Conference highlights at the 2019 Washington Legislative Conference included substantive remarks from keynote speaker Nick Uehlecke, an Advisor at the Department of Health & Human Services, as well as recognition for Barb Stockert of Sanford HealthCare Accessories as this year’s AAHomecare/Mal Mixon Legislative Advocate award honoree.  The group also rallied for our friend Karyn Estrella, a highly effective HME leader who has been a strong presence at past Legislative Conferences, by wearing purple.  

We urge you to reach out to your Representative and Senators when they return next week on these issues. Please note the supporting materials also referenced:

You can also send a pre-drafted letter on these issues to your legislators via our Action Center.  We suggest you add your own perspectives on these issues to the drafted text to make a more powerful impression. Find contact information for your Senators and Representative here – you can also email Gordon Barnes at gordonb@aahomecare.org for contact information for Congressional staff who handle healthcare issues for your legislators.
These next two months are critical to build on our efforts at the legislative conference and generate Congressional interest in these issues.  Please make it a priority to engage your legislators on whichever issues most directly impact your companies, patients and communities.
