The Home Care Alliance has sent letters to all members of the state legislature’s conference committee, including the two chairs of Ways & Means, that is charged with hammering out differences in the budget proposals of the House and Senate.
The Senate budget contained an outside section, Amendment #607, which directs the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative to conduct a review of the effectiveness of telehealth on patients with chronic conditions. Help advocate to keep that amendment in the final version of the state’s budget by emailing the members of the conference committee! You can also call using the contact info on each legislators web page:
- Senator Steven Panagiotakos

- Senator Michael Knapik
- Representative Charles Murphy
- Representative Barbara L’Italien
