When Congress returns, the health care reform battle will begin in earnest. The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) is urging the public to keep up the pressure and intensify efforts so that the nursing home legislation will be passed. The NAELA hopes that people will call their U.S. Senators and Representative in early July to voice their support for action on comprehensive health reform, and to urge the inclusion of supports and services for individuals in need of long-term care in any health care bill. Nursing home legislation is imperative to ensuring the health of our elder community. To read more about the nursing home legislation, please click the link.
