Join Society members in supporting important issues affecting post-acute and long-term care patients and professionals.
Support the Nursing Home Disclosure Act
The bipartisan bill will require nursing homes to report their medical directors to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which must publish this information on the online Care Compare tool. Currently, some nursing homes do not provide a full public report of who their medical directors are, leaving families without critical information they need as they search for quality nursing homes.
Tell Congress to Avert Important Health-Care Funding Cuts
House Appropriators began the process of passing a health funding bill that contains $17.4 billion in cuts to the Department of Health and Human Services that could result in shutting down AHRQ and cutting $1.6 billion from CDC’s current funding levels. The next several weeks of legislative activity will be critical for the future of health-care and medical research. Congressional appropriators are making decisions right now that will have implications for patient safety and our nation’s health security for the next decade.
