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.

Tell Congress to Stabilize Medicare Payments

A bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced H.R. 2474, the Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act. The legislation that would reform this flawed system and provide annual inflationary updates, based on the Medicare Economic Index (MEI), for Medicare physician services, similar to updates received by other health care providers.
