The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) is planning a “virtual lobby day” on July 22 in an effort to boost cosponsors for the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act (S.2814, H.R.4993). The legislation would allow Nurse Practitioners (NP’s), Clinical Nurse Specialists, and Physician Assistants (PA’s) to certify and make changes to home health care plans.
The House version has 80 cosponsors and the lead sponsors, Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz (D-PA) and Congressman Walter Jones (R-NC), are seeking to get that number up to 100 prior to the August recess.
