Legislative Update

Next week is looking to have many bills that affect our industry. A few bills to highlight that MHCA will testify on are LD 1575 - An Act to Promote Quality and Innovation in Nursing and Residential Care Facilities and LD 1601 - An Act Regarding Visitation Policies for Long-term Care Facilities, Hospice Providers and Hospitals. We will also testify on LD 1797 - An Act to Expand Maine's Health Care Workforce by Expanding Educational Opportunities and Providing Tax Credits and LD 1718 - An Act to Encourage Participation in Maine's Essential Support Workforce Through Access to Higher Education.

The MHCA team will monitor bills as they are printed and scheduled for hearings and work sessions.
