Please note: Hotel reservations should be made immediately.
Prior to this event, please join us at the following meeting to discuss our Legislative Day talking points:
When: Monday, January 22, 2018 at 7:00 PM
Where: Backwoods Bistro | 401 E Tennessee St. | Tallahassee, FL | 850-320-6345
Each attendee is encouraged to call the representatives in your service area and schedule appointments to meet with them on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. We are also working to set up meetings with committee chairmen for the bills that we are concerned with this legislative session.
- The first bill that we are focusing on at the moment will expand the scope of hospice and allow them to include private duty services without obtaining a home health agency license or become a nurse registry.
- The second bill will allow local governments (city and county) to set up registries for home care providers. This is will result in more expenses for our caregivers and potentially provide unions with access to our caregiver pool
