State Priorities

2023 Legislative Priorities:

  • Increase state funding for non-medical personal assistance services and shift nursing under the Commonwealth’s Medical Assistance Program so that providers can offer competitive wages and meet the increasing demand for services.
  • Support initiatives for workforce development for the healthcare continuum to protect and preserve access to high quality in-home care.
  • Continue the use of virtual interviewing in home care to allow for efficient hiring and onboarding.
  • Allow LPNs to make pronouncements of death in the hospice setting.
  • Support meaningful updates to the Older Adult Protective Services Act to keep seniors safe while also protecting access to quality care.
