Legislative

  • VNAA Letter in Support of the Telehealth Enhancement Act of 2013 (HR 3306)

  • Rebasing Dear Colleague Letters (Senate | House): On Sept. 25, members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives sent a letter to Marilyn B. Tavenner, Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, regarding the 2014 Home Health Perspective Payment System (HHPPS) and its proposed implementation of the rebasing provision.

  • Congressional Post-Acute Letter: On August 19, VNAA submitted comments in response to a request for information issued by the joint Congressional committees of health care jurisdiction. The letter, released June 19, invited VNAA and other post-acute providers and stakeholders to submit comments on ways to address substantial variations in Medicare spending, utilization, quality and profit margins within the post-acute care (PAC) sector.

  • Home Health Co-Payment: Co-payment proposals are short-sighted and will result in cost shifting to patients or increased institutional care. Compared to alternative care such as skilled nursing or a hospital stay, home health is a third of the cost. Without necessary home healthcare, patients will require healthcare in costly institutional settings - at much greater expense to government and families.
