The 2012 legislative session ended with several victories for long term care providers. FHCA worked diligently to help preserve nursing home Medicaid reimbursement rates and pass legislation which contains important provisions that will offer member facilities regulatory relief, giving staff more time to focus on resident care.
This special Provider Program features an in-depth interview with the members of FHCA’s legislative team, including a review of 2012 session outcomes and a discussion of the top issues that we expect to be addressed among the 2013 Legislature, including Certificate of Need, Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements, managed care implementation and much more.
FHCA members' active involvement in our legislative initiatives is critical to our success - no one can replace their grassroots voice and the effectiveness they have in addressing the local issues and concerns of the long term care profession. Please take time to watch this video, which is an effective tool for communicating important long term care priorities with legislators and legislative candidates in the coming months.
