AAHomecare Calls on HMEs to Join Legislative Conference

Association says there is still time for providers to sign up for its Sept. 21 Virtual Washington Legislative Conference, in which HME stakeholders will meet with lawmakers and staff via Zoom.

The American Association for Homecare is reminding HME stakeholders that there is still time to register and participate in the Sept. 21 virtual edition of its Washington Legislative Conference.

During the meetings, industry advocates share their experiences and policy recommendations with lawmakers and staff via video conference-enabled meetings. The association implemented the virtual version of the event due to Covid-19 and Congress’s lockdown measures.

This year, Zoom meetings will take place on Sept. 21 from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET. Registration can be made online or using a PDF registration form, and the deadline is Sept. 14. Registration costs $129 for AAHomecare members and $149 for non-members.

For training, on Sept. 15, at 2 p.m. Eastern, registrants can participate in a legislative training session that will provide:

  • Training from advocacy associates on the meeting platform, meeting schedules, updating the schedule, and connecting with colleagues who share an elected official.
  • Issue education from AAHomecare’s leadership on the key issues, resources available to help you tell your story, and policy changes affecting your business.

“Join your peers from across the nation to make sure that members of Congress understand how rising product and operational costs, as well as supply chain issues, are impacting HME providers and patients, and to advocate for sustainable reimbursements and other policy priorities,” a statement from AAHomecare read.
