Congressional Members meet AHCA/NCAL Members in Nebraska, Kansas

Members of Congress were back in their districts last week in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and AHCA/ NCAL members did not miss the opportunity to welcome them into their facilities. And we hope you won’t either after hearing about how these visits can highlight what matters most.

Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Rep. Lee Terry (R-Neb. 2), and Rep. Adrian Smith (R-Neb. 3) met with AHCA/NCAL members in their home states while touring the care environments and answering residents’ and caregivers’ questions.

On Tuesday, January 21, Sen. Moran visited Sharon Lane Health Services in Shawnee, KS for a breakfast with state affiliate, Kansas Health Care Association. The group discussed a variety of issues, ranging from quality improvements amongst skilled nursing providers to the regulatory burdens providers face when receiving some forms of Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement.

Rep. Terry held a Senior Citizens Forum at Orchard Gardens Assisted Living in Valley, NE on Friday. The Congressman fielded questions from residents of Orchard Gardens and those in attendance about current Medicare policy and the future of the program.

Rep. Smith was hosted at The Willows Assisted Living in Neligh, NE, for a luncheon and discussion with providers.

We are thankful for the actions of all of our members to get involved with their Members of Congress during Congressional recess periods. If you would like more information about how to get involved, contact Drew Thies at dthies@ahca.org or 202 898-2816.
