ID/DD Committee Chair Holly Jarek meets with Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-MA)
Last Wednesday, AHCA’s Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (ID/DD) Residential Services Providers were in Washington, D.C. for AHCA’s annual Hill Fly-In event.  Participants heard from several Congressional speakers, including current and former Hill staffers and members of Congress.  The began with a Hill update from Congressman Dwight Evans (D-PA-02), and was followed by a Managed Care update from Camille Dobson, the NASUAD Deputy Executive Director.  Attendees  also had the opportunity to hear from a Congressional Hill panel that included the Honorable Earl Pomeroy, the Honorable Jim McCrery, Bob Russell and Dan Elling

AHCA’s ID/DD providers then headed in the afternoon to Capitol Hill to discuss critical issues, including Medicaid, Medicaid Managed Care and workforce shortages.  There are some pictures posted online from the day's activities. 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
