Representation: TAHC liaisons with the National Association for Home Care (NAHC) on federal laws/rules affecting home health.

A membership newsletter offers timely topics in an abbreviated document that paints the BIG PICTURE of homecare issues at the state and federal levels. Listserve postings alert Members of new issues as they occur.
