Home Health Planning and Improvement Act Introduced

The Home Health Planning and Improvement Act (S 227) was introduced in the US Senate and a companion bill is expected to be introduced in the House in the next week or so. This legislation continues our effort to achieve authority for Nurse Practitioners and Clinical Nurse Specialists to admit their patients to home health.

Please contact your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative to thank them for their support or encourage them to sponsor the bill. The best thing you can provide is an example from your practice about how this authority will benefit your patient and save costs.

Contact your member of the US House of Representatives
