Hospice Advocates Visit Capitol

Last week, March 24,2014, hospice advocates spent the afternoon talking to Iowa legislators about the importance of hospice to Iowa’s residents as part of HPCAI Legislative Day. Participants met with House Minority Leader. Mark Smith (D-Marshalltown) to discuss issues impacting hospice providers, including facility regulation and Medicaid reimbursement.

Advocates also met with their individual representatives and senators.  Because of the time and effort put in by volunteers, legislators are reminded of the value and importance of hospice care.

Below: Are advocates meeting with Rep. Jared Klein from Hospice of Washington County.
