conditions by giving them access to more information about potential treatment options and ensuring that the course of treatment they arrive at is consistent with their personal goals, values and preferences. Learn More
  • Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act: Our health care system is changing and outdated laws are preventing access to vital services.  78 million Baby Boomers are approaching retirement and there are not enough physicians to care for them all. Nurse Practitioners (NP) and Physicians’ Assistants (PA) will play critical roles in the delivery of our nation’s health care. Learn More

Call to Action! Share Your Concerns with Congress!

The Arizona Association for Home Care (AAHC) has joined the National Association for Home Care & Hospice in a grassroots campaign to educate our legislators on the effect drastic cuts and other proposed legislation have on our ability to provide accessible quality care to our patients and families.
