House Medicaid Task Force Proposals Are Set to Release in 2017

Posted on Monday, May 23, 2016 10:08 PM

The Medicaid Task Force was introduced last year by the Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives, implementing changes to the Medicaid program. Republican Brett Guthrie (R-KY) is the President of Task Force.

Republican Guthrie explained the Task Force will release in 2017, allowing more time for the national elections to determine control of Congress and the White House.

NAHC presented the following Medicaid home care priorities at the 2016 March on Washington conference:
• Position Medicaid home care providers as strategic partners and advocates for home care programs within Medicaid managed care organizations
• Protect and expand access to mandatory Medicaid home care and hospice benefits
• Engage with stakeholders to develop and advocate for national uniform data sets and measurable quality outcomes in Medicaid home care, in both fee for service and managed care
• Ensure appropriate reimbursement rates as well as fair and appropriate compensation and benefits for Medicaid home care staff
