The American Association for Homecare (AAHomecare) works to preserve and strengthen access to care for the millions of Americans who require medical care in their homes.
AAHomecare represents healthcare providers, equipment manufacturers, and other organizations in the homecare community. AAHomecare members serve the medical needs of millions of Americans who require oxygen equipment and therapy, mobility assistive technologies, medical supplies, inhalation drug therapy, home infusion, and other home medical equipment, therapies, services, and supplies in the home. Membership reflects a broad cross-section of the homecare community, including providers of all sizes operating approximately 3,000 locations in all 50 states.
The Association is the voice for homecare in Washington. The AAHomecare lobbies Congress, the Administration, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and other agencies to make sure Medicare and other federal programs do not unfairly burden homecare or create an unfavorable business environment.
Whether it is a legislative issue being debated on Capitol Hill or a Medicare regulation being proposed by CMS, AAHomecare represents and fights for the interests of homecare companies that provide home medical equipment, products and supplies and the manufacturers whose customers supply those items to Medicare beneficiaries.
AAHomecare also keeps members informed about upcoming regulation, the latest business trends in the sector, and compliance issues with education forums, networking opportunities, and our weekly Wednesday in Washington newsletter.
The Association strongly encourages members to take an active role in legislative matters by establishing ongoing relationships with their members of Congress and state legislators and by participating in the AAHomecare PAC.
Homecare provides tremendous value for Americans’ healthcare dollar and is an important part of the solution to the nation’s healthcare crisis.
