Take Action on Home Health AANP

Posted over 2 years ago by Tamarah Jungklaus

Action Needed Today

Right now Congress is setting the health care agenda for the rest of 2015, we must call on them to support the Home Health Planning and Improvement Act (S. 578/H.R. 1342). Members of Congress need to understand that nurse practitioners must be able to certify the assessments for home health services. This will increase access to care and reduce needless costs and delays to the millions of patients that choose to receive their care from a nurse practitioner.

Now is the time, to come together to make certain that our voices are heard so that this legislation is given the priority it deserves. We ask that each of you use this link to contact your Members of Congress today to ask them to support the Home Health Planning and Improvement Act (S. 578/H.R. 1342) and that they urge the committees of jurisdiction to take action on these bills. Additionally, please share this link with other NPs and anyone else who is in support of removing barriers to practice for nurse practitioners.

ATTENTION: Home Health Care is an essential benefit to for the assessment, treatment and/or rehabilitation of ill, disabled and elderly patients in their homes. This currently requires the supervising Physcian to sign each plan of care which is regulated by Medicare and Medicaid.
Please approve Home Health Planning and Improvement Act (S. 578/H.R. 1342). Nurse practitioners are qulified practitioners and able to certify independently the assessments for home health services. Hence saving cost, implementing quicker services and preventing redundency for healthcare.
