Over 400 American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living advocates came to Washington to hear from political leaders and advocate on behalf of long term and post-acute care providers on Monday and Tuesday.

The 2016 Congressional Briefing event included over 200 visits to Members of Congress and their staff from 47 states to discuss issues such as recent value-based purchasing proposals and the Medicaid provider assessment.

Keynote speaker Chuck Todd, host of NBC’s Meet the Press, spoke to attendees at length about his background covering politics in Washington and answered questions about the upcoming presidential election.

Advocates also heard from party leaders on both sides of the aisle: Representative Greg Walden (R-OR), Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee; Representative Xavier Becerra (D-CA), Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, and Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Majority Leader of the House of Representatives.
