The policy staff of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) and its affiliates — the Hospice Association of America (HAA), the Home Care & Hospice Financial Managers Association (HHFMA), and the National Medicaid Action Council — are in the process of developing their agendas for legislative and regulatory activities in the coming year. NAHC, along with its affiliated organizations, is seeking member input with regards to crafting the 2021 agenda documents.
The policy staff is seeking input to help develop these blueprints, which provide the action plans and basis for advocacy efforts for the coming year. Throughout the year as issues develop, NAHC, HAA, and the National Medicaid Action Council gather ideas for these agendas from members, state association affiliates, advisory committees, and the NAHC Board of Directors.
With the potential for big changes on the legislative and regulatory horizon for next year on Capitol Hill and in the Administration, NAHC and its affiliates are developing strategies now to protect the continued viability of home care and hospice. Please take a moment to communicate your thoughts for these agendas to guide us as an association and a community. We are particularly interested in any new issues that you believe should be included as part of NAHC’s overall advocacy agenda.
As references, previous versions of NAHC’s Legislative and Regulatory Blueprints are available on the NAHC website under Policy & Advocacy.

When the draft blueprints and legislative priorities for 2021 are completed, they will be reviewed by the NAHC Public Policy Committee, the Hospice Advisory Board, the HHFMA, and the NAHC Board of Directors.
