Upcoming PAC Events
OCHCH Hits The Hill For The 2016 March on Washington (April 4th - 6th, 2016)
OCHCH members are headed to Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. for an opportunity to engage with Ohio's Congressional delegation to discuss our industries legislative issues as well as the vital role we play in the U.S. healthcare system.
Each year the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) along with its state partners, including OCHCH, hosts an annual trip to Washington DC to address issues critical to our industry. The event is usually scheduled in late March or early April (depending on the congressional calendar) to give members an opportunity to visit one-on-one with the US Congressmen and Senators.
Among the issues we might discuss with our representatives include: Medicare and Medicaid funding, face-to-face reporting issues, DOL overtime litigation, allowing nurse practitioners and physicians assistants to sign orders for home health care, expanding the use of telehealth, and interpretations of CMS rules.
This is an opportunity to make a connection with our federal legislative leaders. This is an important method of communicating industry concerns to Ohio's elected officials.
OCHCH makes appointments with the legislative offices well in advance. OCHCH encourages members from each of Ohio's congressional district to attend as the representatives like to schedule appointments with people who live in their districts.
