Congressional Briefing To Address Provider Assessments and Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Bill

Drew Thies

One of the most important ways you can advocate for your centers is to come to Washington and meet face-to-face with your Representatives. We in the long term and post-acute care field need to play defense now and protect funding and reimbursement rates. Use your voice to oppose any legislative proposal that reduces the Medicaid provider assessment rate or quality assessment fee.

Similarly, VBP policies should not put cost savings above quality patient care. Instead, this bill needs to give providers incentives to improve quality and it needs to provide clear measures of these quality advancements. Reach out to your state executives to schedule meetings with your Representatives. Talk to your Members of Congress, and send the message that value-based policies cannot simply be about cuts.

Learn more about all that's happening at Congressional Briefing, see the complete agenda, and register now.
