Home Health Authority for NPs, CNSs and CNMs

Your action is needed now!

The Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act (H.R. 4993) has been introduced in Congress by Rep. Allyson Schwartz (D-PA). If passed, this bill will eliminate a long standing barrier to the provision of care by advanced practice nurses. It will establish authority to certify Medicare patients for home health care in accordance with state law. Several years ago, ONA succeeded in achieving a change in state law to allow certification for home health by NPs and CNSs so Oregon would be able to immediately implement this important role.

Please contact your Congressman and ask them to sign on to H.R. 4993.

If you’re represented by Rep. Blumenauer, Rep. Schrader or Rep. DeFazio, they have already signed on to the bill, so please call and thank them for their support.

If you’re represented by Rep. Wu or Rep. Walden please call and urge them to sign on to H.R. 4993.
