A Texas home care and hospice group traveled to Washington, D.C. this week to voice its concerns to Congress regarding the affordability of care services.
The Texas Association for Home Care & Hospice joined other industry providers from across the country who are participating in a nationwide appeal for congressional support.
“Home care allows families to remain with their loved ones is more affordable than institutional care and is in dire need of congressional backing right now,” said Rachel Hammon, executive director of TAHC&H, in a statement. “With a 14 percent reduction in Medicare home health, which began Jan. 1, 2014, as authorized by the Affordable Care Act, many home health providers will be forced out of business and patients will lose access to care.”
The Washington trip occurred between Sunday and Wednesday, March 26.
