Medicare Medicaid Private Duty Government Affairs & Advocacy

U.S. House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Subcommittee on Health Chair Brett Guthrie (R-KY) have announced a subcommittee hearing titled "Supporting Access to Long-Term Services and Supports: An Examination of the Impacts of Proposed Regulations on Workforce and Access to Care.” This hearing, scheduled for Wednesday, October 25, 2023, at 2:00 PM ET, will address the potential impact of proposed health care workforce regulations on access to care.

“Americans receiving long-term services and support, including seniors and people with disabilities, need access to quality care. Yet, the Biden administration has prioritized new rules with a one-size-fits-all approach. We've heard concerns in our communities that the administration's recently proposed nursing home ratio rule and so-called access rule will force facilities to close their doors and jeopardize patient care. This hearing will give members an opportunity to hear from expert witnesses to better understand the unique challenges that our nation’s most vulnerable are facing,” said Chairs Rodgers and Guthrie.

The hearing will be open to the public and press and will be live-streamed online at
