Thanks to your advocacy efforts, and that of your colleagues and patients, New Hampshire’s legislature and Governor ended their months long stalemate and passed a state budget everyone can agree on.
The approved budget package includes over $5 million for a 5% rate increase targeted for Choices for Independence home nursing, home health aide, personal care, and homemaker services, along with a retroactive supplemental payment for CFI home health services provided in state fiscal year 2015.
And it wouldn’t have happened without YOU and your representatives in Concord! Please take a minute to thank them for their support of home care as well.
