Welcome to the NASL Issue & Advocacy Center



Mounting public and private pressure to restructure the nation's healthcare delivery system, a growing number of elderly Americans and limited financial resources have created an uncertain environment for long term and post acute care providers. 

NASL's advocacy efforts serve to provide your organization with the knowledge and tools necessary to ensure that your voice is heard in the congressional health care debate. The role of an informed constituent is a crucial one; you have the expertise and the local knowledge to provide valuable information to your legislators.

NASL encourages members to become involved - whether it's by scheduling a meeting with your elected representative, writing a letter, or making a phone call.

 


 

URGENT -- ACTION NEEDED TODAY -– NASL Advocates Needed to Ask their Members of Congress to Support Legislation to Stop Medicare Cuts

Urge your Member of Congress to cosponsor the Holding Providers Harmless from Medicare Cuts During COVID-19 Act of 2020 (H.R. 8702).  The bipartisan legislation would provide critical relief to providers scheduled to receive Medicare payment cuts under the fee schedule next year.
