NHPCO & Alliance to Offer Health Care Reform Phone Forum Next Week

The negotiations, progress and temporary set-backs of health care reform continue, and the hospice community has never had more on the line. Will the BNAF rate cuts be addressed in the bill? Will Congress modernize the Medicare Hospice Benefit and expand access to hospice? Could access be hindered by the health overhaul? Will we suffer more cuts to help pay for reform?

Please join NHPCO President/CEO Donald Schumacher, Vice President of Public Policy Jonathan Keyserling, and members of the Alliance for Care at the End of Life lobbying team on Wednesday, July 29 at 3pm EDT for an update and responses to your questions on the timing, substance and process of what’s to come in health care reform.

This unprecedented opportunity is being offered at no charge for NHPCO members; however, please be considerate of this generous offer by restricting your registrations to one phone line per hospice program.
