The Delaware General Assembly has recessed until April 25, making now the perfect time to reach out to your legislators to schedule a visit with one of our clients or a discussion in your office. Support for our rate floor bill is growing. This bill would strengthen home health care across the state, ensuring that reimbursement rates from Medicaid-contracted organizations would be no lower than Medicaid pays directly. This would enable all home health care providers to make informed business decisions, with the assurance that private rates would never fall below that “floor.” We already have bipartisan support in the House. We’re meeting with additional representatives and moving to build support with senators on both sides of the aisle as well.
