Roll Up Your Sleeves and Join the Fight in Washington for Better HME Policy

Don’t sit on the sidelines waiting for others to make the “ask” in Washington, D.C. Join us on Capitol Hill as we fight to replace the current competitive bidding program with a functional and transparent pricing system, rein in out-of-control audit processes, and simplify the stream of requirements and procedures that stands between suppliers and patients. AAHomecare will guide you through the process at the 2016 Washington Legislative Conference.
Now is the time to step up and get involved with the legislative process. We need members of Congress to understand what is at stake for the HME community, and we need members of that community to help explain it to them. 

AAHomecare will work with you to schedule the right appointments. Once you get to Washington, DC, you'll have access to homecare's top experts, who will help you understand the details of the key issues during a day-long series of seminars. They will also provide tips on the best ways to establish working relationships with your members of Congress, give you handouts to leave behind in Hill offices after your appointments, and then follow-up with those offices to reinforce your message.
