The America Health Care Association will host its annual Developmental Disabilities Providers Congressional fly-in event Wednesday in the nation's capital. In the morning, healthcare providers serving this population will hear from top guest speakers and also receive an overview of current legislative issues facing them. Visits to legislators are on tap for the afternoon. These are special opportunities to meet with lawmakers, and their key staff members, who can impact policy for DD residents and caregivers.
Preventing further reimbursement cuts, home- and community-based services, and housing will be the main topics of conversation Tuesday, when long-term care providers personally visit dozens of their respective U.S. lawmakers in Washington.
