Advocacy


VNAA and ElevatingHOME advocate for regulations and legislation to support the unique interests of home-based care providers with a clear focus on the future. As a member, you are represented by a national organization with a longstanding and trusted relationship with Congress, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC), the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), and other key federal agencies. We offer guidance and resources on emerging policy initiatives to help you prepare and respond appropriately and guide new program development. We also provide support, education, and clarification on Federal regulatory issues.
