We continue to make progress on the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act (S. 445/H.R. 1825), which would allow non-physician providers to sign home health orders.

If you haven’t reached out to your members of Congress yet, please do so! Senator Amy Klobuchar, Representative Keith Ellison, and Representative Collin Peterson have signed on as supporters, but we hope to gain more support from the Minnesota delegation! Be sure to follow-up with your contacts in their offices as well. Staffers tend to be very busy and can forget to present the information to their boss. As always, the NAHC Legislative Action Center can be very helpful with advocacy efforts.

Short on time but still want to advocate? Tweet them!

Amy Klobuchar @amyklobuchar  *Current supporter - thank her!
