Health Care Reform Implementation Carries On

AHCA/NCAL Continues to Influence the Implementation of the Affordable Care Act

March 23, 2011

As implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act continues over the next few years, AHCA/NCAL remains committed to working with policymakers to ensure that current and potential challenges for nursing and assisted living facilities are addressed.
  • Many regulations still must be developed in order to put the reforms established in the law into practice. We know how important it is that providers have a voice in the development of those regulations that will impact the long term and post-acute care profession, and AHCA/NCAL is continuously striving to make sure we have a seat at the table.
  • We’re also keeping a close watch on the need for any “technical corrections” as these regulations and other programs are developed, so that our members are not put at a disadvantage. 
  • Additionally, AHCA/NCAL is pursuing a legislative agenda that addresses other critical issues not included in health care reform, including a close look at Medicaid funding.
Meanwhile, we realize that understanding the many facets and complexities of the Affordable Care Act can seem daunting. So AHCA/NCAL is also working diligently to supply our members with the best available information regarding what the law means for the profession through easy to understand materials and webinars.

Check out AHCA/NCAL’s dedicated webpage regarding health care reform not only to access our Affordable Care Act resources, but also to learn more about our role in implementation.

Because AHCA/NCAL understands that it’s more than just reaching milestones-- it’s about reaching results. To let us know how we can do more, contact us directly or share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
