Advocacy Education & Resources

NAHC seeks to grow an educated and passionate network of advocates. We aim to remove boundaries and create easy avenues for participation and engagement to ensure you feel empowered in your roles. We strive to provide up a suite of carefully cultivated, up-to date, relevant educational resources for you that will:

  • Help grow your knowledge about the home health care and hospice industries
  • Illuminate the legislative process in the United States and how you as an advocate can participate
  • Clarify what grassroots advocacy is and the avenues available to you engage with your legislators
  • Enable you to feel empowered to share your story and personal experiences
  • Illustrate what it’s like to talk with/visit an elected official
  • Provide insight and details on the current issues and opportunities impact access to quality home health care and hospice services today

State Fact Sheets (NAHC Members Only)

The State Fact Sheet Compendium includes individual fact sheets for all US states, Washington DC, and several territories. Data includes a home health and hospice “snapshot” of each state, providing information regarding the number of Medicare home health and hospice agencies, patients served, number of visits, and annual Medicare reimbursement. Other information includes home health agency ownership types (e.g., proprietary, non-profit), the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) staff, and average OASIS scores for the state. A state map is also provided, which shows how many counties are served by home care agencies. Non-members may purchase these through the Caring Store.
