September 13, 2022

A bipartisan group of 14 lawmakers sent a letter to CMS requesting the agency’s support of H.R. 7744, the Building America’s Healthcare Workforce Act. The AHCA/NCAL-backed bill would extend 1135 waiver flexibilities for temporary nursing aides (TNAs) serving in nursing homes for 24 months after the public health emergency (PHE) ends.
