Home Health Bill Has Over 100 Cosponsors
The Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act of 2013 (H.R. 2504), which would authorize nurse practitioners to certify their patients' eligibility for Medicare home health services, now has over 100 bipartisan Members of Congress cosponsoring this piece of legislation in the House of Representatives. This is an important milestone that would not have occurred without the hard work of NPs and others in the nursing community informing Members of Congress of the need for this common sense legislation. While this is an important milestone, we need more support for this legislation if it is to be passed into law this year. Please continue to ask your Members of Congress to support this important legislation
