September 22, 2020
AHCA/NCAL President and CEO penned an op-ed in Provider Magazine calling attention to the lack of support long term care providers received early in the pandemic and called for additional support from Congress in COVID-19 relief funding and future Medicaid reimbursement reforms.
“Caregivers in nursing homes and assisted living communities have done everything in their power to protect our most vulnerable from COVID-19. Despite unprecedented challenges and delayed support early on, they have bravely answered the call of duty and have saved thousands of lives.”Mark Parkinson, AHCA/NCAL President and CEO
