MHCA Continues to Work at the State House

MHCA is continuing to make our needs known to lawmakers in Augusta. This past week included appearances before the Health and Human Services Committee and the Appropriations and Financial Affairs Committee. 

One highlight was our testimony in support of LD 251 - Resolve, to Classify Employee Health Insurance as a Fixed Cost for MaineCare Reimbursement in Nursing Facilities and neither for nor against LD 99 - An Act to Clarify the Allowable Temperature Range in Certain Long-term Care Facilities. Wanda Pelkey, Mike Tyler, Mary Jane Richards, and Ben Hawkins spoke before the committee to elucidate the state of long term care in Maine. MHCA sincerely appreciates Wanda, Mike, and Mary Jane for taking the time to share their valuable perspectives with these legislators. 

The appearance resulted in a positive Maine News Center clip. Click here to view and read the segment.
