In Case You Missed It: WiAHC Finalizes 2023-24 Policy Agenda Outline

November 21, 2022 10:07 AM | Anonymous

A previous edition of the WiAHC Advocacy Newsletter reported the association’s 2023-24 Policy Agenda was pending final approval. We are now pleased to unveil the final document, which will be used to guide the association’s advocacy efforts over the next two years.

In addition to using member input to develop the association’s advocacy roadmap, the WiAHC Legislative Committee considered the following criteria when developing the Policy Agenda and individual issue priorities: 1.) The benefit to WiAHC members; 3.) The extent to which it will improve home health care in Wisconsin; and 3.) The likelihood of legislative/regulatory success.

The WiAHC Policy Agenda provides a broad policy vision for advancing home health care in Wisconsin and identifies the following specific legislative and regulatory goals for 2023-24:

  • Regulatory reform legislation to modernize DHS 133, including provisions to better align Wisconsin home care regulations with federal home care regulations.
  • Promote public awareness and increase policy influence of home health care, such as the creation of a Home Health Care Advisory Council at the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
  • Grow/strengthen Wisconsin’s home health care workforce: Secure additional state funding to support    increasing the supply of nurse educators in Wisconsin.
  • Expand home health telehealth flexibility to leverage the effective delivery of virtual care, which ultimately benefits patients and helps to alleviate industry-wide workforce challenges.
