Federal Policy Hits Your Bottom Line!
The 2014 Leadership Summit is the call to action when we tackle the most pressing issues and advance ANCOR’s agenda with current and returning lawmakers, the Obama Administration, and advocacy partners.
Why is attending the 2014 ANCOR Leadership Summit: Shaping Policy so important?
- Reason 1: The new definition of community directly affects your options for supporting community living for the people you serve and will make housing and workforce challenges even more pressing.
- Reason 2: The new DOL restrictions on the companionship rule challenge your ability to choose the best service delivery model for some people with disabilities, which is why you need to understand risks associated with the announced DOL enforcement delay.
- Reason 3: The growth of managed care, state and local minimum wage increases, the employer mandate in the ACA, and expected DOL restrictions on overtime pay exemptions — all of these unfunded mandates and systems changes challenge your ability to ensure the best outcomes for the people with disabilities you support, which is why Congress needs to understand the aggregate impact.
Contrary to national media coverage of gridlock on the Hill, Congress is serious about passing bi-partisan disability policy legislation. From the recent passage of the "Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act" to exciting new legislation that’s being introduced, members of Congress in both parties are demonstrating a commitment to people with disabilities—and we need you to help them make the right decisions.
We must work together at this Leadership Summit to develop a unified understanding of what's at stake, what must happen to ensure sustainable long-term supports and services to people with disabilities, and how to deliver a powerful message to our federal legislators and regulators.
- What opportunities for enhanced supports will be created by passage of the ABLE ACT?
- What is the path forward for a national strategy for LTSS financing for seniors and people with disabilities?
- What does the Idaho rate case before the U.S. Supreme Court mean for providers?
It is critically important — in all these areas and more — that we educate ourselves and make our voices heard in Washington. The landscape is changing and we need to make sure those changes help providers offer the best supports and services, instead of tying their hands.
Join us in Washington, DC as we address solutions to the most challenging policy and funding issues confronting providers at the 2014 ANCOR Leadership Summit: Shaping Policy!
