Last week, HCAOA hosted its inaugural Policy and Regulatory Committee meeting. Chaired by Matt Boever, Home Instead, and Veronica Charles, Vice Chair, of Maxim Health Services led the committee’s discussion on the proposed Home and Community-Based Services Access Act.
This bill is not yet introduced, but HCAOA invites members to forward comments on the proposed legislation by this Friday, April 16 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Read the memo requesting comments, here.
This bill would make home care mandated under Medicaid, making in-home care an entitlement just like nursing home care is currently. You can read it here.
