Larry Minnix, President & CEO of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA) urges all providers, residents, clients, staff members and volunteers to call their Senators on October 13th between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern at (800) 958-5374.
“It is a pivotal time for health care reform,” says Mr. Linnix. “Negotiations are intense as the Senate majority leadership determines what provisions to include in the health care reform legislation on its way to the Senate floor. That’s why it’s essential that your senators hear from you about the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports (CLASS) plan. Including these provisions in the final reform bill would provide a sustainable and fiscally sound way to provide America’s older adults and persons with disabilities with the services they need in the place they call home.” Click on the icon below to here Larry’s message.
