Seniors and the disabled have some legislators rallying for them in Washington D.C. U.S. Representative Greg Walden is joined by 26 bipartisan co-sponsors introduced legislation to ensure seniors and disabled citizens have timely access to home health services under Medicare. The bill allows physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists and certified nurse midwives to order health services their Medicare clients. Congressman Walden: “This bill will reduce unnecessary and duplicative burdens on providers and seniors in need of home health services, particularly in rural areas like central, southern, and eastern Oregon where physicians are scarce, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, clinical nurse specialists, and certified nurse-midwives are essential components of the health care delivery system. Not only are they serving on the front lines of primary care, but also in many areas they are the only option readily available.”  Supporters of the bill say this legislation eliminates barriers to the home health workers that urgently need them.
