Legislative Update

This week, Angela Westhoff testified on LD 824 Resolve, Directing the Department of Health and Human Services to Review Reimbursement Rates for Nursing Facilities on Islands and LD 938 An Act to Assist Nursing Homes in the Management of Facility Beds

Additionally, the Health and Human Services Committee held a work session for LD 451 an Act to Ensure Transparent and Accountable Temporary Nurse Agencies. In preparation for the session, MHCA provided the committee additional information about the bill and how it impacts our industry. The committee voted to table the bill until they received more information from the Attorney General's office and had more time to consider amending LD 451. 

As always, we will continue to monitor and testify on upcoming bills as they are scheduled.
