ID/DD Providers Meet in Washington, Head to Capitol Hill

Dana Halvorson

AHCA/NCAL members who provide long term care for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) are in Washington today to meet with colleagues, receive legislative and lobbying briefings, and advocate in front of lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

The Annual ID/DD Conference and Fly-In features over 30 providers from over a dozen states across the country over two days.

The ID/DD providers will meet with several lawmakers from both sides of the aisle in both the House and Senate, including important committee heads and members of Congressional leadership.

The group will focus on explaining the importance of Medicaid funding for long term care services, including the provider tax program. They will also advocate for fairness to providers in Managed Care settings as well as guest worker reform to help alleviate the health care staffing shortage.
