Support Needed for NPs to order Home Health
There is important legislation moving at the federal level that would authorize NPs to order home health services for Medicare patients. Finally!! We really need this to pass.
The Senate Bill is S. 227 and our Senator is Dianne Feinsteinfeinstein.senate.gov
The House Bill is HR 2267 and our Congressman is Wally Herger herger.house.gov
Please email a letter of support to each. Let them know you live in their district and it's important that our elderly patients receive home health services in a timely manner. This keeps our patients out of the hospital and saves money and is in the scope of practice for NPs.
If you contact the links above you can email our reps.
