Public Policy Priorities

ElevatingHOME and VNAA advocate on behalf of home health and hospice providers that offer comprehensive healthcare to Medicare, Medicaid, uninsured and under-insured patients as well as an array of community benefits. While the policy agenda is distinctive in terms of the mission and values of its nonprofit, safety net members, it addresses issues that impact all home health and hospice providers. ElevatingHOME and VNAA advocate before Congress, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) and other federal agencies and works in collaboration with other national organizations representing the healthcare continuum.

ElevatingHOME & VNAA focus their advocacy efforts on two key areas:

  • Secure and sustainable provider payment and patient access
  • The ability to work to full scope and training for licensed professionals

  • Flexibility and expansion from traditional fee-for-service models
  • Alignment of high-quality and outcomes driving home-based care’s value
  • Focus on palliative and advanced illness options
