HCAOA members in Virginia are celebrating a legislative win. A bill signed by the governor eliminates the requirement that home care agencies conduct triennial audits. The chapter formed a work group to review proposed updates to the home care regulations, submitted comments to the Department of Health, and led the efforts to shepherd legislation to address concerns, including the audit.
“This relief from an unnecessary and costly regulatory burden on small businesses is a real victory for Virginia home care agencies. We’re grateful to our legislators for seeing the common sense of this issue,” said Mitch Opalski, SYNERGY HomeCare in – Arlington and Alexandria, who led this advocacy effort.
