WASHINGTON, DC – This year’s Virtual Washington Legislative Conference is perfectly timed to make a major impact on Capitol Hill. Hill sources have told AAHomecare that Congress will need to pass a Continuing Resolution, or temporary government funding measure, by September 30, 2022.
That funding measure is a potential legislative vehicle for other items, including DMEPOS competitive bidding and non-competitive bidding area relief. This makes September a crucial time to advocate on these issues and other HME policy priorities with members of Congress.
We encourage you to plan early and set aside September 21 for the Virtual Washington Legislative Conference. You’ll join with your peers for maximum impact as you meet with your legislators in the House and Senate to educate them on the challenges you are facing and the need for reimbursement rates that reflect market reality action on Medicare rates and other important issues.
Please register early to help us schedule the strongest possible slate of meetings for you and your colleagues.The conference is just 13 weeks from today. Keeping Advocacy Simple: We provide the Zoom conference line, and you join colleagues online to advocate for HME issues. Meetings with legislators will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET on Sept 21.
One week prior to the meetings, on Sept 14 at 2:00 PM ET, AAHomecare will host a one-hour online advocacy event offering issue education, training, and a chance to hear from thought leaders in the industry. Register today and help us keep HME issues front and center in Washington.
