AHCA’s ID/DD Members Storm the Hill During Fly-In Event

Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman

Yesterday, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (ID/DD) Residential Services Providers were in Washington DC for AHCA’s annual Hill Fly-In event. Participants heard from a number of Congressional speakers, including current and former Hill staffers and members of Congress. The morning started off with a Hill update from Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ12 pictured at left), and was followed by a Congressional Hill panel. 

Attendees also had the opportunity to hear from Senator Blanche Lincoln (pictured below), who is the Founder and Principal of the Lincoln Policy Group. During her 16-year career in the U.S. Congress — first as a two-term member of the House of Representatives and then as a two-term member of the U.S. Senate — Lincoln built a reputation as a results-oriented, bipartisan legislator.

After the morning event was over, the ID/DD providers went to Capitol Hill to discuss critical issues, including Medicaid, Medicaid Provider Assessments and Medicaid Managed Care. The 2015 ID/DD Hill Fly-In issue briefs can be found here. If you have any questions relating to this event, please don’t hesitate to contact AHCA’s Senior Director of Not for Profit & Constituent Services, Dana Halvorson.
