You Can Help Preserve Access to Home Health Care
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has proposed cutting provider reimbursements by an unprecedented $810 million. This cut would be particularly damaging to home health agencies, like Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey (VNA), who are already suffering from increased inflation, staffing challenges, rising fuel prices, and unprecedented costs of COVID-19 procedures and supplies.
A bipartisan bill has been proposed to prevent CMS from making these disastrous cuts to home care. The Preserving Access to Home Health Act, S. 4605 is being led by Senators Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan) and Susan Collins (R-Maine).
Since 1898, VNA has been providing care in the home that is proven to be the preferred choice for seniors and people with disabilities. Reducing payments to home health agencies threatens access to this vital care.
